This was well run and a fun evening. It was our first night in London. The food was better than I would expect on this type of tour.

Much better than we expected. It was quite lively and superb service. Food was not the best, but in these dinner cruises, no one expects a gourmet dinner. The atmosphere and the view at night on the river was all worth it!

We went on this tour to try something different during our 4th visit in London. The cruise in the evening was beautiful, seeing London lit up from the Thames. Food and service was excellent and enjoyed our evening dancing to popular songs and admiring the view from the boat deck.

This 3 hour River Thames Dinner cruise was excellent and filled with free flow of wines, food , live music and dance! Only thing which we got embarassed was with the main entry road to Cruise bay was so filthy and stinky with people urinating at public road ! How come London city becomes like this at Tourist spots?

It’s my mom and friends first experience to be in London and they all had a blast. One of my friend felt so special when the lady (Sorry I forgot her name) sang a song for her and everybody greeted her. My mom who’ 83 years old got on her feet and danced. Food is awesome and staffs are great. I definitely would recommend this tour. Thank you.

My wife and I had a wonderful, romantic evening. The food was good. The service was really great. The singer was great. And the views of the famous London landmarks from the river at sunset were spectacular. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

We really enjoyed it a lot. The food was great and they gave us a bottle of wine for just the 2 of us. The singer was good and she was fun also. The trip down the river was nice to see the buildings in the daylight but on the way back when they were all lit up was beautiful.

Had a brilliant evening. The whole experience was well planned, the meal was excellent and the singer (Jackie) was professional and had an amazing voice. Lovely evening all round.

The food was good, service was fast, the view is amazing. My only issue is that the singer only really performed for a total of maybe 45-60 mins during the tour, maybe 15 mins at the beginning and then at the end. And towards the end, she played songs from her soundtrack. I think it would be nice to have a variety of songs as she played older music (my fiance and I are in our early 30s). Also, there's a lot of time spent with her figuring out what to play next or promoting her other gigs outside the dinner cruise. We would've love to have more time dancing and singing along. Three stars for our experience, could've been 5 stars, if performer is more engaging.
