Was such a great activity to do and loved it. I did this as a surprise for my partner and she loved it. Getting to the pier was very easy and got on at a later time than had booked but was absolutely fine. It does say you can get on at any time on that day.

Fabulous experience and very reasonably priced. We had booked online so didn’t have to queue at the ticket office. We hopped on the boat at Westminster Pier and had return tickets to Greenwich. We were entertained and very impressed with the tour guide commentary both ways. We learnt a lot about London that we didn’t know and seeing London from the river was quite a unique experience. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough.

Good overall trip. The host was great and kept customers entertained with his funny sense of humor! Wheelchair access which was great and there was enough room to maneuver around the boat if needed. Great experience. Only one negative. No parking nearby for wheelchair users. So if you have a disability and require easy access to the boat, think twice before booking this trip. There is quite a distance to walk to access entry to the boat. There is no drop off parking nearby.
