The boat was nice and clean. The crew were lovely. The food was okay. No selection and very heavy plate of chicken potatoes and veggies for lunch. No choices for kids offered and drinks were extra. Audio tour could not be heard barely at all. Overall nice experience but I wouldn’t do this again.

Nice day out. The food was delicious. I went with the 2 course meal, which is lunch and dessert. No starters available if you wanted to top up. Route is: Tower Hill > Westminster > Canary Wharf and back. The itinerary should be available online and it should be shared when boarding. Commentary was not clear as que quality of the eletronic speaker was not the best. You can also pop out to the deck and see the views. Very nice indeed but there is space for improvement.

We had a wonderful time on our river cruise with lunch. The staff were very attentive and well trained. The commentary on the history as we went down the river was also very good and witty. Our experience couldn’t have been nicer. Very much enjoyed by all our party.
