Lovely river trip, the running commentary very informative & amusing!

Great day out on the river trip from Westminster to Greenwich & back. The on board commentary was very informative & made the trip all the more enjoyable. Unfortunately had to queue for nearly an hour to board the boat for the return journey, not sure if this is usual as we weren't anticipating a delay & there was no explanation given. Just to mention as well that there are no loos at the dock so be prepared! Overall a great day out regardless & excellent value for money, would recommend.

A lovely tour, with excellent commentary!

We chose to sit up top on the boat, to get unobstructed views. If you do so, be sure to wear a hat and sunscreen (or being an umbrella on a rainy day). We passed by old and new, from the Tower of London to the London Eye and the skyline of modern buildings. The narration by the captain was excellent! Come prepared to leave an optional tip. We got off in Greenwich, where we saw the Maritime Museum and the Prime Meridian! Afterwards, we were able to get home by the Tube.

Enjoyed this trip and it was very informative

We enjoyed this cruise down the Thames very much. The boat was comfortable and clean with toilet facilities and also refreshments if required. The crew were courteous and friendly and helpful on boarding and disembarking to those who were not so agile. The commentary was funny and engaging and was also very informative, which made the trip very interesting. We loved it and next time we visit London, plan to do another cruise, just for the fun of it.

A very enjoyable cruise, efficiently run and well worth the money

I took my 85 year-old-father on this cruise as a birthday outing and he thought the whole thing was wonderful. The boat was comfortable and the commentary both informative and entertaining. Organisation was first-rate. Highly recommended.

Fantastic cruise which exceeded our expectations

Everything worked perfectly. The guide was excellent - his knowledge of the landmarks and humour made the trip. Everybody in our party found something out about London that they hadn’t known before. Highly recommended.
