We had the most fabulous time, cruising down the Thames. Couldn’t recommend highly enough! The boat is beautiful and we loved watching the amazing houses, waving at people on the bank and having a good girlie catch-up in the sunshine. Thank you so much.

We enjoyed an excellent four days cruising on the Thames, travelling through some beautiful and unspoilt stretches of river from Reading as far as Clifton Hampden near Oxford and returning to Henley via the beautiful villages of Sonning and Shiplake.

After watching Four in a bed seeing your boat Geanna I knew you deserved to win. I worked for a hotel boat company and I have to say what a beautiful boat you have. I will doubt you will need to advertise and I would like to say you both deserved to win the all way through.


Just a quick email to say a very big thank you for such a wonderful stay!! We had a memorable time on your amazing boat! You have thought of everything to make for a VERY comfortable stay…I’d like to move in! Also thank you for taking time out on Boxing day to take us for a trip! It was brilliant!
