Very good time and great food. Was not crazy about the service but still giving 5 stars as it wasn't bad just not great. Food was so good and then we were able to dance afterwards. The views on the river were amazing. Go on it you will have a great time!
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening on the Thames. The restaurant was set up with plenty of room for privacy and comfort, the food was excellent, and the music was a bonus. The whole trip was relaxed and enjoyable. It is not a traditional tour in that there was nobody on a microphone pointing out the sights, but as you quietly motored past landmarks, the views were amazing. Our only issue was that it was quite dark by the end of the cruise, and while we enjoyed seeing the lights of London, we would have preferred a slightly earlier dinner and cruise. If you do not mind disembarking in the dark, it is not an issue. Be sure to dress up a bit-it was obviously a popular date night outing, and most folks were dressed very nicely. I was comfortable in dress pants and a nice blouse, my husband was in dress pants and a collared shirt, which was fine, but many of the men were in suits and the women were in dresses. I wouldn't suggest being too informal as in jeans and trainers.
Didn't care of the food at all - left hungry. Should have given us options. No communication: such as go upstairs for the view, no one to tell us what buildings and landmarks we were passing. We enjoyed the view at night time but not sure we correctly identified everything that we passed.- more like a guessing game. A map would have been nice.
Loved loved this dinner cruise, food was on point the free wine and dessert where fantastic! We had a great waitress from Poland, forgot her name but we had some awesome conversations also got the chance to meet the manager beastress she was great she cares for her staff and it shows!! Recommend!!!
Overpriced and disappointing. The amount of food was disgraceful for the price paid. There was meant to be entertainment for the evening and i sincerely thought we'd be able to have a dance...well. i would have paid the woman to stop singing!!!!
I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was much better than expected, and the river ride was longer than I expected. The best thing I have to say is that because of the power outage at the Atlanta airport, we missed our flight, and therefore, missed this tour. Since it was past the time where I could cancel and get a refund, I thought my money was forfeit. I emailed them to try and rebook for later in the week and they did! So I was delighted. I should add that they did not email me back, so unless I had called, I would not have know about the rebooking. Persistence pays.
