What people are saying about The Shard

Boarding was quick and easy. The boat was spacious, flooded with light. Great views from the tables. The amenities were clean. Service was quick, friendly and polite. Afternoon tea served shortly after departure: sandwiches, little cakes, sultana scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream. Tea/coffee constantly topped up. The drinks waiter balanced a glass of whisky on his elbow and poured the lemonade into it and popped the champagne cork behind his back! However, what really impressed me: the reason for our trip was to celebrate a friend's birthday but I had not mentioned anything about it when booking the tour. However, the staff presented her with a slice of chocolate cake and sang Happy Birthday. I can only think that they noticed the Happy Birthday sash she was wearing and decided to do something special for her. This was done out of the kindness of their hearts which is so sweet, a real personal touch that you just don't see these days. I highly recommend this tour.

Fabulous, delicious. Couldn't hear the guide as he narrated very often. He tended to drop his voice when he got to the end of sentences. Staff was wonderful. Attentive. Lots of smiles.

Fantastic atmosphere, good food, I just wish I could choose the flavor of the tea, but that was not possible!!
