Amazing wealth of knowledge and friendly running commentary during the trip. So helpful with two out of four old crocks , and most obliging when photographs of the day needed. looking forward to taking granddaughters on the Halloween event.

Messing About On The River

Janet Welch

Brought some friends on a whistle stop tour of the area and there was the gorgeous Etherbert, which I had previously discovered, just about to set off so aboard we went! Lovely place Fordwich, lovely boat The Ethelbert, and a lovely sunny day to go down the river. The crew of two were friendly and helpful, and I will be repeating the experience, in fact one of the friends has already gone again! For us, the commentary was rather overwhelming, not enough time for quiet reflection but a tiny fly in the ointment when considering our whole experience.

Wonderful, relaxing trip along the Stour on the Ethelbert with our two grandchildren. Clear water, fish, birds, swans, ducks, insects - just enjoy the views and the calm and the informative chat. Lovely, friendly people and reasonable prices. Thank you, Peter and Julie, and good luck with your venture. We will be back.

Absolutely brilliant. They helped my disabled grandmother get on and off the boat as she can barely walk. They made us feel really special and truly went above and beyond. 6 of us went for my birthday treat and i could not have been happier with their service. The views were fantastic as well. Highly recommend. We will definitely go back again.

Lovely Day Out

Tanya Tong

Just had a lovely unexpected trip along the river on the beautifully restored Ethelburt! We were lucky enough to see lots of wildlife including Kingfishers, numerous dragonflies and damselflies, Moorhens and their fluffy babies, water boatmen, swans, a bullfinch, a green woodpecker and more that I can't remember. Really friendly people and really well priced. Thanks again.

Friendly, Relaxing And Wonderful!

My mum, daughter and myself were privileged to be the first official passengers last Friday (26th May) and what a wonderful trip it was. An hour of peaceful cruising downstream from Fordwich on the River Stour on the delightful Ethelbert. We were welcomed aboard by the very friendly crew, Julie and Peter, so felt very much at home, and relaxed, as we drifted along on the water watching the wildlife and the beautiful scenery of this quiet and almost secret part of the river. We saw fish swimming amongst the weed, as the water was so clear, and heard beautiful birdsong in the trees and reeds. We also learnt about 'thresh' and other useful pieces of information as and when we encountered anything of interest. It was nice to enjoy the peace with just the right amount of commentary for our trip. We had such a lovely time on the boat that we were reluctant to get off! We hope to take other members of the family and friends with us next time, and perhaps book for even longer than the hour! Lovely food and drink at the Fordwich Arms (next to the mooring) too! A wonderful time, thank you!

Highly Recommended!

We had a wonderful trip down the river. The views are beautiful and the staff friendly. A calm and tranquil experience. Thank you Fordwich river tours!

Our Trip On Ethelbert

We were given a wonderful welcome aboard the very pretty Ethelbert. The setting where you board her is situated right between the old Fordwich Town Hall and the Fordwich Arms. This is probably one the River Stour's prettiest stretches. We saw loads of wildlife including flocks of Canada geese and many ducks along with offspring and many varieties of birds. We saw large fish as the the captain navigated his way through lily pads and the twists and turn of the river. There was also a very large pike ! ...... It was so wonderfully peaceful and very good value for money. On our return we had a lovely meal in the Fordwich Arms which again we can highly recommend. Will be going again as the river will be different in the changing seasons. Thank you very much Fordwich River Tours.

Our Trip With You

Thank you so much for a lovely experience. We never realised just how beautiful the river Stour is. My wife had never seen a kingfisher and one flew past her head just missing her. I loved seeing all the fish.We will do it again.Roger and Caroline
