Nice afternoon tour - The whole experience was enjoyable from the meal to the narration on the tour. Was well worth the cost. The crew / wait staff did a fine job.

Best meal in London. - We barely made the cruise due to bad traffic, but luckily we did. We had a window seat which was nice, i guess because we made the reservations about 1 month before. There was no tour director trying to talk while we ate... I prefer it that way. They served us drinks and cocktails quickly. They had plenty of very nice servers. When the meal came out i was very surprised to see how tasty it was... maybe the best meal i had while in London. Then after the meal was served, the sight seeing moderator came on the speaker. We moved up on top deck to see better. He was hilarious and we enjoyed him a lot.

Lovely day! - The views on the Thames River were lovely. It’s a nice way to see the city on the water. Lunch & desert were included. Cocktails were not included in the booking price. It was a lovely experience.

A lovely experience I would do again - We went in mid March on a lovely sunny day. It the food was brilliant, I haven’t seen anyone post on here about the menu and I think it’s seasonal but we had chicken with leek, tarragon, mushroom sauce with Dauphinoise potatoes, mangetout and seasonal vegetables. The dessert was a lemon gateau. The staff were all really friendly, the man who did the guide was friendly and made it quite enjoyable. The speakers downstairs were a bit loud however we went onto the roof to sit and listen inbetween courses so we didn’t really hear it downstairs.

Relaxing and fun - As someone who has already experienced most of the typical tourist attractions around London, this was the perfect way to start off another visit. The lunch cruise was relaxing and both the food and service were great. We were fortunate to also have a beautiful day to cruise, so that was another plus. I would highly recommend this lunch cruise, if only to add another way to experience the best of London!

Most enjoyable cruise - Lovely experience. We have visited London many times but this is the first time booking a cruise. All the staff were really friendly and accommodating. As we don’t eat meat we had the vegetarian option which was tasty but could have been a little warmer. Aside from this it was thoroughly enjoyable.
