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.
