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.

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.

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.

It was a very nice and valuable cruise. They were punctual, pleasant, professional, and organized. The food was excellent, the service of the waiters and waitresses was outstanding, the show was greatly amusing, conducted by a very talented girl singing and making everyone have a beautiful evening. We started the voyage with daylight, and on the way back it was already nighttime which changed the whole image of London with all the lights on making it an incredibly sensational view of this unique city. We very highly recommend this tour, it's worth every penny!

This must be the best value trip in London, we arrived at Westminster Pier to be greeted by a staff member called Lilly who answered all our questions about the tour in a very professional manner. The boat arrived at the quay side and we were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine and shown to our table by the most polite and friendly staff. As this was an evening dinner cruise we were treated to the most splendid sights you could view of all the lit up attractions in London from the Houses of Parliament to the O2 Arena including the magnificent Canary Wharf. The 4 course meal which included a bottle of wine was very tasty and the waiters were excellent. Throughout the 3 1/2 hour trip we were entertained by a wonderful singer who was able to point out most of the major sights between her songs all in all a memorable occasion
