What people say

“We had such a wonderful day yesterday.  Such a caring friendly atmosphere; such a beautiful trip, wonderful food! Our 61st wedding anniversary is today but we celebrated it yesterday (on the cruise). We so appreciate that you all give your time and expertise to this imaginative project.”

“Thank you so much for such a fantastic school trip experience this week. Our three year 4 classes have absolutely loved it and they can’t stop talking about what they’ve learnt! We will definitely be visiting again in the future.”

“We feel that our residents’ general wellbeing benefits from these trips.  The majority always return happy and enthused about their day. As each person lives with dementia, they may forget the actual day within a very short time but the feeling of joy remains.”

“The Environmental Day was perfect, and the parent helpers and Beavers really enjoyed it. The highlights seem to be finding out the wind speed by throwing the stick in the river, learning about the archaeological items found by the Thames and blowing bubbles!  I will definitely try to make it an annual event with my Beavers. Thank you so much!”

“A huge thank you for the amazing trips you have run for us. You guys are really easy to work with, very accommodating – and also so understanding when we had too many off sick and had to postpone a trip at rather short notice. AND you make the trips absolutely brilliant for the youngsters, who come away from their adventures with renewed confidence and enthusiasm.”

“We have been coming on the Thames Venturer for a number of years.  Believe 10 or more, and we always enjoy it, this is why we keep coming, the crew are always friendly and helpful and cheerful, and do all they can to make a trip as enjoyable as possible.”

“Many of the children said it was the best trip they had ever been on. They learnt a huge amount. All the adults enjoyed it too. You were extremely helpful and accommodating with our child in a wheelchair.”

“(My daughter) has never been away with her friends before…. never doing a thing of her choosing. You and your guys made that possible….. Can you imagine living a semi institutional life where you get a choice of a few things from someone else’s choices to having free reign to finally be the architect. She was so happy.… We were treated with tolerance and kindness all the way, there was nothing we could ask that was too much. I can see that (my daughter) has grown in confidence since that trip.”
