September 2017's TLC events: what charterers had to say
September was an exciting month on the river for TLC.
As well as the release of our highly-anticipated 2017 Festive Menus, we announced the launch of our new unique floating business meeting venues by Tower Bridge boasting unbeatable views to wow and inspire guests, colleagues and clients alike.
We've also been busy helping upcoming charterers create their ultimate Christmas party as we speed towards the end of the year. It's an enchanting time to be on the River Thames, topped off by our spectacular New Year's Eve dinner and fireworks cruise on P.S. Elizabethan. Tickets for that unmissable evening are now on sale.
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 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 should you wish to take to the river for your next event.
Colin W | Private Lunch | Edwardian | 5 stars
Brilliant! The day went without a hitch, the food was fantastic, the staff great - even the weather was good allowing us time on the open deck. All the staff looked after us so well, so pass on my thanks to all concerned for a job well done. Thank you everyone at TLC for making it such a memorable day.
Lucy S | Engagement Party | Erasmus | 5 stars
I just wanted to send you my thanks for helping me organise a fantastic evening, for answering all my emails be being so efficient. All my guest thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The staff on the boat were also very pleasant and I have had some lovely comments from my guests. The DJ was great and played everything I hoped and kept all guests of all ages dancing.
The photobooth attendant was positively amazing. I am so grateful as she helped my guests and also assisted with my guestbook. A big thank you to her.
I did have some lovely feedback on the canapés and food that was eaten and about the staff that served the food. I was told they all did it with a smile. The guests who spoke to me were very impressed and I have passed on your details to a couple of people as they were interested in enquiring.
Plamena was fantastic at organising this event for me and answering all of my numerous questions and emails over the previous months to the event with the utmost efficiency and excellent customer service. The staff on-board were very professional and welcoming to myself and all my guests. I have had only the best feedback from my guests as to the food, music and entertainment for the evening. It was such a special evening. Thank you.

Hannah N | Totally Thames Event | Dixie Queen | 5 stars
I can’t thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to celebrate the Boat Poets project in such an epic way, and to give so many people who have never been on the river an unforgettable experience on board the Dixie Queen!
Many thanks to your brilliant team for looking after everyone so well.
Mathilde F | Corporate Event | Dixie Queen | 5 stars
I would like to thank you and your team very much for doing a fantastic job with the group on the Dixie Queen. Thank you also to all the crew on board who agreed to wear the rock T-shirts and wigs to join in - they were amazing! Katy in particular was really helpful and perfect as usual. Thank you very much again.
Lucy W | Corporate Event | Elizabethan | 5 stars
A huge thank you for our event. It was one of the best parties I have been to in a long time, possibly ever, and that was down to all your help and a fantastic team on the night. Despite the travel chaos in London on the day, it was a completely wonderful party and everyone who came along was totally blown away by the whole thing, so I can’t thank you enough.
Everything went really smoothly and after the pandemonium we had during the day that was very much appreciated I can tell you. Thanks again for everything. I just wish we could do it all again!
Lee Evans Partnership | Corporate Event | Edwardian | 5 stars
Everyone had a fantastic time on our trip on the Edwardian. The boat was beautiful, all the staff were phenomenal, and the street food was absolutely outstanding! We’ll certainly not hesitate booking again in the future.
Louise B | Wedding | Elizabethan | 5 stars
We had the most brilliant day and it culminated with a fantastic experience aboard the Elizabethan. We were blessed with not only the great weather and fantastic company but the whole experience of the boat.
The build up onwards to the event was superb: it felt exceptionally organised and very efficient. We could not find fault at any stage and you not only fully delivered but I believe you went over and above to give us a truly memorable event. Our guests were blown away and the feedback has been exceptional. We will be back and will have no hesitation in spreading the good news.
Lara | Birthday Party | Erasmus | 5 stars
Wow, wow, wow... what an amazing evening! All our planning paid off, so thank you for all your help and patience! We couldn't have asked for better staff on board. Jesse and her gang were fabulous and the food crew and the food itself was out of this world! Our captain David and his guys were an absolute pleasure and incredibly helpful! Massive, massive thank yous and appreciation to all of you. It was an evening we will never forget.
Len D | Corporate Event | Edwardian | 5 stars
All of our guests, particularly those from abroad, thoroughly enjoyed our charter on the Edwardian on 24 September. Whilst clearly the excellent weather and views of London made for an excellent trip, there is no doubt that the Edwardian and its crew enhanced it still further. The whole Edwardian team were friendly, helpful and professional. We would certainly recommend them, and you in the HQ team.
Gemma M | Corporate Event | Elizabethan | 5 stars
We had a fabulous time on board the Elizabethan to celebrate our company’s 10th anniversary. The evening ran seamlessly. A special thanks to the TLC Events team and to Emi McGarry and all the TLC crew on board, all of whom were exceptionally helpful and diligent, which made not only for a fantastic evening that we all enjoyed but a pleasure to organise.
Jon M | Corporate Event | Edwardian | 5 stars
