Wonderful cruise around the River Thames. The tea and food was delicious. The extra money spent for the window seat was worth it. Best views possible.

This was a great cruise, and a nice little treat for my wife's 30th. We booked the window seat and a glass of Champagne which we thought was good value for the extra 10 each. The food was lovely and there was a vast choice of tea's and coffee's. My pot of tea was refilled twice at no extra cost. The staff were very pleasant from the moment we checked in. They were incredibly welcoming and friendly and our waiter was great. I would definitely recommend!

The London Thames River Afternoon Tea Cruise was the highlight of our trip to London. Bateaux/London Catamaran Cruisers did an amazing job. The cruise was lovely and it gives you a totally different perspective of London. It was leisurely, clean and well done. As for the tea itself, it was delicious and well presented. White table cloths with spotless cutlery added to this delightful afternoon. The menu consisted of Smoked salmon, Wiltshire Ham, cucumber and dill and egg mayonnaise with cress, cut in small tea sandwiches, scones with Cornish Clotted cream and strawberry preserve and three small deserts, lemon meringue tart, dark chocolate mousse with marshmallow and carrot cake. A teapot for each table and it is replenished continuously, we had three pots!! There was a gentleman playing the piano which added to the wonderful atmosphere. The crew and staff were professional and friendly. We did the Premier Afternoon tea and crusise which gave us a glass of champagne and a reserved window seat. I highly recommend this afternoon of delight!

This was a great way to end our trip to London. Relaxing and the view from the river is fantastic to see the London skyline.

A highly enjoyable afternoon sailing down the Thames on the very posh boat Harmony. Everything about the trip was very professionally managed from the check-in on Embankment Pier and being seated on your table. The staff were both friendly and efficient, helping with all your requirements, taking photos for you etc. The food was plentiful and of an excellent standard, the scones in particular were very fresh and tasty. The afternoon was accompanied by a piano recital, again high quality. After eating it is nice to be able to go outside and onto the roof of the boat covered with artificial grass! for a breath of fresh air and to take more photos. Altogether a most enjoyable afternoon which we would heartily recommend.

Extremely nice, not touristy at all. Unlike some places they did not mind that I was a solo traveler and even gave me an extra glass of champagne for free. We were fortunate to have lovely weather and I saw London from a whole different angle have been here before but never down the river. One thing to note: there is no commentary telling you what you are looking at, so you'd do well to familiarize yourself with a map or guidebook before you get on the boat. I had a local person behind me who was describing all the buildings to his relatives so I had a little extra tour guide experience. It's still enjoyable though even if you're not aware you're passing one of the oldest pubs in London, an office building that once reflected light to set a car on fire in the street, etc.

This was by far my favorite part of my whole trip in London. Great staff. Lovely atmosphere. The tea and finger foods were delicious. My favorite were the scones. Mmm so good. Piano music was a wonderful background to float down the River Thames to. All in all must excellent fun.

I took my aunt on this as a welcome to UK - she was thrilled with the experience. Only wish it could have lasted longer - it was such a pleasant experience. The pianist was excellent.

This was a great lazy way to view some of our fantastic buildings in London, new and old, and have a really lovely afternoon cream tea. This was a perfect way to spend the afternoon before going to the Royal Albert Hall to see Swan Lake. I have told a friend and I will definitely be coming back with her.

I took my sister on this trip as a belated birthday g ift. We were impressed fight from the checking in at Embankment Pier. ALL the staff were courteous and friendly. The food served was lovely, especially the warm scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve. Very yummy! The view from our window-side table was wonderful. Seeing all that wonderful London architecture, both old and new, was most interesting. We are born and bred Londoners and absolutely proud of our great city. We have visited other big cities round the world but London is the best. We took the dress code very seriously and took great care with our outfits, although there were some on the boat who didn't embrace the sense of occasion. Such a pity. My sister said it was the best present I could have given her. We are thinking of booking the lunch cruise next , then the dinner cruise with our husbands. That's how much we enjoyed our trip. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make it a real 'English Afternoon Tea' complete with our lovely pianist who played for the whole trip.

Staff was very attentive and took note of our individual requests regarding strength of tea and vegetarian choices. Piano accompaniment was entertaining without being intrusive. Everything went very smoothly.

The tea and the cruise were lovely. Disappointed that we dressed for tea and many people did not. Were allowed on with shorts, jeans, sneakers etc. Everything we were told not to wear

This was a nice relaxing tour with snacks and drinks. Note that juice substitutes for tea/coffee are charged as extras on board. Note that there was no guide or audio guide. It's just a cruise down the Thames with very nice snacks. We were offered extras too. We did the upgrade with window table and champagne. Without this, you could just be on a boat cruise with snacks and not much of a view without getting up and walking around.

This is a lovely way to spend the afternoon and a nice way to view London. The food was quite good and the selection of teas great. The British couple next to us were wonderful to talk with. He had been given the cruise as an 80th birthday gift. We have great fun, and enjoyed meeting our new British friends!
