Board Bateaux London's river cruiser from the glass pontoon at Embankment Pier, then relax on board and enjoy a three-course lunch, followed by tea or coffee. But don't let the great food distract from the fabulous views available on Thames cruises, as the boat passes the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London and many more iconic landmarks. After lunch (from a seasonally changing menu) be dropped off just a few steps from the EDF Energy London Eye. There may be a queue here, but it'll be worth it on climbing aboard the air-conditioned capsule. The Eye slowly turns, giving sensational panoramic views across London from 135 metres up. This experience is for two but is also available for one (BATTO).

I took my mother on the Thames lunch cruise and on the London eye for her birthday and it was amazing. The service was unbelievable and we were both made to feel very special. It was definitely worth it and an experience that was unforgettable. The views were amazing and the experience lasted for the whole day. Everything was already planned and the booking was quick and easy. If you want to treat someone this is definitely the best idea as it's truly unforgettable.
My husband and I really enjoyed the day. The views from the boat were great and the informative commentary made them even better. The food was lovely too. Adding the London Eye to the cruise was well worth it - we could see the crowds outside Buckingham Palace waiting for news of the new Prince.
My children bought my wife and I this gift for our 25th Anniversary........we had a great day out on the boat the commentary was fantastic and the meal was great.
The experience was first class, professional service and the food was amazing.
The staff on board our River Cruise were excellent. We had a very enjoyable meal. Would recommend highly.
The service, staff and food onboard the river cruise was all first rate and is highly recommended. Being a busy August Saturday, the queue for the London Eye was around 45 minutes, but the tickets can be fast tracked or we could have used at any date up to end of March next year.
Very good meal and a relaxing cruise
Wonderful experience! Excellent commentary, wonderful food and superb service on board. Food was excellent and beautifully presented. Would do this again.
We got given this as a wedding present, booking this experience was really easy and when we got to the boat to pick our tickets up we found the staff friendly and informative. The customer service all the way though the trip was brilliant. We saw a few free tables near the window free and asked to move table from the centre of the boat, once we started moving we were lucky enough to get a window seat (important to say we had to ask for this and it placed into a queue of those that request it as people paid extra to get this experience) we had amazing views, fantastic food and excellent service. One truly amazing experience with the London eye as well.
What a wonerful present to give/recieve.The service was great and food excellent.Thank you for making our day special. What a wonderful way to dine.
We had a most enjoyable day out in London and the experience exceeded our expectations. The boat trip was excellent and gave us a view of London which enabled us to see the sights of the city which we hear about but had never seen. The boat was was clean and spacious and gave us an all round view of those London landmarks which we see on TV and decide that we must see for real. The meal was excellent and the staff polite and efficient. A great way to enjoy the Thames, enjoy a meal and enjoy the sights. Although the queue was long at the London Eye we were able to enjoy the sunshine and the queue was well handled by the numerous and effective marshals who carried out their duties with humour and a smile and we were soon airborne. The view exceeded expectations and on a clear and sunny day we were able to pick out the many landmarks which we know and love about London. We went on to see more of the city on foot and got back to Birmingham well satisfied with the day. Thank You.
This was a birthday present which in the event was greatly appreciated. Harmony is a great boat for river cruising, the food was enjoyed very much and the staff were first class and very friendly. The layout of the dining area is excellent also. We have already recommended your company to relatives and friends. The London Eye is a great way to see London from a new viewpoint, in air conditioned comfort. A good day all round.
Nice setup and very good food and nice setup, and hope next time would be longer
This package was bought for us as a ruby wedding gift from our family and I can only describe it as a perfect day.
Very impressed with the service and quality of food. London viewed from the river seemed like a different city!
Given as a Christmas present for my wife and i. Selected a day when hopefully it was dry and clear, worked out perfect on both. Having experienced the day would tell anyone to "go for it" as all worked our good both enjoying it 100%.
