Had a great experience getting the river cruise from Greenwich to Westminster bridge. The guide was humorous and kept everyone amused while teaching us a lot and being on the water felt wonderful on a hot summers day

Went on a sunny day and enjoyed the cool breezes on the boat. Our young children enjoyed it too and it's free for under 4s. The spokesman who was guiding the boat tour was fantastic and you get to see alot!
