November 2017’s TLC events: what charterers had to say
Excitement for the upcoming magical festive season on the Thames ramped up in November, as guests sought to plan their New Year's Eve celebrations in good time.
If you were unable to make this, we would love to welcome you along to Butler's Wharf Pier for your very own guided tour at your convenience. Ensuring you visit the boats will help you gain a real feel for how your event will look when it all comes together in truly stunning surroundings.
All the while we heard back from many recent charterers who shared their experience on board with us. 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.
We'll start with one particularly glowing review which we were delighted to receive at the start of the month.
The event was an absolute hit because of the hard work that you put into it. You really made our dream come alive and allowed us to create our vision of having an engagement winter wonderland on the Dixie Queen.
Every email you sent back answered each of our questions efficiently, succinctly and creatively. It shows great professionalism to show such patience, particularly whilst you are planning many other events. I also really appreciated your honesty in discussing exactly what is likely to work and not work. Your approachability and flexibility was what led us to go with the boat party idea in the first place as we felt comfortable to ask you questions, and your creative ideas helped us to enhance the vision we had and make it a party to remember.
On the night, Katie managed the boat fantastically and dealt with the crowd of people professionally and with great friendliness. The catering staff delivered fantastic food which was delicious and in abundance so that no one went hungry. The desserts were delicious and we really appreciate you serving our cake as well. The welcome drink was delicious and I understand people were requesting more which is just brilliant.
Thank you so much for your hard work, diligence and creativity to make our engagement party a success. We look so forward to working with you in the future. The team on the night created our vision to perfection and exceeded all expectations of what the wonderland would look like.
Thank you so much again.

Thank you for your help in organising our trip. Everyone had a great experience and all went very smoothly. Please pass on our thanks to the crew who were very attentive and looked after us very well.
For many of our students that took part today, it was their first experience of a river boat cruise on the Thames and it was clear that they were fascinated by the different perspective of London they experienced. And the weather was very kind to us so it could not have been better!
