The food was disgusting and the service very poor. The boat was very clean and airy but it was spoilt by the food and service.

We had a 9 hour layover in London on our way to Cape Town. Rather than stay all day in Heathrow airport, we took an 1 1/2 hour taxi to the Embarkment pier where we boarded for our river cruise. It would actually have been much faster to take the tube from LHR to the Embankment Pier underground station. This is exactly where the taxi let us off however, we did enjoy getting to see the various neighborhoods on the drive.
Once on board, we had a very nice lunch while we gently floated down the Thames pass many of the important buildings and sites along the river. There was an explanation over the speaker system of what was coming up on our right or left. You can also go outside to the front for even better views. Our table was along the window which was glass from top to bottom for great views. Afterwards, we boarded our prearranged taxi back to LHR with plenty of time for security and boarding our plane.
The only drawback was that the departure was 30 minutes later than stated on our Viator ticket. This caused some anxiety about returning to LHR.
