We were given this experience as a Red Letter Days gift and used it on a birthday date. We were made to feel special from the moment we walked in, the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful. The food was second to none, the waiter advised we try the whole menu and share plates, we were not disappointed. When they knew it was my birthday they even brought us a little cake with a candle and icing across the plate saying "Happy Birthday." What a wonderful evening - thank you Theresa and...

This is a fantastic experience for anyone who wants to learn a few facts - delivered with plenty of humour and enthusiasm; and also enjoys a bit of high speed exhilaration! The first half of the trip is taken at a leisurely pace, and the guide makes you feel involved from the off. He was great fun, and I learnt several new things, even though I'm no stranger to London. Once past Tower Bridge, the engines are opened up, and it's a high speed blast along to Canary Wharf with plenty of turns, and opportunities...

I learnt a lot about the different wines, specially the grape varieties. I have not been converted to red wine but at least I now know how to look at it and use my nose to figure out if I am in with a chance of being able to drink it before that first sip. As to white wine, I can now see the different colours involved and understand them. I now feel I could make more of an informed choice when trying new wines and perhaps will not make so many mistakes (although the old favourites will always make...
