Your luncheon cruise sets off from Tower Pier in central London at midday. Make your own way to the pier with plenty of time to board the boat and find your seat in the cozy, indoor saloon. Sit back and enjoy panoramic views of the city shoreline as your 1.5-hour cruise begins.

Heading west from Tower Pier, you’ll first pass the formidable Tower of London, situated in the modern Square Mile, followed by The Shard. Also, know at The Shard of Glass, this 95-story pyramid dominates the South Bank skyline. Continue on to Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a historic active theater, and the enormous London Eye. Along the South Bank, witness the bustle of performers, locals and meandering tourists. Your cruise loops at Westminster, where you’ll get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben before turning around.

As you cruise, indulge in a sumptuous 2-course meal featuring an entree and dessert with coffee and tea. For an added treat, purchase wine, beer or other non-alcoholic beverages from the onboard bar. After lunch, get some air on the outside deck as your river cruise returns to Tower Pier. You'll arrive with plenty of time to continue sightseeing (and walk off your hearty meal)!

What a fabulous Thames Lunch Cruise. From the easy online reservation to the welcome we received boarding the boat. Once onboard we were assigned a table and because I had a dietary request, they made sure to confirm with me and then when the food came, I couldn't believe they I got what I asked for and the food was delicious. We saw so many sights going one way and then the other side when we came back. The crew and servers were so nice and very helpful. If you wanted an alcoholic drive, additional, cost, they had a full bar. I can't tell you how awesome this cruise was from the start to end. Thanks for letting me see all the amazing architecture and historical sights while enjoying a tasty meal. Highly recommend this and will do it again.

The lunch cruise was a pleasant way to see some of the magnificent sites of London. We booked our trip the day prior, which meant our seat location was in the middle of the boat. So I would suggest you would probably get a better seat the earlier you book. That being said, our seat still gave a lovely view, and you could walk to the front of the vessel to take photos, or go on the deck upstairs. The food was very nice and a good experience overall.

Great food and a lovely cruise. A different way to experience London. Great photo opportunities on this 2 hour cruise. We really enjoyed it.

My only suggestion, soft music with the meal versus listening to the clanking of people's dishes or other tables conversations since seated so close.

My favorite Parisian tour. Great food, lovely cruise and a definite highlight for us

The best, however, more clarification on where this pier is. Our taxi driver took us to one pier and when he said down under we didn't realize that we had to take the tube to another pier. We literally had to run and if you were not able to you would have missed the boat. Got there with only a few minutes to spare. BUT the meal, the service, the servers and the views were great. Highly recommend.

We did this tour last Saturday. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Lovely lunch, very good service and it was lovely to see London from the river. We were lucky with the weather too - bright and sunny albeit cold, but the inside of the boat is very comfortable and warm. Good value for money too.

Having read previous reviews saying how good a trip this is we guessed it was only a trip up the Thames but having our son and his wife over from Canada we booked.A great trip with good food exellent coffee and we particularly enjoyed the captain's witty commentary after lunch.
