Boating on the Thames, you discover historical cities and untouched countryside.
Canal boat holidays on the Thames are a pleasant way to travel through South East England, a region soaked in history and luscious nature. As you gaze at magnificent Windsor Castle, Hampton Court Palace or the Bridge of Sighs in Oxford, you feel transported back in time. The river meanders through large towns and cities with shops, pubs and museums. You’ll also stop in small villages where the pace is slow and the living is easy!

Reviews for Die Themse cruises
Memorable is the word. It rained every day. That being said, even if the weather was fine, the experience would have been sub-par. It is just not a venue worth travelling across an ocean and spending a week on a boat. There were few areas of interest on the river, few restaurants of note and few experiences worth the bother. However, I will say that the lock masters were terrific-helpful, patient and just plain friendly.
Would not recommend this trip. We did the Midi a few years ago a trip we have recommended many times.
Lovely postcard moment viewing Windsor Castle and the royal swans....great fishing haul with fresh perch for dinner one night....charming pubs...friendly people.....
All the towns along the way were lovely. Would recommend mooring in Windsor one night and strolling both Windor castle and the Eton college grounds.
Marlow was nice' enjoyed the locks.
The bounty inn was a nice pub and allowed mooring if you were a customer.
Gear weather, good boat, good places to eat
