"Lovely afternoon out"

Great afternoon tea experience. Easy booking procedure on the phone after activation of voucher. Lovely afternoon tea, and great boat trip with brilliant commentary on the boat up the Thames with lots of information about the sights. Polite staff as well and all tables and chairs been moved to a good distance from each other. Opportunity to sit on the deck for the 2nd half of the journey. Highly recommended.

"A very enjoyable experience!"

A warm welcome from the crew. Great seating and an excellent view from the boat. All staff were very pleasant. Food was served in a timely manner and we were offered many refills of tea or coffee. Food was tasty and plentiful. Views of London from the boat were excellent. Highly recommended!

"Absolutely delightful!"

We were here from the States on our honeymoon and, despite the cold & rainy weather outside, the cruise was delightful from start to finish. (The sun did eventually come out.) The crew and staff were attentive and friendly and the tea was lovely. I'd recommend the experience to anyone. Thank you!
