“Great Day Out”
Wonderful Birthday Present. Hop on Hop Off River Cruise and Champagne Afternoon Tea. Excellent from start to finish. Couldn’t have had better service.

“A lovely cruise and afternoon tea. ”
My husband was bought this experience for his birthday and as it is our anniversary today, thought we would use it yesterday. Could have been a better day for it but the sun did come out eventually so we were able to sit upstairs on the cruise. The captains mate have a witty commentary which was entertaining. Unfortunately we got our timing wrong and were a bit late getting to the tea. We rang ahead so they were ok. Enjoyed the tea which was served by very pleasant staff and was delicious.

“Great day”
Cruise on Thames was great staff very friendly. Tea in the afternoon was lovely. Shame it rained all afternoon. [Ed’s note. Alas, you can always rely on the good old British weather]

“Fabulous Trip to London ”
What a wonderful day we had. The River Cruise on the Thames was wonderful, all the staff were excellent, very friendly & super helpful. The Champagne Afternoon Tea was the best we’ve ever experienced. The food was absolutely amazing ?. Thank you Virgin Experience ????
