  • "excellent experience"
     
     
     
     
     

    "Very nice sandwiches and pretty little cakes! Everything is delicious, and staff are friendly, walking around to offer tea and coffee all the time. The view from the top is fantastic. I'll definitely go again! "

  • "Afternoon tea on the river"
     
     
     
     
     

    "This is a firm favourite with our family and a lovely way to see London. I would definitely recommend this option over a standard cruise, where you seem to be packed in like sardines. On the afternoon tea cruise you have an allocated table, a great afternoon tea which you can make even more memorable with a glass of fizz and plenty of space for all. When you've had enough to eat you can go on the deck and get a better view of the sights without the crowds of the other boat tours. A must for a trip to London and I will be planning my fifth trip with the girls this time very soon!"

  • "Lovely experience"
     
     
     
     
     

    "This was the second activity that I booked through Discount London and again it was a brilliant trip. It was a little choppy on the river, however the boat was large and we hardly felt it once moving. The afternoon tea was lovely with plenty for each person and unlimited tea or coffee. You see most of the sights along the river in both directions. The staff on the boat were very friendly and ensured our comfort at all times. Would definitely recommend this cruise and booking with Discount London."

    "The Thames cruise with afternoon tea was absolutely fantastic. Everyone was so helpful and the food was delicious. The boat was amazing, with windows all around so you can get good views with a good commentary. My daughter absolutely loved it too. I am so glad I bought this and would go again. I thoroughly recommend this trip."

  • "Just Great!"
     
     
     
     
     

    "We had afternoon tea on the River Cruise, which was 2 great things combined, the Afternoon Tea was yummy and lovely and fresh, the cakes and sandwiches were all very nice, the service was great, and we were asked frequently if we wanted Tea or coffee. The actual tour was great yesterday you get to see all the great London sites, the only one thing I can say is you can't hear the commentary, mainly due to people enjoying their food / talking with friends. You can go up on top of the boat which we didn't realise at first but glad we found out in time to enjoy the fresh air and sights of London we got some great photos. We definitely recommend this trip, it was great."

    "My mother and sister boarded on time and had lovely views of the Thames on a bright and sunny October day. The tea and coffee was offered often and the array of sandwiches, lovely little cakes and light tasty scones was excellent. A truly enjoyable trip with very good commentary and after tea we went upstairs to view the sights in the open air. Altogether an excellent experience and we will be recommending this to our friends."

    "lovely relaxing way of seeing London from a different perspective. With some great photo opportunities. The afternoon tea was excellent as was the service onboard, and the commentary provided was very entertaining. Alcohol is also available to purchase as extra should you wish to have a glass or bottle of something special. No matter what the weather this trip is well worth it. "

Boat was clean and comfortable and the staff pleasant and efficient. We even had pimms too. Weather made it as well as the informative commentator. Got a fab price with discount London. Everyone was impressed and will definitely repeat the experience."

    "We had a great time on this trip along the Thames, and enjoyed an excellent afternoon tea with fresh scones and clotted cream, a good selection of sandwiches and a lovely selection of small cakes. There was ample to eat and endless top ups of teaor coffee - there was also the option to purchase bubbly and cocktails if you want to slash out! Great commentary along the way - we learned quite a lot about the way the river used to be utilised and the buildings along the banks. Great value for money and I would recommend it as a superb way to spend an afternoon whilst in London"

    "This was a special day for me, my 8oth birthday. I couldn't have chosen a better way to keep it. Crew and staff team were very helpful and well turned-out; they connived with the family at providing extras. The boat was great, as were the food and drink. An enlightening commentary and very comfortable cruise. Thank you."
