Booking online was very easy and we were able to board without any queuing . We chose a round trip and wasn’t planning on getting off at all , but when we arrived at katherines dock we told we had to get off and wait half an hour for another boat to take us back to Westminster. Also , we understood that we could get off at embankment on our return which is incorrect. Hence , our further days plans were rushed. So the company needs to explain everything in more detail. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed it and the commentary on the return journey was much better than the first part. Recommend to check before you board .

The boat was very full as it was in the summer school holidays, and because we didn't arrive a long time before departure the top deck was full. The downstairs did have a bit of a stale smell, and although we could hear that the commentary was interesting and amusing, it was difficult to hear it downstairs, as we had a few fractious children near us. On the return journey we sat up on deck, and we could hear the commentary perfectly, which was informative and funny

Easy booking, easy to find on Westminster pier and easy access to the boat. Did book for 1:40pm but went early as we had finished a previous booking and they allowed us on the 1:00pm boat instead which really helped us out. Fabulous tour and super commentary, was lovely to see London by boat.
