We took the Oxford Sightseeing River Cruise during our trip in October. It was absolutely delightful. The boat was small, the guide was excellent and you see Oxford in a whole new way, while enjoying the river-side sights and hearing about their history. We highly recommend

We showed up at the appointed time and place on October 16, 2019. Everything was locked, and nobody was there. Luckily, our cab driver had not driven away. We used his phone to call Oxford River Cruises and were told that our trip had been cancelled as the river was running

Response from oxricru, Owner at Oxford Sightseeing River Cruise Along The University Regatta Course
Responded 11 Jan 2020
Dear Jeanne I'm sorry that we had to cancel your cruise. The sailing was cancelled due to high river conditions which would have made it dangerous to go out on the water. We did contract you using the phone number you provided at the time of booking but were no able to speak with you as, unfortunately, you did not have your phone with you. As you booked using an agent the refund will be processed by them and will appear in your account after a few days. Best wishes Giles @ Oxford River Cruises
