    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.

    We loved our afternoon tea cruise! We had wanted to try an afternoon tea on our trip, but felt like sitting in a restaurant for a few hours would be a waste of time when there was so much of the city we wanted to see. This cruise gave us the option of having an afternoon tea while getting some great views of the city! Would highly recommend.

    ★★

    When we went on the cruise the temperature was 32C°. Although there were ACs running in the middle of the room, they did nothing at all for the passengers sitting under the the glass roof. It was unbearably hot and we couldn't even touch the walls without fear of burning our skin. One might say, that weather conditions like these are one in a million for London, but keep in mind, that climate change will bring more and more of those hot summers. I recommend, that you install some sort of roman blinds or at least put some reflective foil or something on the windows. In addition to being almost roasted, I was very uncomfortable in my seat. I am mildly obese and I really wish, I could have moved the chair or the table just a little bit. But since it's all fixed, I had to sit with the table edge constantly pushing into my stomach, which left a rash.

    About the service, we can't complain at all. The staff was friendly and tried their best to make the cruise pleasant- no problem there. Also the food was very nice- we enjoyed it very much.

    All in all we'd recommend this cruise under two conditions:

    - You're not overweight

    - The temperature is around 25C° or below

The commentary was informative and interesting. And I feel the price is right. If you are looking to "kill two birds with one stone" (enjoy a "typical English" custom while enjoying a river cruise on the Thames) then I definitely recommend this! One of the highlights of my trip to London! Cheers!

    We loved our afternoon tea cruise! We had wanted to try an afternoon tea on our trip, but felt like sitting in a restaurant for a few hours would be a waste of time when there was so much of the city we wanted to see. This cruise gave us the option of having an afternoon tea while getting some great views of the city! Would highly recommend.

    I ordered vegetarian and had egg sandwhiches which were ok. Cakes were cute but not really my thing. The scones were totally stale and not edible. Shame as that's my fav

    When we went on the cruise the temperature was 32C°. Although there were ACs running in the middle of the room, they did nothing at all for the passengers sitting under the the glass roof. It was unbearably hot and we couldn't even touch the walls without fear of burning our skin. One might say, that weather conditions like these are one in a million for London, but keep in mind, that climate change will bring more and more of those hot summers. I recommend, that you install some sort of roman blinds or at least put some reflective foil or something on the windows. In addition to being almost roasted, I was very uncomfortable in my seat. I am mildly obese and I really wish, I could have moved the chair or the table just a little bit. But since it's all fixed, I had to sit with the table edge constantly pushing into my stomach, which left a rash.

    About the service, we can't complain at all. The staff was friendly and tried their best to make the cruise pleasant- no problem there. Also the food was very nice- we enjoyed it very much.

    All in all we'd recommend this cruise under two conditions:

    - You're not overweight

    - The temperature is around 25C° or below

    Just said that you need individual pots of tea/coffee on each table as not everyone likes the same strength.

    I absolutely loved the "Afternoon Tea" river cruise with City Cruises! Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. Unlimited coffee/tea! The commentary was informative and interesting. And I feel the price is right. If you are looking to "kill two birds with one stone" (enjoy a "typical English" custom while enjoying a river cruise on the Thames) then I definitely recommend this! One of the highlights of my trip to London! Cheers!

    Jag fick inget mejl på beställningen trots att de stog att man skulle få det. Hade gillat bättre om det var två uppsättningar med likadana mackor.

    Le otorgo 4 estrellas pero lamentablemente no hemos utilizado el servicio, habían cerrado algunos tramos del metro y no llegamos a horario, así fue que nos ofrecieron la recorrida común. La empresa fue muy amable con esta atención.

    We LOVED this cruise. My 5 year old said it was his favorite part of our whole trip to London! The cruise was just long enough to have tea and see the river view of London. They gave us so much food that we couldn't finish it and still weren't hungry for dinner! We just really enjoyed the whole experience. Probably the best money we spent, I can't recommend it enough!

    One of the large windows at the front of the boat was frosted over and spoilt the view. This should be attended to as a priority, it gave the boat a poor image of not being maintained properly.

    My Mum enjoyed the boat trip, we were celebrating her 60th, but we felt the tea wasn't value for money. Both the quality and quantity of the food could be improved
