Outstanding tour - Lovely setting for a dinner cruise, professional and friendly staff, great meal / good wine, engaging entertainment. The view of London at night from the Thames is incredible. The pier location is adjacent to the Underground, making transportation to and from the departure pier super easy and safe.

We had just arrived in London and were meeting my son and grandchildren from USA the next day, so, since this day was also our 9th anniversary, we chose to celebrate in style. We met a very nice couple from Louth, Lincs, and shared a table with them. The meal and wine were excellent, couldn't fault it in any way, and the music and singer, Graham was also excellent. Dancing more than slowly was a bit dodgy on the boat, but that didn't matter. It was a great way to spend our anniversary and one we will never forget.

Cruising down the Thames was nice and since it was June, still daylight late into the evening so had great scenery and fabulous sunset pictures. The food was good and service very nice. The singer was ok.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

We loved this tour! The company responded to our request for a window seat, being that it was mu husband's birthday. Great to see the London Thames-side buildings during daylight and then from dusk to dark. The food was good, in our opinion, although the main course was not quite as hot as you would have in a restaurant. The lady who sang was excellent.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

The dinner was delicious, and the entertainer was excellent. The scenery was spectacular on a very clear night on the Thames. This was a highlight of our 3 weeks in the UK.
