What people are saying about London

The river cruise was absolutely amazing staff were brilliant food was awesome and the singing and music was magical party atmosphere from beginning to end sights at night were beyond expectations. Didn’t want the evening to end. Probably the best evening entertainment available

It was an amazing experience, one of the best nights I’ve had in London. Tip: if you want to take pictures since it’s so dark take it near or under London Bridge.

Very pleasant and long cruise along the Thames. I wish the food options were better, but overall I enjoyed it very much.

Lovely food, great service with friendly staff! Just need a new singer.

Very good night out, something different. you will love it.
