    Boat was in very good condition and staff was very pleasant. Ambience was realxing.The lunch was delicious and good portions. I had the house rose wine which was quite good. The commentary was adequate- a little map would helped more. I thought it was good value for the spend and would definitely recommend as a good introduction to the sites of Central London.

    Staff were all very friendly and welcoming, from the moment we boarded. The service was quick and efficient, and the food was lovely and well presented. All timed perfectly from start to finish, and even leaving time to go up on top of boat to view more of the sights, before heading back to the drop off point.

    Only issue that we had was the commentary was very poor, could barely hear the the small and incomplete amount of commentary, as it was pre recorded.. but when they wanted us to return to our table to pay our bar bill that announcement was surprisingly loud and very clear. ‍♀️Just saying
