  • "Sunny afternoon on the Thames"

    "Lovely afternoon eating fresh sandwiches, scones and mini cakes with as much tea or coffee as you could drink but we decided to purchase a bottle of bubbly at a very reasonable price instead. Service was excellent and staff friendly. We spent our final half hour on the top deck in the sunshine listening to the Captains amusing banter."

  • "Well done City Cruises !!"

    "First class service and freshly made tempting food. The never ending tea and coffee pots were much appreciated. We have been to London many times but the commentator managed to pick out many facts about the places which we passed which we did not know about before BUT unfortunately his voice tended to tail off at the end of each sentence which made it hard to catch all his words above the clatter of pottery and the inevitable buzz of conversations. A very minor, but irritating problem on what was otherwise an A1 afternoon. Thank you City cruises and your helpful and courteous staff."

  • "A must in London!"

    "I booked this for my wifes birthday on Mothers Day! What a great trip. Service very good and very friendly staff. Regular top ups of tea. Plenty of food sandwiches,scones and choccy nibbles all of very good standard i would highly recommend this to anyone. Very good value for what is charged. Also the commentary was very humorous. Nice to hear a live commentary than pre recorded. This i think was maybe a one off due to Mothers Day! "

    "The team of staff and managers who make this happen are amazing. The quality of the food and drink and the constant smiles on the faces of staff made the cruise so good! We would definitely go again... especially because of the extra sandwiches that I was given as I asked for more than I had payed for... Excellent!"

  • "Fantastic!!"

    "The Afternoon Tea on the 8th November was fantastic, I had arrange this as a gift for my mothers 50th birthday and it certainly did not disappoint. The afternoon tea itself was great, sandwiches were delicious and mini cakes were just fantastic. There was clearly no expense spared. The timing was perfect, during our trip it started to get dark and all the lights started to appear. I would just like to say thank you very much for making my mum's birthday gift such a joy! We will definitely be using Discount London again!"

  • "Afternoon tea on the Thames"

    "It was my 40th birthday & I decided to book this for 10 of my family, no children just adults. The boat was very clean & the service was 5 star. You could tell it was my birthday by all the balloons that was attached to me & the glittery hat. The staff were so happy to have pictures taken with me & they took the cake I brought aboard & put my candles on. They brought it out & got everyone singing! As you are eating the yummy cakes, you are informed of the sites that you are going past. I would highly recommend this. "
