Hello. I'm sorry to hear about this disappointment. All our tickets are issued for fixed departure times. If you booked via Viator or Tripadvisor I would suggest that you contact them directly as it sounds as though an error may have been made at their end and they should be able to refund you. Many thanks.
Not easy to find, asked across the road and all the went well. Greeted by very friendly people, sat and had a drink before our boat trip. Relaxing pleasant and amusing. Love it, especially after being on my feet all day. A must do if in Oxford.
We greatly enjoyed our 50 minute river tour in Oxford as a our last activity before leaving town. Our guide was informative and entertaining about the buildings and colleges along the river's edge as well as the world of regatta racing, especially in Oxford. The time flew by and felt as though we only had 20 quick minutes instead of the actual time of nearly an hour. We took the 11 a.m. tour, and were immediately immersed in another world away from traffic and city noise. We were also impressed by the guide and the restaurant manager who were very helpful in arranging a taxi for us to make a tight connection at the train station which had been complicated by the local road construction and closures. The boat was clean and well cared for, blankets were available in case anyone needed a cover when the breeze picked up...the skipper thought of everything!
I absolutely loved this river cruise! Our tour guide Alex was not only knowledgeable but also engaging and funny, and the boat itself was very comfortable. The one-hour tour was perfect for a day trip in Oxford, and I not only learned a bit about the area but also enjoyed the atmosphere with only a few other guests. All in all a lovely experience!
The river cruise in a small boat was highly enjoyable and the guide showed us places of interest and told us stories about various events and people who had lived along the cruise. The boat was driven by electricity, so the sailing was quiet and quite enjoyable. I highly recommend this cruise and will for sure try again if I go to Oxford.
