This is simply a bus on the river. We were told there was commentary, but nothing could be heard. We complained & were told to speak to Pier Manager.....waste of time. Would not recommend.....also very disappointed in their lack of customer service......

It was a clear day and the views were amazing. I’m afraid of heights and was okay with this experience. The capsules travel at a good pace. There were only 8 of us on the ride. Easy to move around and take photos. It’s a bit pricey for a 30 minutes. We did buy the skip the queue

Make sure you get a live river guide - they know the water - are very entertaining and make the cruise. See some neat sites and the Thames is a great route. Be dressed right as the water is usually a bit chillier . We loved it!

City cruises is a great way to travel across London quickly while taking in some sights along the way. We purchased tickets online before we arrived to save time. Our family got on the crowded Westminster Pier and went to Tower Bridge pier stop, saving us lots of time and steps.
