Hilary R | Family Event | Edwardian

On behalf of all my guests, may I thank you, the crew, caterers, florist and everyone else at TLC who worked so hard to give us a truly wonderful afternoon on board MV Edwardian. We all enjoyed every minute and only wished it didn’t have to end.

Everyone commented on the wonderful food and helpful staff who, despite the heat, did everything possible to make us comfortable. The flowers were beautiful and the cruise gave everyone a thoroughly memorable experience, particularly our Australian guests who were in London for the first time. I don’t know how you managed to arrange such incredible sunshine as well, but I can only presume that this is part of the magic of TLC’s event planning.

My sincere thanks and very best wishes. I do hope that we will have a chance to come back in the future.

Kate S | Summer Party | Dixie Queen

The pre-event communication was very informative and all responses to questions etc. were sent in a timely manner. The onsite team on the day/night were brilliant and stepped in immediately when we needed extra chairs and tables putting out. We were very well looked after on the night.

Iris P | Birthday Party | Elizabethan

The personalised website was a really nice touch and helped our guests to visualise and look forward to the event. Booking was made easy by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, who were always ready to answer any queries we had in the organisation of the whole event.

The vessel worked really well for our party in facilities, presentation and cleanliness. Food was well presented and enjoyed by all and all dietary requirements were met without any problem. Entertainment was excellent and enjoyed by all. Service on board was efficient and at the same time discreet.

The overall experience was a great atmosphere in which we could relax and enjoy being with our friends and family in the knowledge and confidence that all was being attended to.

Alice N | Wedding ReceptionEdwardian

It was a lovely party and really exceeded our expectations – the view, the boat, the food, the music and decorations were all wonderful and the staff on board were very nice and accommodating. We had a really great time and would rate every category as excellent.

Simon W | Company Anniversary PartyElizabethan

I organised a Thames river cruise with dinner as part of the social programme for an international research conference in central London. We were blessed with fine weather that evening, so my guests from all over the world had a fascinating view of the river and the city from the boat's top deck.

Even those of us who know London well enjoyed the different perspective on the city. The crew and caterers did a splendid job of looking after us and overall the whole cruise was a very enjoyable experience.

Lizette Y | Birthday Party | Edwardian

The entire experience was absolutely fantastic. I was so delighted that Chloe was able to get my event organised in such a short period of time (less than a week!) – kudos to Chloe’s professionalism! The guests thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience, from the boat to the food and open bar.

Razia U | Corporate EventDixie Queen

Absolutely loved working with Angela. She was a dream helping to coordinate the team on event day. All the hospitality staff on the day were extremely friendly and helped create a jovial and relaxed atmosphere. I would 100% work with this team again.

Janice G | Birthday Party | Elizabethan

I would like to say thank you for making my birthday so special. Everything was done so well. The food was excellent and beautifully served, and there was plenty to drink – please thank all the staff involved. I would especially like to give thanks to Simon who went out of his way to make sure everything ran smoothly, even pointing out the flat where a guest’s grandson lived so they could wave to them as they went by! An excellent day.

Caz P | Corporate Event | Dixie Queen

The team were excellent and gave us the most wonderful experience. The food was superb, the service was impeccable and the weather… well, we can't attribute that to the team but it just made it all the more enjoyable. Thank you so much!

Harry S | Anniversary PartyElizabethan

A great experience. All my guests enjoyed the evening. The food was delicious and plentiful. Lots of staff all very pleasant and professional. The event manager and catering manager ensured the evening went to plan seamlessly without intruding on my enjoyment of the event.
