What people are saying about Tate Modern

Michael was an amazing tour guide (although he did say he wasn’t official and just a member of the boat crew). He made everyone feel safe and added some great commentary along the ride. Would definitely book again as we go a great view of either side of the Thames!

Had a lovely time in the cruise. Staff very helpful getting elderly relatives off and on the vessel. Good commentary from crew too, pointing out the important buildings along the way. Thank you!
