First of all, thank you for your help in arranging our visit aboard the Elizabethan and for ensuring that everything we arranged happened.

It was a great success and I would ask you to pass on our sincere thanks to Carole and her team for the way they looked after us, including the crew of the beautiful boat. The meal and wines were excellent so please also give a big thank you to the chef on our behalf. Also please pass on our thanks to Jane Parker and her colleagues for the lovely entertainment which was enjoyed by all.

Our Chairman claims responsibility for the perfect weather we enjoyed, which was the icing on the cake! The whole event was wonderful and we would be happy to recommend your company to anyone thinking of doing a similar event.

I just wanted to thank you and the team for assisting us in organising our event on board the Dixie Queen. This was our best session yet and we have had a number of comments of thanks. We wouldn't have received them without your assistance and that of the entire TLC team. Special thanks to Chris, Kevin, Jamie and the staff on board.

Darren K (March 2017)

Thank you so much for all of your assistance and advice in making our boat party such a success. The food was fabulous, with the Indian selection proving to be the most popular! Katy and the team were wonderful, so efficient, friendly and courteous. The weather also did its bit allowing our guests to enjoy the views of the river from the top deck. A big thank you to all the team at Thames Luxury Charters and we are already looking forward to next year!

Alison D (July 2017)

The organisation was great from day one, efficient and supported, and all the staff on the boat were brilliant. Anna made sure we had a wonderful evening, so thank you all very much indeed. Our party was a fabulous success and I wouldn't hesitate to use Thames Luxury Charters again in the future. I recommend them highly to all.

Hazel H (July 2017)

The staff were helpful, pleasant and completely trustworthy, refunding the cost of wine which we had purchased in advance but not used. The food was very good. The route of the cruise was ideal to show our foreign visitors the sights of London. I would thoroughly recommend this company.


What an absolutely amazing way to spend an afternoon. The Dixie Queen is absolutely stunning. I can't speak highly enough of the whole event!

The team delivered a fantastic event for us. Being based in East Yorkshire, we were only able to visit the location once before the event - but we were kept up to date with progress as the event approached. The food, drink and entertainment were outstanding. The team managed last minute guest changes brilliantly and were really supportive.


An excellent evening aboard a wonderful, stylish boat, the Dixie Queen. The food and catering was brilliant, the staff were friendly and attentive and the whole experience was a pleasure to be part of.

I've had several excellent experiences on Thames Luxury Charters. The service has always been fantastic on every boat I have been on, and the whole setting provides a superb venue for every event I've attended onboard. I highly recommend them.


The cruise was regarded as a great success by the delegates who came from a wide range of countries, including China, Japan, USA, Canada and Australia as well as most of the EU countries.

The trip back to Westminster Pier was particularly memorable with the lights on many of London's famous buildings. There was more than one comment that this was the best way to see London.

Many thanks to the staff who made who made the trip memorable.
