What a wonderful experience! The boat was big enough for all to sit, enjoy and take pictures - there is also a bar downstairs. The tour guide (one of the captains) had some great facts about the sites - we did millennium pier to Westminster) and it’s around 20-25 mins and saw Big Ben, the London eye and many other sites whilst travelling to Westminister. It’s just a lovely tour especially with the wonderful weather we have been having. The tour guide also had a sense of humour which was nice. All round food experience and would highly recommend.

Luckily, in less than half an hour another one left (which we did not understand since ours was the last hour to reserve the activity). Other than that, everything is perfect and the trip is easy and allows you to enjoy and take photos of everything you see, yes, the explanations are in English...
