A leisurely way to see the River Thames - the boat glides along slowly with an informative commentary - which in some places can be repetetive - but worth the money and worth a trip up the Thames if you are not in a hurry

This new years eve my friends and I decided to go on a river cruise. We were promised a fun night with dinner, drinks and to bring in the new year opposite the houses of parliament (where one would presume there'd be a good view of the fireworks?). A view perhaps similar to the one advertised on the website? What... More

We were the last Ferry to Greenwich so the sun was setting as we docked thereby making our return journey... More

We took the boat from Westminster to the Tower in the early evening, it was the perfect time for a trip on the river. We had a fantastic view of the Tower Bridge as well as all the other sights along the way, including "the ugliest building in London" (according to our guide), plus the Globe Theatre and St Paul's...

I was sceptical at first thinking what can be so special about going on boat and sightseeing well I'm glad that I was wrong cos you can actually see so much more!!which bus tours or walking won't give you!

This was a really great experience, especially with the commentary. The views are brilliant and the information was entertaining. We took three trips in two days and the one after dark was fabulous!
