3rd October Afternoon Tea on the Thames Liz & Frank, 05/10/2020 (Senior Adults)We thought the river cruise and afternoon tea was a wonderful afternoon out. The windows provided excellent views of the Thames and the tea was very good. Also found the commentary interesting and informative. Thank you for a most enjoyable afternoon.
Superb Rob Jen, 08/09/2020 (Senior Adults)Lovely afternoon cream tea cruise on the Thames, the staff onboard were spoiling us rotten, and kept refilling our coffee/tea cups, the cakes, and scones were delicious. A birthday treat for my wife, who was most impressed. Tables were well separated to avoid any risks. Would love to return for an evening cruise when things get back to normal. Well done City Cruises.
Unforgettable experience Sinead, 24/08/2020 (Young Adults)Amazing experience! Luckily was moved to a table by the window. Very well distanced from others to follow covid guidelines. Food was good - catered to halal which was a nice surprise. Very good and attentive service. Overall a wonderful experience and would happily go again.
Tea on the Thames Denise, 18/02/2020 (Mature Adults)Enjoyed our trip on the Afternoon Tea boat to celebrate my 50th. The staff were great, really friendly and chatty. Copious amounts of tea and coffee were served. Scones were freshly made, sandwiches were fine. It was the weekend of Storm Dennis and the weather was foul, but everyone was cheery and they kept wiping the windows as they steamed up!
Recommend, thanks City Cruises
Lovely food, service & sight seeing debstar, 10/02/2020 (Mature Adults)I booked this to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday and we really enjoyed the food & the trip. I requested some dietry requirements for the sandwiches for 1 perons booked in the party and this was accommodated as per my request. Would recommend this experience on this cruise.
Great way to celebrate. Emma, 14/01/2020 (Family with adult children)Booked this excursion for a 19th and 2 x 21st birthdays. Excellent value for money as well as being a really enjoyable experience. Staff were exceptional, food was plentiful and delicious and boat ride smooth with plenty to see. Very comfortable and clean surroundings. Would definitely recommend this as a must do when in the capital. Only one minor observation and that is that while the tea and coffee are plentiful, there is no included provision for those that don't like hot drinks. However, there is an on board drinks menu but it is slightly limited.
