Extremely poor booking system and no service whatsoever
Booked as a special birthday treat for my wife, with our young family. Booking was made on-line and credit card charged, so assumed naively that the booking was secure. We planned the rest of our weekend around this (eg timed visit to the Shard), so was both surprised and disappointed to receive an email several days later telling us that the requested date was no longer available. We were only offered alternative dates on weekdays (no use in school term time). We complained and have been told we can get the money back on the card, but nothing else offered and feel overall massively let down. Bookings still appear to be open for the exact time and date we had ‘booked’. It may be good for those who get to go on it on - but my advice would be buyer beware!

A great cruise and excellent meal
Aug 2021
A delightful couple of hours spent cruising the river from Tower Pier. the trip included an excellent 2 course lunch served by friendly and very pleasant staff. The experience offered a different and unique view of many well-known landmarks. A commentary was provided and there was ample time to go onto the top deck and enjoy the open-air views from there. If in a party of 2, ask for a window table.

Go for it....A lovely experience.
Aug 2021 • Friends
We were somewhat apprehensive about a 'tourist' lunch as previous experiences if other such meals elsewhere have been somewhat of a letdown. HOWEVER.this time we enjoyed a very comfortable trip on the River in a very clean and modern boat. The 2 course meal was delicious. The ambiance on board as well as the professionalism and friendliness of the staff made for a lovely experience. Overall...definitely 10 out of 10.

Don’t bother
Aug 2021 • Couples
Food was very basic, it’s a bit like hospital food, waiting staff are not really interested in the job and look like they don’t want to be there apart from the end when they are holding a tray for tips. I would have given a tip had I got a service with a smile. Next time I would pay a little more and go with another company.
The seats are very uncomfortable as they are fold up seats like what you have in a cinema.
Personally I wouldn’t waste your money
as this is basic catering and not a restaurant style floating restaurant.
No menus for food they just throw the food in front of you. The staff never even asked us if we would like more drinks. No mustard, mayo or anything like that. Salt was empty too.
Reminds me of BA economy without the smile!!
