SUPER TIME , A SUPER EXPERIENCE, EXCELLENT CANAPES, AND A TERRIFIC PRICE, COULD NOT HAVE WANTED MORE.
Wonderfujl beginning to our stay in London. Lovely sunset views, wonderful appetizers and the champagne just topped it off. Highly recommend this tour to anyone especially if it is your first day after a long international flight.
We met a British couple who were delightful and very informative about what we were passing by. We were in the cabin part of the boat. I think there was some kind of explanation on the top deck.
My group had loads of fun on the cruise. We got to see a so many London landmarks from a different perspective along the river. The food and drink was very good, and everyone aboard was having a marvelous time. Would highly recommend this tour for a relaxing end to a busy day of sightseeing.
The cruise was absolutely fantastic. It will bring you further up until Canary Wharf. The view on that day is magnificent with perfect sunset to enjoy. They will serve you with drink and snacks throughout the cruise. Will definitely recommend to others,
this was such a suprsie fun trip for us!!! we LOVED it! and was by far our favorite thing we did in London. we did it the 1st day we arrived and even though it wasn't very sunny out for a sunset (that is London for you...over cast and cloudy)...it didn't matter at all. most of the people on board were so cold..we all stayed below deck (but there were plenty of seats above deck to sight see and take pictures). downstairs they offer drinks and complimentary appetizers (was not expecting that) and some live light jazz music. we loved it and would definitly do it again!
Great views of the city but it wasnt really sunset because it didnt get dark till 10pm. A glass of champagne was included but the snacks were very light on unless you were purchasing additional drinks. Some comentary would have been helpful
We did cruises on the Thames, Seine, and Tiber Rivers on an extended European vacation. This cruise on the Thames was the best by far. Convenient boarding location, nice boat, plenty of Kodak moments!
Great service, cruise really captures the beauty of London, complementary bubbles was really fun. Would definitely do this cruise again. Highly recommend
Lovely cruise. A great way to start my first night in London.
This tour was enjoyed by all of us. We would recommend it.
I would definitely recommend doing this cruise. Very relaxing but also another great way to see buildings and points of interest in London. Loved it.
The trip down the Thames was spectacular and relaxing. However, the wine and snacks left a lot to be desired. I would have gladly paid a little more for better of each. I also had a dreadful experience. I had originally booked the Tea on the Thames. I had my confirmation for a month. It was not until a friend called to join our party and was told that I was not on the tea cruise. Had she not called to join our party, I would not have been notified. Someone dropped the ball on that one.
Not exactly what we expected, but we did enjoy the trip with the live music. No commentary on the sights we were passing, so take your map so you can identify sites on your own. Drinks after the 1st one were expensive but not out of line with prices in London.
the river cruise was great (once we got on board) the only word for that was chaotic.
The staff on the boat were friendly and polite. The "nibblers" were good.
The tour itself was fantastic.
Booking was easy via internet but on reaching 1 hour ahead to the gathering location at city cruise box at the Westminster pier was horrible I had to go 3 times to city cruise booth and each time explain the booking is valid as ling I have the e-booking reference... the staff there was of no help and kept sending me 3 times to Gate 2 to check if im in the booked list... I waited for 1 hour till the cruise came and I checked my e-ticket and was accepted... Emotionally I was stressed and I preferred not to do the e-booking and prefer to do it as walk-in.
The tour was great. I had some issues though with the company recognizing the viator voucher. None of the employees recognized it.
This trip is well worth doing, The day we joined was mid week the boat was late in so we were standing about for quite a long time and the process of getting on the boat a little disorganised everyone fighting to get on first. Having said that the team who run the boat were very good and look after everyone really well, it is worth doing and value for the cost.
Disapointing actually. I had expected some comments about the less well known buildings. Also, many of the Hor de'voirs were only presented towards the end of the cruise. Other than that I found it to be a very worthwhile tour.
Initial scrum for boarding could have been avoided but once on board it was very pleasant and the nibbles/canapes and glass of fizz were very good. Also witnessed Tower Bridge opening for a ship - amazingly speedy!!
There was really nothing to see on this cruise. The sights were dark and there was no narration. We did, however, enjoy the snacks and wine.
Although the sites were lovely, I was under the impression that this was a sightseeing tour cruise. It wasn't. It was a date night cruise - musicians, selling alcohol, romantic, etc. My sister and I felt out of place. Also, there was no commentary on what was being shown. We sailed one way, sailed the way back. We only got one glass of champagne and cold, partially thawed miniquiches and minibagels, and were encouraged to buy more. Had I known all these details, I would not have gone.
