LONDON'S No1 EVENING CRUISE ON THE THAMES

Sail off into the sunset while the rest of the world goes by. That's the fun of an evening cruise on the Thames!

On the Sundowner, a Thames evening cruise, you will see great views of London's riverside landmarks and enjoy the unique atmosphere of a trip through the heart of central London – on a boat.

And that’s not all. As you board a waiter will give you a welcome glass of fizz. A live musician plays contemporary music, pop, rock, swing and funky.

You can choose between being on the open-air upstairs deck or in the saloon, which has big windows.
There's space to unwind and circulate, nibble a canapé or maybe visit the fully stocked bar that offers a variety of drinks (soft and otherwise), including Pimms, gin, tonic and more.

Sundowner’s summertime schedule is launching now – so if you travel on Mondays and Tuesdays then your welcome glass can be fizz or a gin and tonic, depending on preference.

Your ticket includes:

  • Sparkling wine on arrival
    • Or if you travel on Mondays and Tuesdays in late June and early July you can choose whether your welcome glass is fizz or a gin and tonic
  • Canapés
  • Live music performer
  • 2 hour river Cruise

Evening Cruise

    A great experience at an excellent price. Champagne, canapes, beautiful music, and wonderful views from a river cruise on the Thames. A perfect evening for our 40th wedding anniversary.

    I thought it was a complete waste of money. £32 pounds for a lap up and down and the thames. Little amount of food, was hungry the whole time. Drinks were expensive. Would ask for a refund if possible.

    Bizarrely disorganized; even though the crew had a complete listing of all passengers expected, they were short about a dozen seats, so lots of us had to stand for the whole cruise. Also, the setup is inherently flawed; this is supposed to be a sightseeing cruise but the seats were set up facing inward, away from the windows. The total effect was low-class and amateurish. Sorry! We made the best of the evening, but it was just very poor performance. The crew seemed well-intentioned.

    ★★

    The boat was late but I appreciate that can happen. When the first round of canapes arrived we were the last to be served and there was only 2 left and they did not look too good. The young lady said that she would serve us first next time round. The second time we were served first but there was obviously only enough for one canape per person still. Windows were dirty so visibility poor. It started to rain so everyone from the upper deck ascended below where there was limited space. Music ok. On disembarking a young lady was trying to off load a load of left over canapes which I am sure could have been offered earlier to give everyone a larger choice. We paid about £46 for 2 people which was not good value for money when you can get on average a lunch cruise with a bottle of wine for around £84 for 2 people with excellent service on board. Thank you.

    A Sundowner Cruise at the end of May that had no sun. In fact, it rained and London's skies were as grey as could be but we sat on the top deck until we got too cold and then sat downstairs to warm up. The staff were lovely, the canapes were plentiful and we really enjoyed it. So much so, we are thinking of doing one of their dinner cruises next time. Maybe in the sunshine!!

    Price of drinks are overpriced, canopes consisted of 3 small pieces and all fish. Very disappointing as this was for our wedding anniversary!


    1 year ago

    ★★

    This sundowner cruise was actually quite disappointing. My Mum and Dad came up to see us as a belated mothers day gift.

    The boat used was tiny and had horrible conference like chairs plonked around the edge of the boat with random tables in front. It was very warm and cramped in. I think we managed to get 2 canopes each as most where fish which we didnt like. So we where hungry, cramped in and boiling hot.

    The Jazz performer spent around 45 minutes of the 2 hour cruise eating or drinking. He must have had most of the food that was for the customers! He didnt interact with the crowd at all and look extremely scruffy!

    All in all I was very upset having spent my money on four tickets :o(

    Hopefully you will take my comments seriously for future events.

    1) tidy up the boat and have uniformed decor!

    2) employ a better performer who speaks to people and creates a nice atmosphere

    3) Control the heating properly with a thermostat or aircon.

    4) Ensure you have a greater selection of canapes.

    5) Serve a nice taste Processco, maybe Asti. It was terrible.

    6) Do not over crowd the boat, use a bigger one if there is too many people booked in. It shouldnt always be about profit.



    Thank you

    Beautiful evening on Thames on a nice boat. Up on deck was quite crowded initially forcing staff to bring up some extra seats. Insufficient staff (2) serving drinks/canapés during the trip. Plastic glasses should be considered as three glasses were broken, causing 1 of the 2 staff to stop serving and clear up broken glass. A demanding group at front of boat meant that we were never offered a drink from the bar, I had to stop a waiter on his way down the stairs and we were offered the leftovers of the canapés from the front of the boat. But a lovely evening and the sax player was good.

    enjoyed cruise, staff pleasant, we felt that although the saxophonist was very talented, we didn't feel it was an appropriate venue for this type of music. After 2 hours of pure saxophone without a backing track, it did I'm afraid become a little tedious. We were a little disappointed as 'fantastic live music' led us to expect something a more, a a band perhaps. Otherwise, most enjoyable.

    Not bad on the boat some staff may require more training!!

    The cruise along the thames may as well have been in a closed room. The was no commentary or information given as to where we were on the thames. There was a disabled lady who was wheelchair bound and was told when booking that there would be a gangway for wheelchairs but the was not and my wife had to ask one of the staff for assistance and the lady had to be lifted in her wheelchair onto the boat. This was very embarassing and frightening for her. I would not recommend it to any of my friends or family.

    Since this was a "Sundowner" cruise it would have been better if it had departed later since this was mid-June. The sun was not down even when we returned to the dock after the cruise. That said, the cruise was very nice along the Thames .

