The cruise was great. The staff were very helpful and polite. The captain did the commentating rather than a recording - much more personal. A real treat with very nice food. Lovely. I would recommend it
Very enjoyable day, however your waiters need to understand our language better. When ordering drinks for a party of TWO. The order was one orange juice and one orange and lemonade. The order came out as two orange juices and one lemonade. The orange and lemonade obviously should have been in the same glass. When we tried to explain it was obvious your waiter could not understand the problem. This resulted in an extra charge of two pounds which spoilt the trip
We had a very enjoyable time - the food was good and the general arrangements were fine. Only minor quibble was the rather cramped waiting area prior to boarding, with insufficient seating for those waiting. But overall this did not detract from our enjoyment.
A lovely meal on board a great boat with very informative information all the way through the cruise. A very pleasant experience which I will repeat at a later date.
Loved the panoramic view from the boat! Five star service from a very friendly and attentive waiter. The lunch portion was a bit on the small side but tasty. Would definitely recommend!!
A really lovely experience,the food was lovely and the service was spot on. Would really recommend to everyone.
A little slow to board perhaps, maybe a quicker ticketing system would be beneficial - great experience though, enjoyed very much.
Every time I go to London I get this overwhelming urge to visit as many of the tourist attractions as possible, but it doesn’t matter how prepared I am (and I always wear my comfiest shoes, that’s a number one rule when wandering around the city of London) I am always defeated. By the end of the day my feet are screaming at me to give them a break and sit down. So today that’s exactly what l decided to do as I set sail on an hour and a half luncheon sightseeing cruise, down the river Thames, courtesy of Bateaux London Cruises.
The cruise gave me the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of London, and see some of the city’s most famous sights, whilst also enjoying a delicious three course meal freshly prepared on board. In my opinion there is no better way to see London than by boat, as the sights from the water are spectacular and you don’t have to worry about trying to navigate your way round the tube stations.
The cruise set sail promptly from Victoria Embankment Pier, where myself and Poppy were greeted by a very friendly waitress and shown to our seats. The best feature of The Harmony boat was its panoramic windows which enabled you to enjoy all the major sights whilst offering a unique perspective of this amazing city. There was also on board commentary during the cruise highlighting the key attractions as we sailed past them and informing us all about the rich history of London.
The cruise offers a set three course lunch menu of classic British dishes, an excellent idea if you are a proper tourist (unlike myself) and looking to try some of the local cuisine. They also offer a vegetarian alternative to cater to everyone’s needs. Once everyone was seated on board and we had set sail it was not long until our first course arrived…and I was in for a treat. Even the presentation made my mouth water so you can imagine how good it tasted. To start I had smoked salmon terrin, accompanied with pickled cucumber, caper mayonnaise and buttered whole grain bread. This was followed by my main course; chicken ballotine, sweet potato mash and a French bean and rocket pesto, which was delicious. And of course no set menu would be complete without dessert (my favourite part of the meal!) and the cherry frangipane tart with cherry and raspberry coulis did not disappoint! Not only was the food amazing the service was also impeccable; the staff were attentive to our needs and very friendly making our experience thoroughly enjoyable.
After my meal I decided to get snap happy with my camera ( I love acting like a tourist).The views from the boat are wonderful, as you get to absorb the beauty of London and the juxtaposition of the calm tranquil cruise compared to the flurry of the city centre. The ship also boasts the largest open viewing deck on the Thames; unfortunately it was raining whilst we were on the cruise and I didn’t fancy getting wet, but I would definitely recommend checking this out on a sunny day! The cruise really is one of the best ways to experience as much of London as possible in a short space of time; In the space of an hour and a half we managed to see the London Eye, Tower Bridge, The Tower of London and the Tate Modern, to name but a few of the 24 landmarks you will pass by.
