Summer 2018's TLC events: what charterers made of their time on board
With London enjoying record-breaking temperatures, the River Thames was the ideal place to enjoy the gorgeous weather during the summer.
There are few better ways to enjoy the season than on board your very own luxury private vessel, surrounded by friends, family and colleagues. From weddings and parties to sightseeing trips and fine dining experiences, we hosted it all in style in the heart of London.
We've compiled a selection of genuine charterer feedback received during the summer below, which have been collected from our official Reviews.co.uk page and direct feedback from charterers.
Faith W | Summer Party | Erasmus
We held our annual summer party with TLC as we have done for the past several years and the service really couldn't be better. We had the Erasmus and it was fantastic having the whole open upper deck on a sunny day. The staff were lovely and the food was great. It is always a pleasure!
Ahmad J | Corporate Event | Edwardian
TLC went out of their way to make our event special. Everything from the setup to the food to the music was absolutely perfect. The staff were friendly and attentive to everyone's needs. It couldn't have gone better. It was our first time using TLC and it will definitely not be our last.
Tony R | Corporate Event | Elizabethan
It was a 10th anniversary event for 93 people aboard the Elizabethan. Excellent cruise with high praise from every guest on board. TLC staff were superb throughout the organising and delivery processes. Thank you for making it such a success.
Chloe Dunford | Summer Party | Dixie Queen
There were lots of staff, which was a very good thing, along with their service which was excellent. They worked very well and there was plenty of food. Tower Bridge opening was a fantastic add-on and loved by all. Once again, thank you very much for having us!
Helen T | Birthday Party | Erasmus
Excellent service from initial enquiry to the event taking place. A real can do attitude and the food offerings were amazing. Thank you!
Alicja M | Corporate Event | Edwardian
It is always great fun to see London's sights from the river. The office, catering staff and crew were all very helpful and ensured that everything worked smoothly. The food was good, the sparkling and white wines were chilled and everything went without a hitch.
Brian H | Corporate Event | Erasmus
The staff both on the boat and in the admin team were very friendly and professional. We have used the Erasmus for several cruises over the years and the boat is very well laid out for our needs. The food was extremely tasty and the on boat staff were excellent. Thank you.
Abs H | Wedding Reception | Dixie Queen
The Thames Luxury Charters team are some of the friendliest and most dedicated people we've met. They're helpful, well-organised and cost-effective, designing a bespoke package for us that led to a wonderful celebration with hundreds of guests. We got to know each and every person that we were dealing with for each part of the event by name. TLC put on hundreds of events every year but the attention we received seemed like only we mattered, from the initial enquiry to the day itself.
We couldn't be happier with how the day went on the Dixie Queen. It was always our dream to be married on a boat, and to see that come to life on the River Thames on one of the largest charters under the opening of the Tower Bridge was truly a spectacle. Nothing is ever too much for the TLC team and they were constantly willing to go the extra mile from our hundreds of requests and emails. TLC does really stand for Tender Loving Care!
Kirsten D | Summer Party | Edwardian
Everyone had a good time and the buffet food was to die for! Ruby Stow was fantastic in making sure everything was set up and booked for our summer office party. The crew were friendly and all went smoothly. Would highly recommend and we will be booking again for another event. Loved it!
Helen C | Corporate Event | Elizabethan
What a fantastic evening we had! The boat was amazing, as were the staff who catered for our every need. The entertainment was brilliant and the food was outstanding – we received so many comments about the quality of it. It truly was a memorable evening!
Kirsty G | Corporate Event | Edwardian
This is our second time on board the Edwardian with Thames Luxury Charters and I cannot fault the experience. From the point of booking to the end of the event everything went smoothly, the staff are very helpful and friendly, the boat is spotless and well maintained, the choice of food and drink is excellent. We all had a fantastic day. Looking forward to next year already!
Sara W | Birthday Party | Elizabethan
A huge thank you to you and your team for making my birthday party such a great evening. From the moment we first met to discuss the party, you have been very professional and well organised. Your advice and help was invaluable in helping us make the right choices for the evening, down to all the little details. We were particularly grateful for arranging the food tasting so we could test the gluten-free options.
On the night, the food was wonderful – very tasty and beautifully presented. All staff were wonderful, very friendly and attentive, making the whole evening a relaxed, fun event. We sailed a long way up and down the Thames, enabling us to enjoy wonderful views of different parts of London.
