July's TLC events: what charterers had to say
Summer 2017 continues to be a hugely popular one with charterers on the River Thames.
We hosted a wide array of bespoke celebrations, weddings and corporate gatherings on board the most elegant fleet in London in July, including a sudden pirate invasion thanks to one swashbuckling charterer!
We've compiled a selection of reviews received during the month below, which have been collected from our official Reviews.co.uk page and direct feedback from charterers.
Interested in experiencing the River Thames in style? We still have some availability across the fleet for upcoming dates, so we invite you to speak with our helpful and friendly Events Management Team and view our magnificent fleet. Saturday viewings are still available, meaning it's easier than ever to do so.
Finally, although some may not want to admit it, Christmas will be here before you know it! We'd like to take this opportunity to let you know that ideas for luxury floating Christmas events on board will be available on our website soon, along with our extra special festive menus. Stay tuned to our Christmas page for more information.
Donna R | Corporate Event | Edwardian | 5 stars
TLC were very easy to do business with. Prior to and after the event, Lucy handled my booking with patience and professionalism. Lovely vessels (we've now enjoyed the Elizabethan and the Edwardian), good choice of food options, staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
James A | Party | Erasmus | 5 stars
They were well prepared to receive us all and the crew were very warm and receptive; the whole experience was enjoyable from beginning to end. This was our fifth trip with Thames Luxury Charters and the complete experience was excellent from booking to the end of the journey. Wonderful!
Lusia M | Corporate Event | Edwardian | 5 stars
We had a fabulous night on the Edwardian despite mixed weather. Our heartfelt thanks to Anna, Annika, Frank, Trey and all the staff who looked after us in such a lovely and welcoming way and made sure that we were safe, well fed and "watered". Great food and great service. Thank you so much!
Svitlana P | Corporate Event | Edwardian | 5 stars
We had a cruise on a very rainy day, but the guests still enjoyed it enormously. Thank you to the crew and banqueting team!
Darran L | Wedding | Elizabethan | 5 stars
Excellent support and advice prior to our wedding, fantastic service on the day and wonderful food made our day such a special occasion.
Claire K | Charity Event | Elizabethan | 5 stars
Everything about the booking process and our actual cruise was amazing. Lucy was incredibly helpful, the crew were very friendly and patient, the waiting staff efficient and professional and I must make a special mention to Asta who was very attentive with great attention to detail. Thank you.
Mike T | Party | Dixie Queen | 5 stars
From the welcome on boarding to the disembarkation, the staff and crew were cheerful, efficient and extremely attentive to everyone's needs. Excellent food and efficient bar and waiting staff enabled all to get the most out of the evening. This was our 15th year using Thames Luxury Charters and we'll be booking next year very soon.
Paul M | Wedding | Elizabethan | 5 stars
I hired the MV Elizabethan for my wedding reception - a perfect venue with an outstanding crew! The boat was exactly what we wanted for a relaxed event and the DJ (arranged by TLC) had everyone dancing all night with the roof open. The food was great, staff (in planning and delivery) all excellent - it was an amazing way to see London and a perfect party! Our wedding has been cited as the best ever and a few of our guests enquired about hiring the boat for their own upcoming events.
Keith O | Birthday | Edwardian | 5 stars
I’d like to thank you personally and all your team - both on and off shore! - for a wonderfully enjoyable evening. Great hospitality and food etc, but above all wonderful courtesy and professionalism; a truly amazing and unforgettable evening, particularly with Tower Bridge rising by chance as we sailed back. Thank you again, we look forward to many more trips with TLC.
Tracy B | Corporate Event | Edwardian | 5 stars
A big THANK YOU for organising our boat trip! Everything went really well, thankfully the weather was fantastic, it was a joy. We had really good positive feedback from our international colleagues, some visiting London for the first time, and what a great way to show them the city. The food, service and the captains were very helpful and accommodating, so please pass on our compliments to the team.
Michael F | Summer Party | Elizabethan | 5 stars
I just want to say a massive thank you for all of your help and how much the captain and crew of the Elizabethan made the night great. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback from the lads and their partners; the Corporals Club have set the benchmark for summer functions because of you and your team. Thank you!
Phillip C | Anniversary Party | Edwardian | 5 stars
My wife and I write to say what a great day we all had thanks to Thames Luxury Charters. The Edwardian was the best, the crew professional, the food delicious, the service great, the weather... what more could we ask for! We would like to reserve special praise for Jane Parker and her guitarist, they made music which was just perfect. Claudia did a fantastic job giving us advice and making it all happen, so thank you.
Alison D | Corporate Event | Erasmus | 5 stars
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!
Rhiannon S | Staff Party | Edwardian | 5 stars
Thank you very much for all your help in organising our corporate event on the river. It went really well and the staff on the Edwardian were brilliant, so friendly and helpful, in particular Anna, Alex and Natalie. They made it a very enjoyable experience and everyone had a great evening. Our team are all US ex-pats and will be recommending TLC to their friends and family.
Kirsty G | Corporate Summery Party | Edwardian | 5 stars
Everyone had a fantastic time - I think the weather definitely helped as most people stayed on the top deck and enjoyed the views! The vessel was spotless and lovely inside, while the food was good and plentiful. The staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. The overall experience was faultless; we will be booking again for 2018!
Hazel H | Corporate Event | Edwardian | 5 stars
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.
Tom P | Wedding | Elizabethan | 5 stars
A massive thank you for all your work in putting on an amazing day. Everything on the boat was flawless. We had a fantastic day so thanks to Jessie and all the other stuff too for helping to make it so special.
David H | Birthday | Erasmus | 5 stars
A great 40th party - everyone said what a fantastic idea it was. The TLC staff before and during the event couldn’t have been more helpful. Everything went like clockwork, and lots of flexibility was given - which is important given my half of my family were there!
