This activity will end right where it started.
Your luncheon cruise sets off from Tower Pier in central London at midday. Make your own way to the pier with plenty of time to board the boat and find your seat in the cozy, indoor saloon. Sit back and enjoy panoramic views of the city shoreline as your cruise begins.

Heading west from Tower Pier, first pass the formidable Tower of London, situated in the modern Square Mile, followed by The Shard—the 95-story pyramid dominates the South Bank skyline. Continue on to Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a historic active theater, and the enormous London Eye. Along the South Bank, witness the bustle of performers, locals, and meandering tourists. Your cruise loops at Westminster, where you get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben before turning around.

As you cruise, indulge in a sumptuous 2-course meal featuring an entree and dessert with coffee and tea. For an added treat, purchase wine, beer, or other non-alcoholic beverages from the onboard bar. After lunch, get some air on the outside deck as your river cruise returns to Tower Pier. Arrive with plenty of time to continue sightseeing (and walk off your hearty meal)!

Good experience though...
Yeyani_S
, May 2022
Good experience though they need to devise a way to figure out that everyone have their meals and desserts roughly the same time. We had to ask for our dessert whilst others were already having their tea. Waiters were already clearing up whilst we waited for the dessert and had cold tea because we were served last after begging for the dessert and tea. Sorry that’s how I felt.

Well we missed the lunch cruise because of unexpected traffic. Viator needs a better phone contact to get i touch with the cruise boat company. But at least the boat company did allow is on a regular city tour by boat

Disappointing
Richard_G
, Apr 2022
We missed the boat due to a taxi delay and I understand that it is my fault but tried tried to explain and rebook or get a refund and I haven’t received any feedback after spending an hour on the phone and being told I would receive an email to ask the tour operators for a refund and I haven’t received anything just £168 out of pocket and your asking me now how was my trip ……… unbelievable

PERSPECTIVE
Katherine_D
, Apr 2022
We needed something easy to do that included lunch until hotel room was ready. The Thanes lunch tour filled the bill and was better than we expected. The cruise gave us a different and unique perspective of London that can't be achieved fom a bus or other mode of transport. Seating was assigned - a nice feature. The lunch was very good and the dessert sensational. All in all an excellent value.

Great Lunch Cruise

, Apr 2022
This was a lovely lunch cruise. The Vegetarian lunch and dessert was delicious. The cruise itself was enough time to see the Thames River. Much further than a 30 min ride. The cruise commentator was a nice touch to point out specific points of interest. Boris our waiter was very attentive.
