An Overview

From Lechlade in the beautiful Cotswolds to the outskirts of London, the Thames winds through beautiful countryside which is perfect for family and group holidays.

Our self guided tours run when you want and are designed by you! please contact us to get prices and availability, but as a guide we suggest you start with our price list.


We offer a range of accommodation to suit your trip preferences. All our accommodation is carefully chosen to ensure it fits the logistics of the trip, and is of a high standard.

Accommodation preferences can affect the price of your trip, and we will contact you once a booking enquiry has been made to discuss options. Accommodation is subject to availability, so the earlier you book the better.

If you choose to camp either on the boats or at campsites along the routes you will have the greatest flexibility.
