Really enjoyed the whole experience. An unique view of London - the old and the new. Quite amazing!
Extremely pleasant cruise from start to return. Friendly helpful staff, good table layout. Nice experience.
A Christmas present from our son in Australia, which proved to be an excellent choice. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable day and will definitely recommend it to our friends. We have been on several trips on the Thames and this one was the best by far. The staff were very attentive and the food excellent.
good day out
Both of us were ill after eating food on board. We both had Ham Hock and roast lamb. The lamb was reheated so I suspect that was the fault.
Really enjoyed a great day sailing down Thames. Food was good. Service excellent. Music lovely.
My 60th Birthday present also became my anniversary celebration. We had such a lovely day
We had a great time. The staff were very attentive especially Patricia. Nothing was too much trouble. Made our trip all the more special.The wine I thought was a little pricey but good quality.
Lucky with the weather! Enjoyed the food, the drinks, the band, the efficient, speedy service, the whole atmosphere.
Everything about the experience was excellent. Nothing to complain about. Vessel great, facilities great, food great, entertainment great, service great. 10/10 *****
Decided to treat my mum to a lunch and cruise on the Thames. We were welcomed at reception and then shown to our table once on board. Very polite and helpful staff looked after us and the food was equally impressive. Will definitely do it again!
Very good cruisei .Friendly staff. good views. Good food.
From start to finish the sun shone,the service and attention given on board was so good.Jazz band were subtle but perfect for the occasion.Great birthday gift for my husband
Booking procedure very straightforward and our lunch was most enjoyable, The staff on the boat were all very friendly, food hot and well presented (although obviously not a big choice of menu) and wine prices were reasonable. Nice friendly atmosphere with people talking to others on different tables. Nice to have the band playing and a few couples danced but should imagine a bit livelier on an evening cruise. London looked lovely
Serving staff were great, very good food, and the Thames view of London is truly unique! And a very good jazz trio.
We experienced a fabulous day on Sunday on the Symphony Jazz Cruise. We celebrated our friends 80th birthday and had a wonderful time, the food was outstanding and the music was very entertaining. Our waitress was very pleasant and the sites we saw were outstanding. What an amazing way to view all the wonderful architecture and sites. We certainly will be back but next time would like to do it on an evening as I am sure the buildings will look even more spectacular lit up at night.
Had a fantastic Day on the Jazz lunch cruise...the food and service was very good ...Great way to celebrate a special occasion ...
A very enjoyable two and a half hours cruising the thames. Weather was perfect, clear but not too hot as inside of boat can get a bit warm. Nipped on deck inbetween courses to take in the views and get some air. A really nice length of time, very relaxing with good food and drink. Fully recommend it.
A excellent way of ejoying London's river and the riverside sights while enjoying a pleasant lunch.
Lovely food professionally served without forcing the pace. Plenty of space aorund the tables so we could be served & move around without disturbing other diners. Bottled water is a bit pricey!
Nearest tube station is Embankment from which it is only a short walk to Embankment pier
