What You Can Expect

Thames Lunch Cruise with 2-Course Meal

Enjoy seeing the attractions of London while cruising down the Thames River

Step aboard your sightseeing cruise boat at Tower Pier on the north bank of the Thames River, central London. Settle into a seat at your window-side table, and gaze out at the city sights as you start cruising west into the heart of London.

Following a round-trip route to Westminster, your cruise takes in several top London attractions and landmark sights. As you pass the imposing Tower of London, framed by the slick buildings of the city’s Square Mile, look south to see a gaggle of the capital’s big-name sights. Gaze out at the Shard — Western Europe’s tallest building — and watch the hustle and bustle taking place around County Hall and the vibrant South Bank.

Tear your eyes away from South Bank's hive of activity for further sights such as Shakespeare’s Globe, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. As you cruise, a delicious 2-course meal of traditional British fare is served by your onboard staff. Drinks are not included, but the boat’s bar boasts a large selection of wine, beer and non-alcoholic options. Simply make your way over and purchase drinks at your own expense.

After 1.5 hours on the Thames River, hop back onto dry land back at Tower Pier where your cruise ends.

Sample Menu (subject to change at any time):
Main course (choice of one; both served with dauphinoise potato and seasonal vegetables ):
  • Thyme, Rosemary and lemon roasted chicken with creamy leek, served with tarragon and mushroom sauce
  • Vegetarian option: baked field mushroom filled with artichokes, asparagus and creme fraiche wrapped in lattice pastry
  • Dark, white and milk chocolate truffle cake with raspberry sauce

Tea or coffee

This tour was awesome...the only bad thing was Viator failed to submit our names to the tour company. Thankfully I had a screenshot of the receipt and the tour had no shows so we were able to embark on the cruise. The food was awesome and the scenery was great!

The guide was funny and very knowledgable. I did this tour my first day, and it was a great way to jump into London. The lunch itself was excellent, and the staff were all very attentive. I definitely recommend this tour.

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2014

The cruise itself was enjoyable. Host was rude. He had us sit at a table while he sat the other guests because my sister was in a wheelchair.
