Briliant food and fantastic views. Such a fantastic cruise - perfect weather and the top deck has amazing views of London. Food and drink was brilliant although staff could be more attentive. We did have to wait a while and re-ask a member for staff for our teapot of tea, but once it arrived it was lovely.
London River Thames Afternoon Tea Cruise Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, weather was fantastic which helped. However it was good to see lots of different sites in London from the water and was pleasantly surprised at the variety of food offered. Excellent cruise.
afternoon tea Overall an excellent afternoon in London.
The quality of the sandwiches and in particular the cakes was superb.
We will certainly be looking to rebook for another trip.
An excellent trip A wonderful trip, very fresh sandwiches, extra if wanted, warm scones, lovely choice of cakes. A bit disappointed in the service, we seemed to have a waiter that did not understand English very much and when asked what were the flavours of the fruit teas said that they did not serve any, but it was listed on the menu and if fact they did serve them. Otherwise a very pleasant cruise and food. Loved the fact that when we docked we did not have to immediately disembark.
Absolutely Amazing I Spent the afternoon with my parents and my husband, we loved each second, delicious sandwich and cakes. Everything impeccable. Super recommend
excellent afternoon Had a lovely time, food and service was excellent.
Bateaux London River Thames Afternoon Tea Cruise We thoroughly enjoyed our river cruise, the staff were very pleasant and professional. Being serenaded by the pianist as we ate delicious food made it all the more enjoyable.

From the minute you arrived at Bateaux on the Embankment it was just a lovely experience. the welcome, food, service, ambience, attention to detail and such value for money. We are now planning on booking the Sunday afternoon Jazz lunch in September.

Marilyn's 70th Birthday Celebration Well what can I say except all nine of us were escorted to our table, a large round table, which was situated in a private room on board The Harmony with our own waiter who was very helpful as were the other waiters. Nothing was too much trouble for them to assist in what we required. The commentary was very clear and the food was great. That coupled with very good weather made it a very memorable day for all my family but especially for my wife's 70th Birthday with all her family around her. Thank you to one and all for making the day so special.
Bateaux London River Thames Harmony Lunch Cruise This was a celebration for an 80th Birthday and what a fantastic well organised event to choose. Have used the Bateaux London River Cruise before and thoroughly enjoyed it then and was dubious about booking again but no problems. Food is excellent, service excellent, organisation from start to finish excellent. Cannot praise the Bateaux of London Cruises enough. Well done to all and made a really enjoyable Birthday surprise worthwhile. Thanks and keep up the good work.....
Excellent value we were four old friends and decided a lunch cruise on the Thames might a very good idea.
I am so glad we booked. We had a lovely lunch. The service was great and very friendly. There was room to move about and take photos and the organisation was second to none.
The food was tasty and we all appreciated the linen table cloths and napkins, we had expected it to be much more basic.
Getting the 10% off from discount London paid towards our drinks. Tea and coffee was included in the price.
I am going with different friends soon for the afternoon tea cruise.
I am already recommending it to family and friends.
Excellent Service Upon purchasing the tickets for the Bateaux London River Thames Harmony Lunch Cruise, I thought they were a bit expensive as I'd done it with my daughter about 4 years ago and it wasn't that dear.
It was only when we got on board that I realised our previous booking was with another company and that this involved "proper" sit down lunch menus and atmosphere, “not lunch in a bag”
Due to an ailment, we arrived at the pier late, which meant we missed our boat out to lunch, obviously there was a 12 year old sad face staring back at me and another two sadder 9 year old faces. But the staff were very reassuring and assured us that they would try their best to accommodate us, luckily seats became available, so we were able to board the SYMPHONY and were warmly greeted by the staff and our very own personal waiter Tom, who looked after us all through the cruise - he was very efficient and was brilliant with my 9 year old twins.
Now to the food, it was delicious and very beautifully presented, from the starter -Salmon Roulade and Main which was Chicken with thyme jus as for the Dessert, we found it a bit too sweet.
It's a great way to learn about the iconic buildings & events scattered around the Thames.
Would we go back again? Definitely, even my daughter -who suffers from sea sickness -enjoyed it and my somewhat sceptic spouse gave it a thumbs up.
It was money well spent :-)
Harmony lunch cruise I booked this cruise for my wifes birthday it was great we took some friends they also thought it was brilliant the food was excellent and the staff very welcoming and friendly looking to book this again for next year a big thanks to all involved
Lunch Cruise on The Harmony We as a family of 5 had an excellent experience.
The whole process was easy and efficient.
The staff throughout the cruise were helpful, kind, understanding and very professional.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to all friends & family.
Thank you all very much for a great time.
Relaxing A lovely relaxing time had by all and the amazing weather added to the whole experience by allowing us to relax and enjoy the scenery on the top deck. The only disappointing bit was the very limited commentary, which I don't think was working properly.
Harmony lunch cruise Panoramic views from the boat and beautiful terrace at the top to view the sights of London. Very pleasant and helpful waitresses and the food was very good. We were a party of six with 4 members who were visiting from abroad. It was a wonderful and stylish way to view London especially if you are not up for a lot of walking.
Would happily repeat the trip.