    A bit mean with the canapes. Music didnt start until near the end of the cruise

    If more attention to detail had been paid cleaning the boat prior to cruise this would be an excellent rating. Boat also needed some TLC first impressions weren't great compared to others they had.

    It seemed like the cruise was billed as a dinner cruise. It was more of a snack/appetizer cruise. Drinks on entry to the boat and the live music were definitely huge positives. The crew was great and overall had a great experience!

    A Sundowner Cruise at the end of May that had no sun. In fact, it rained and London's skies were as grey as could be but we sat on the top deck until we got too cold and then sat downstairs to warm up. The staff were lovely, the canapes were plentiful and we really enjoyed it. So much so, we are thinking of doing one of their dinner cruises next time. Maybe in the sunshine!!

    This was not a good time for a cruise - too dark for good pictures and not dark enough for the city lights - I would not advise this time for a river cruise.

    A perfect way to see the sights, get a bit tipsy & enjoy a live muscian.

    I can't recommend this highly enough, loved it.

    Apart from Les Mis' it was the highlight of our London break & such good value.

    Music too loud so not possible to speak. Rhe musician refused to turn down the music. Canapes good but only 3 per person.i took a group of french people and I was very unhappy. Considering the price I expected better.

    The let down was that although it was supposed to be back at 20-30 , we actually returned about 20--00 went past the boarding point sat in water near Parliament for approx 5 mins then when back and disembarked about 20-10.

    A crusie that shows Tower Bridge on its advertisement should actually go to it on a cruise advertised to tourism. Several people were overheard complaining in out general area that it did not.

    This was branded as a jazz cruise but consisted of a bored guy occasionally playing saxophone against a too loud backing track.

    There was not enough space for everyone to sit down.


  • 1 year ago

    The boat went in the wrong direction. I intended and expected to see Tower Bridge for sundown


  • 1 year ago

    At least clean the windows!!! The staff was excellent, and the musician, I feel sorry for them having to work in awful condituons like this...

    Price of drinks are overpriced, canopes consisted of 3 small pieces and all fish. Very disappointing as this was for our wedding anniversary!


  • 1 year ago

    ★★

    This sundowner cruise was actually quite disappointing. My Mum and Dad came up to see us as a belated mothers day gift.

    The boat used was tiny and had horrible conference like chairs plonked around the edge of the boat with random tables in front. It was very warm and cramped in. I think we managed to get 2 canopes each as most where fish which we didnt like. So we where hungry, cramped in and boiling hot.

    The Jazz performer spent around 45 minutes of the 2 hour cruise eating or drinking. He must have had most of the food that was for the customers! He didnt interact with the crowd at all and look extremely scruffy!

    All in all I was very upset having spent my money on four tickets :o(

    Hopefully you will take my comments seriously for future events.

    1) tidy up the boat and have uniformed decor!

    2) employ a better performer who speaks to people and creates a nice atmosphere

    3) Control the heating properly with a thermostat or aircon.

    4) Ensure you have a greater selection of canapes.

    5) Serve a nice taste Processco, maybe Asti. It was terrible.

    6) Do not over crowd the boat, use a bigger one if there is too many people booked in. It shouldnt always be about profit.



    Thank you

    Brilliant , we went in August so it really was a sundowner. Nearly dark on our return and saw all the famous buildings lit up. At the time we went the weather was perfect.

    I could not fault this cruise, will go again next year.

    The ambience on the cruise and quality of the canapés was very good. The Pimms was well stirred! I would book again in the early summer, as this was a late September birthday celebration.

    The cruise was good value for money on the August offer, it might have not been so at the higher non offer price.



    Canapes were lovely and plentiful - the weather was perfect for our cruise although understandably this is outside the control of us mere mortals! Would recommend this cruise.

    We had a lovely time on a sundowner , I booked it for a friends 6th birthday treat along with another friend , we enjoyed it so much that I recommended it to my sister in Suffork and she & her husband took their daughter & son-in-law on a sundowner for their 25th wedding anniversary .

    I was lucky enough to go on my sundowner tour on a warm sunny day and I really enjoyed it.



    You may need to wrap up if you happen to go on a chilly day.



    You'll g past iconic London landmarks so don't forget your camera!

    Beautiful evening on Thames on a nice boat. Up on deck was quite crowded initially forcing staff to bring up some extra seats. Insufficient staff (2) serving drinks/canapés during the trip. Plastic glasses should be considered as three glasses were broken, causing 1 of the 2 staff to stop serving and clear up broken glass. A demanding group at front of boat meant that we were never offered a drink from the bar, I had to stop a waiter on his way down the stairs and we were offered the leftovers of the canapés from the front of the boat. But a lovely evening and the sax player was good.

    No commentary during the cruise to give us any indication of where we were, we were planning on using this cruise to get our bearing and would have like to have the major buildings and icons pointed out.Unfortunitly disapointed.

    enjoyed cruise, staff pleasant, we felt that although the saxophonist was very talented, we didn't feel it was an appropriate venue for this type of music. After 2 hours of pure saxophone without a backing track, it did I'm afraid become a little tedious. We were a little disappointed as 'fantastic live music' led us to expect something a more, a a band perhaps. Otherwise, most enjoyable.

    Not bad on the boat some staff may require more training!!

    The cruise along the thames may as well have been in a closed room. The was no commentary or information given as to where we were on the thames. There was a disabled lady who was wheelchair bound and was told when booking that there would be a gangway for wheelchairs but the was not and my wife had to ask one of the staff for assistance and the lady had to be lifted in her wheelchair onto the boat. This was very embarassing and frightening for her. I would not recommend it to any of my friends or family.
