July's TLC events: what charterers had to say
The sun was finally on its best behaviour in July, giving charterers and their guests some beautiful weather during their time on the Thames.
All of our boats were in high demand, so we’ve compiled a selection of reviews from the month below - which have been collected from our official Reviews.co.uk page:
Paula F – 5 stars – University event
Efficient, courteous, and welcoming. Food excellent – a lovely variety of dishes. Freedom to walk anywhere on board. Wines and other drinks met our needs entirely. So good to have the ability to choose more or less of your house wines.
Allan W – 5 stars – Corporate event
The Captain and his "mate" looked after us very well and the children felt safe with him. The trip was very interesting and he told us things that we didn’t know about the sights. We were well catered for with drinks and we all thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Cecilia S – 5 stars – Corporate event
It was a wonderful evening cruising down the Thames. The Elizabethan and all its staff were exceptional. Everyone in our group loved the cruise and dinner down the Thames. I would definitely recommend Thames Luxury Charters.
Debbie H – 5 stars – Networking event
The staff are lovely, very approachable and keen to help you, offering advice on what is on offer to help the party go well and suit your requirements. Thank you Claudia and Kirsten for all your help so far.
Angie J – 5 stars – Networking event
As ever, Thames Luxury Charters nailed a fun experience. All the staff are friendly and efficient, with the food and drinks served perfectly! The ice cream machine was delicious! Thank you, and hopefully see you very soon.
Laura H – 5 stars – Charity event
We booked the Elizabethan for a charity event and it was brilliant from start to finish. Great staff, well organised, beautiful venue and great food and drink on board. We raised a significant amount for our charity, which I attribute a great deal to the wonderful experience on board. We'd love to use you again!
Bill Evans – 5 stars – Corporate event
Thank you to Kirsten and the team on the Edwardian for making our trip on the Thames so enjoyable. Kirsten was extremely helpful with the booking process and made sure everything was perfect for our day out.
The boat was lovely inside and fantastic to enjoy the views and sunbathe outside with lots of seating. The team on the boat were friendly, helpful and made sure we were well looked after. The catering was delicious, we were all well fed and the team made sure to cater well for the gluten free dietary requirement, who certainly did not go hungry with delicious alternatives to the sandwiches and desserts.
Overall, a fantastic day, a lovely venue and great service.
Amber S – 5 stars – Corporate event
We enjoyed our summer party on the Elizabethan so much last year that we decided to do the same again this year. We were not disappointed.
The food was delicious and all staff on board were extremely helpful with any questions queries we had.
Dr Laurence M – 5 stars – Family event
First-class service on the newly-refurbished Dixie Queen. The crew worked unhesitatingly right up to the last minute to address the layout, stage and tables to my specification. Food portions were generous, staff helpful and the cruise was smooth running.
All the guests enjoyed the entire evening and said it was one of the best parties they had attended. A massive thanks from me to Thames Luxury Charters and the captain and crew of the Dixie Queen for making our night such a special and fitting one.
I recommend them wholeheartedly.
Ali B – 5 stars – Wedding
We had our big day on the Elizabethan on 30 July 2016. I should say everything was perfect. The staff were professional and very nice indeed, and the food was delicious. Almost all of our guests were saying what a great venue and what a great idea!
If you are looking for a different, but very enjoyable experience, I totally recommend this option!
