    Just to let you know that we had a fantastic night on Saturday. Francine was great and all went exactly as I hoped. Food worked well, DJ was really great, decorations perfect, security were unobtrusive and courteous but firm, bar staff very efficient and plenty of room for dancing. Thanks so much for delivering a truly special night…

    July 2016 Thames Pride Boat

    The event was a great success. Everyone enjoyed it enormously. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The boat was perfect for the event. It was the right size, was very clean, and looked just right. Everyone commented that the toilets were clean and very well appointed! The soft seating area on the upper deck was very popular, and, thanks to the good weather, the outside area was particularly popular.

    November 2017 Thames Voyager

    The boat was punctual and looked very nice especially the dining deck. Everyone enjoyed the route we took and seeing the sights. We had originally asked the skipper to go towards Greenwich but he advised to go west and we were very glad that he did. Nice friendly staff. The food was very well presented and cooked, and delicious, with what seemed to be just the right quantities.
