Overall the trip was amazing...the distance covered on the cruise really puts you in front of several iconic pieces of architecture all over London, and the ride was very smooth. Food and drinks were excellent as well, and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely make this trip again!

I enjoyed the beautiful views and the delicious foods. The service was great. The loudspeakers could have been a little louder to hear better, otherwise attn enjoyable ride.

My brother and I really enjoyed this afternoon tea cruise. We made it on time to the cruise and the staff were very helpful and welcoming at the pier and on the boat as well. The afternoon tea/coffee, sandwiches, scones, and sweets were all tasty! The views from the boat were also lovely. I would highly recommend this for anyone with a free afternoon in London!

I was traveling alone, and was crunched for time as I was here for work. You get to indulge in some sandwiches, sweets, coffee/tea. You can see most sights from the inside of the boat, but I scarfed down some food, drank some coffee, and headed up to the main deck outside for better view of the sights. I was able to snap some great shots of the Tower Bridge, London Eye, and Big Ben. Straightforward tour.

It's a very nice cruise to take if you want just a laid back and have tea in a boat. Very nice service.

This was a lovely afternoon Tea on the Thames. Food was very good and plentiful. No fault of the tour operator, but the rain and condensation inside made it hard to see out the windows for the view.

Because this is billed as a "sightseeing cruise", I somehow expected a bit of expert commentary to accompany the "cruise" - maybe a little of London history, buildings along the Thames, what bridge we were passing under etc. It would have been nice to know what we were looking at. The food was decent, although our server was a bit rude and impatient. But because I was expecting a little more, after the first pass up the river, I found the cruise a bit boring and hum drum.
