    A last minute booking for a lunch cruise but much better than we expected. The food was excellent served with a capable and friendly service. Didn’t expect the tour guide commentary along the Thames but it was delivered well, interesting without taking up too much of the 2 hrs cruise time.

    Had a really enjoyable trip. The food was very good. Tasty, well presented and good portion size. Found all the staff very helpful and attentive. My only negative comment was in respect of the boat. It was an extremely hot day and the air conditioning wasn’t effective and there were no fans.

    The food was lovely and filling. The waiting staff would very friendly and helpful! I liked that the tour guide was done on the bait by the crew rather than a recording, was comical. We had a bottle of Prosecco, and the waiting staff again paid attention to when we needed a top up! The weather was lovely, and I loved sitting on the top of the boat whilst people were still eating and drinking it was so peaceful! Also if you suffer sea sickness like we do, the boat is absolutely fine, we didn't feel ill. Seats were comfy and the toilets were immaculate!
