The cruise was safely run and the skipper was uber friendly and provided an excellent running commentary of local land marks and their historical relevance. Well worth the money and the best way to see a vast array of London's historical sights whilst saving your legs for a walk around the rest. A big thank-you to the skipper for his support and recognition of the RNLI. If you ever venture North to the Mersey may I return the drink.

I booked this cruise for myself, my wife, 2 daughters (12 and 15) and their friend. The booking process and boarding process was very easy and the team on the boat were friendly and helpful. We all really enjoyed it and the commentary about the landmarks, and the humorous way this was done, made it very interesting and memorable. Next time we book we will go to Greenwich I think as well...

We booked this boat trip to get from Westminster to the Tower Bridge stop. Due to agenda items we couldn't make a longer trip to Greenwich, but we would have liked to. We will definitely book a trip there next time we go. Riding a boat is a very pleasant experience, especially when you have spent days touring London, it is a moment of tranquility, rest and also means getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. And the views of London are unique. We went before our time, and they let us in with no problem. You just have to show the ticket on your mobile to the people who are on the dock. It was very easy to find the entrance, there is no loss.
