We opted for the night tour from Battersea to Greenwich. You get a completely different perspective of the city from the water. Our guide Chris was extremely knowledgeable and had a lot of soundbites of local surroundings. The equipment is great and the tour was...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our Big Ben at night trip. The leaders were helpful and had lots of interesting insights about the Thames. The river was beautiful at night and although it was quite hard work by the end it was a superb evening.
