TLC Summer 2021 Events: Reviews & Testimonials

After a challenging 18 months for everyone, it was to our immense delight that we were able to gradually and safely welcome guests back on board this summer, in line with our passage plan to reopening.

Although it had been a long time since we were able to operate as normal, our mission to deliver excellence at every step of your journey on the River Thames has not changed. It has been nothing short of a joy welcoming guests back on board and we have been more pleased than ever to hear what clients have made of their special experience in the heart of London.

We've compiled a selection of genuine charterer testimonials received during summer 2021 below. These have been collected from our official page and direct feedback from charterers.

If you would like to know more about what you can create on the River Thames, we warmly invite you to get in touch with our experienced and friendly Events Management Team, who would be delighted to help.

Andrew & Tara H | Wedding | Elizabethan

The boat was beautifully refurbished recently and we feel very privileged to have been one of the first events to use it. All our guests were amazed by it as we hadn’t divulged much beyond a boat featuring during our wedding day. It was so special and the staff were wonderful on the day. Special mention to Plamena who helped us with all the planning and rescheduling. We’re so pleased to have been able to keep the boat as part of our day.

Louisa G | Corporate Event | Edwardian

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the team for organising such a great boat trip for us on Wednesday. We thought the service and food was great and everyone was so friendly and made everything run so smoothly. It was the perfect place to be on such a hot day! Thank you so much again and we really hope to do something similar in the future.

Eleanor & David | Wedding | Dixie Queen

We just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you so much for everything you and your team did for our wedding yesterday. Everyone loved the boat and your staff were super helpful. The set up was amazing and the food looked and tasted great. We appreciate all of the time, energy and effort that you put into this.

Jenny W | Private DinnerElizabethan

We had a fabulous party on the Elizabethan on Saturday. All the guests were wowed by the boat and delicious food. The staff were fantastic on the night and Plamena and the events team were extremely helpful with the organisation. A wonderful evening, thank you!

Gavin K | Corporate EventEdwardian

Just a quick message to let you know that we had a fantastic experience aboard the Edwardian on Saturday. We had 42 guests in the end due to some COVID-related dropouts, but everybody had a great time and it was one of the best annual gatherings we have had in recent years.

Anna M | Wedding | Elizabethan

We had our wedding on board the refurbished Elizabethan in July and it was absolutely amazing! We had to move our date several times due to COVID but everything was sorted by the team very easily and efficiently with no fuss. On the day itself, everything went perfectly to plan (including the weather!) and the crew, staff, food and the boat itself were all incredible. It was the perfect day, so thank you.

Spinnaker Support Ltd | Corporate EventEdwardian

London and the weather was stunning, but the staff, crew and facilities of the Edwardian made for a wonderful evening for the entire team to celebrate doubling in size over the last year. The boat and its facilities were well received by all. Huge compliments on the food as well, with a great selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options!

Brian H | Corporate EventElizabethan

We had a wonderful day out on Wednesday and even the sun shone through for us. Everyone commented on how the boat looked and the interior upstairs. As we are a group of pensioners the upstairs seating was a great asset! We also enjoyed the round tables for lunch as conversations are far easier. The food was excellent and lots of people commented on how they enjoyed it.

Ruth C | Corporate EventEdwardian

The whole day went perfectly to plan and we were really happy with every element. The staff on board were all super helpful and we couldn’t have asked for more. Massive thanks for all your help putting it together and hopefully this can be the first of many events together!

Jay B | Private LunchEdwardian

Once again many thanks for all your help in making the event such a success and such an easy process. We still have guests complimenting us on the way it was organised and how relaxed and memorable it was with the accordionist, the games, the mouthwatering food, the excellent service, and the experience of being on the Thames. We have already recommended you and your firm to several of our family and friends.

Liz B | Summer PartyEdwardian

Thank you SO much for all your help with organising our party, it was honestly the absolute best. The member of staff who was looking after us and leading everything did such an amazing job, she really, really looked after everything we needed and was so polite and lovely, it made us feel really at ease and made the evening really special. Every single member of the bar staff were lovely too, and the DJ! It was absolutely brilliant. It really was 10/10 service and experience on all accounts.

Bexhill Electrical | Corporate EventElizabethan

We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and we have had lots of positive comments and great feedback, so we hope to do the same again next year. I just hope we can order the good weather that came with it this year – we were so lucky and it meant we could have the roof open on the boat which was amazing!

Mike & Sarah B | Anniversary PartyEdwardian

We had a wonderful anniversary cruise on Saturday. All the family and a few close friends joined us and everyone had a great time. Thank you for all you did to make it happen. Please give our thanks to Captain Arnold and a special thanks to Erika and her team. They looked after us wonderfully. All the arrangements went smooth as clockwork. Thank you again for a lovely day.
