Buyagift have a London Showboat Cruise for Two on offer for £78 (reduced from £156) which includes a 4 course meal, half a bottle of wine each, a welcome glass of fizz on arrival and live entertainment and dancing while taking in the sights as you travel along the River Thames.

The cruise lasts 3 and a half hours, departs on various evenings depending on which month you plan to attend, and the voucher is valid until 29th March 2014. Overall this seems like a great deal to me and nearly all of the reviews I've found online have praised the company and the experience (See clickable link in post number 2 below).

Unfortuanately you can't combine vouchers with this offer, but Topcashback offer cashback of up to 12.6% potentially bringing the price down to £68.17 if it tracks ok.

I bought it last night and didn't have to choose a date.

You're sent an eVoucher or can pay postage a physical voucher (i.e. if being given as a gift) and once you've received it you call the number on the voucher whenever you choose to book your dates.

Me and the missus will be doing this in November for our anniversary and it looks like a great night out!

The menu has to be chosen at the time of booking, not time of voucher purchase. I think you're getting the process confused as you purchase the voucher from Buyagift, and then use the voucher to book the experience - same as all other experience providers such as Virgin, Red Letter Days, Lastminute.com etc...

In your case you'd buy the voucher for your friend and then they'd phone the company whenever they want (before the voucher expires in March 2014) to book their date and make their menu choices.

it doesnr say anything about 39 each
