    Great day out with two friends and yummy cream tea, fantastic afternoon had by all.


    30 Jan 2018

    For afternoon 'TEA' there was only two options for tea - breakfast or green tea. We were only given one scone each and the cakes were all pathetically small. The sandwiches were nothing special. For that much money I was expecting better quality and quantity.


    30 Jan 2018

    ★★★★

    We enjoyed the cruise but we’re a little surprised that there were not enough sandwiches. There were four of us but only three people had four quarters (which is only one sandwich) and the fourth person only had three quarters. When we pointed this out we were told they only provide a selection and not a set amount. However we were promptly and courteously offered more.


  • 30 Jan 2018

    The afternoon tea was tasty and plenty to eat. a shame there was no commentary available. I know London fairly but there were areas where I was less familiar.

    Brilliant! Well organised operation. The food was really good. We paid extra for a window seat - definitely worth the extra £2! We also enjoyed some prosecco with the afternoon tea which made it even more special. The staff were friendly, efficient, and came round offering extra tea and coffee throughout the journey. Excellent scones and cakes, and the sandwiches were very good too. Very good value all round, and a very enjoyable experience. I'd read some previous reviews which said the food wasn't good but my experience was the opposite! No soggy sandwiches here. Everything was freshly prepared and well presented. My only suggestion would be that the duration is an extra half hour! It went too quickly 😊

    The afternoon tea was lovely however the sandwich fillings were quite fancy which was fine for the adults however my 10 year old would have preferred something a bit more plain - perhaps if the sandwich choice was online you could request what you wanted, although I know this is not always guaranteed. All 3 of our scones were fruit, perhaps a mix of those would be good too. Overall this was a great experience and I would do it again :)

    The whole afternoon tea experience seemed very rushed. As soon as they brought the food around (which took some time), they just as quickly came around to collect it. The river tour also seemed strange as it went from Tower Pier, almost up to Canary Warf, and then back to the London Eye. Never even going passed Parliament. If seeing the city is your main objective, I may suggest a different tour.

    I have already commented, above, on afternoon tea. It wasn't clear that there were two different reply sections.

    This was a birthday gift so I don't know what the price was but I would rate it as a good experience.

    The afternoon tea was lovely however the sandwich fillings were quite fancy which was fine for the adults however my 10 year old would have preferred something a bit more plain - perhaps if the sandwich choice was online you could request what you wanted, although I know this is not always guaranteed. All 3 of our scones were fruit, perhaps a mix of those would be good too. Overall this was a great experience and I would do it again :)

    The tea service was only average. There was no selection of teas, only tea or coffee. Also, the sandwiches just didn't taste that great.

    The whole afternoon tea experience seemed very rushed. As soon as they brought the food around (which took some time), they just as quickly came around to collect it. The river tour also seemed strange as it went from Tower Pier, almost up to Canary Warf, and then back to the London Eye. Never even going passed Parliament. If seeing the city is your main objective, I may suggest a different tour.
