Fantastic river trip down the Thames with Alfie and his crew. My Partner was sceptical as he’s not a fan of boats but ended up saying it was the best thing he’d done for a long time. Alfie and his crew mates give an informal commentary pointing out places of interest with a joke thrown in too. Comfortable seats upstairs they don’t cram everyone in like sardines. Lots of warm seats down below too for when it rains. There’s a bar and snacks too.

Nice boat tour with great value for your money. Interesting way to get from Westminster to Greenwich. Would recommend! The commentary was great. The only thing we're not a fan of was the begging for tips. The commentator kept repeating how he guided the tour on a voluntary basis and expected tips even though we booked the tour including commentary, and it was not on a voluntary basis at all.

Very enjoyable trip to Greenwich. Good commentary from the crew with historical and fun facts of places we passed. Hopped off in Greenwich for a walk around and lunch before coming back to Westminster. It's the second time I do this cruise and highly recommend to anyone coming to visit London.
