Me and my Partner booked the Evening showcase experience. We booked for a weekday evening, we requested window seats and were pleasantly surprised when we were led to our table at the window which we were slightly surprised with as we were of the last to board. We were handed a glass of fizz as we arrived and as we... More

We booked a family rover ticket to cruise the Thames and jump off where we liked. The speed of the boat is perfect for sightseeing and together with the humorous commentary by the 'Mate' Paul made this a great afternoon. Good value, entertaining, friendly. Great way to get Greenwich to Westminster and sightsee! Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to sightsee... More

I purchased the London Pass during our most recent trip. It was a great value and it included this cruise. After talking the hop-on hop off buses and then walking and doing our own sight seeing, this was a very welcome opportunity and perspective from the water's edge.

See London from river and get different perspective ; not something to do if you are constantly moaning about cold or wind but wrap up and enjoy trip down Thames as part of your London trip; really made change from queues and inside exhibitions

This was a highlight of a half term break in London. We purchased a family 24Hr Rover for £37 and were able to use Tesco Day Out Vouchers which made this very good value. We embarked at Westminster Pier and head for Greenwich. As it was a very cold day we stayed inside but occasionally ventured to the top deck... More

Wonderful Christmas present from my partner. It was a quick and relaxing way of seeing the sights in London with a glass of wine in your hand! The food was lovely, however there is no choice. We had chicken in mushroom sauce with veg, which was nice but it was lucky that me and partner both liked that kind of... More
