French Brothers Boats On The Thames

Group organisers have been invited to apply to join French Brothers’ new programme of familiarisation trips, which will take place this April.

Running on various dates between 11th and 21st April, the trips come in two varieties. The first are morning cruises with lunch, which leave Windsor Promenade at 11am and return at 1.30pm.

The second are afternoon tea cruises that depart at 2.30pm and return at 4.30pm.

Active GTOs can apply to French Brothers with an e-mail expressing their interest, stating a few dates that they’d be available to take the trip.

There is no charge for the experience and all successful applicants will be able to take a guest along on the trip with them.

“We are proud of our product and as such we are keen to show group organisers and coach operators what we do,” explained Don Yates from French Brothers.

The deadline for applications is 29th February.
