“Well worth it!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

We travelled, as a family of 4, from The Tower of London to Westminster Pier. Excellent trip, comfortable, good viewing of riverside sites, excellent commentary (given with an appropriate Cockney accent!), plenty of room/seats etc and a good provision of drinks and light snacks.

“Great way to see the sights”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Not liking boats I was very nervous, but once on it was fab!
We went as far as The Tower of London and back, saw far more than on foot and the commentary was excellent. We were fortunate that it was a gorgeous hot sunny day and were able to enjoy the breeze.
Def go again but next time would do the longer cruise to Greenwich.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

A brilliant day to end a busy day of sightseeing. Reasonable price for a relaxing boat trip. Try and sit next to the edge for an uninterrupted view.

“GREAT RIDE, GREAT VIEWS”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We were in Greenwich and decided to use our LONDON PASS for the hop on hop off boat ride up the Thames. We rode from Greenwich all the way to Westminister. It was high tide and the views were outstanding. The crewmember's off the cuff tour was outstanding! It was a great and relaxing way to break up the day.

We lucked out as when we approached Tower Bridge the bridge opened!
