Our Boat Charters – Testimonials & Reviews

My birthday party was fabulous and all the guests appreciated the William B and all the crew!  Your staff were all charming and obliging and there was a marvellous atmosphere on the boat. Thank you so much. I will look at the invoice very soon and get it paid. In the meantime thank you for your efficiency and great service. ”

Just leaves me to say a big thank you to everyone at Thames Leisure for making Valerie’s party a truly memorable evening. The experience surpassed our expectations and everyone who attended couldn’t stop saying how much they enjoyed themselves. The Salon set up was perfect and the food and cake amazing, as were the flowers on the tables. That said, the ability to be on the upper deck with unfettered views of so many London landmarks was spectacular. We also enjoyed being able to dance the night away on the upper deck. The DJ gave us a great selection of music which everyone enjoyed, it was just a pity he was down stairs and unable to see how much people were enjoying themselves up stairs! Please pass on our thanks.

I can’t sign off without making special mention of Joanna and her team who looked after us so well, she was there to make sure things happened when they needed to but never intruded and was so willing to be flexible.

Thanks again and rest assured we will certainly recommend you if we hear of anyone looking to have a party on the river.

Allan Murley, XL Insurance

“We held our first ever candidate/client boat party aboard the Dutch Master and couldn’t have been happier, not only with the boat itself but the service from the whole Thames Leisure team and their help in making it run as smoothly as it did. We will be back!”

Social Personnel

“Thank you for looking after us so well on Friday on board The Will. We all had a fabulous day and, most importantly, The Spectator readers had a great deal of fun. The feedback has been extremely positive. A number of them tottered off to continue the party together, so I think some new friendships were forged over the cruise, clays, cocktails and claret!

Hazel, thank you for your help with all the organising, I know it wasn’t easy and you were great at keeping the show on the road. Sarah, you looked after us brilliantly on the day and please thank Isabelle and the rest of the team for us (especially Chef as he did an amazing job with a delicious lunch). Roger and the team had everyone entertained with the clay pigeon shoot and, most importantly, Mark, you and your crew were fantastic in getting everyone on and off the boat, to and from the clay shoot site and – most excitingly – under Tower Bridge (twice for some of us!) with apparent calmness in very challenging conditions. You certainly know your boat well!”

Laura Taylor, Private Cellar

“What a fabulous evening, an experience of a lifetime! I attended a private birthday celebration on the gorgeous Sailing Barge Will last night. My excitement about Tower Bridge opening for this beautiful and historic vessel was fully warranted – it was a pleasure to behold. That was followed by dinner below deck in the beautifully restored dining area, a very intimate venue. All the crew were fabulous and I would wholly recommend it as a venue for a very special party. Thank you so much to you all.”

Michelle Stubbs, Private Client

“Please could you pass on my sincere “thank you” to the team on the Dutch Master on Sunday.  The Captain, Nick and the rest of the staff supported me in making it a great evening.   Lots of fun was had by all, particularly due to the professionalism of the staff on board.

David Farage, BMD Architects

“Thank you so much to all involved.  It was a fantastic day.  All the boat crew and serving staff were really helpful and the food was top notch.  Lots of compliments from other guests.   The weather held out and our photographer got his shot from on top of the wheelhouse at the end.
Once again, thanks for all the organising skills.”
