The trip was a lot of fun. We had an excellent view of the sites along the river from the open top deck of the boat. The boat captain (?)/guide shared a lot of interesting information about different sites along the way. We were able to hop off at Greenwich and spend several hours there seeing the sites and then hop back on the boat for the trip back to Westminster.

Wonderful. Good facilities (toilets and drinks) on board and had a commentary from 1 of the crew which made to trip interesting. Boarding was easy. Comfy seats with seating outside and inside. Boat went at leisurely pace. Good 2 hour round trip with the option of getting off at any of the stops along the way of Greenwich with return boats every 1/2 hour.

- Easy to reserve/buy seats on the cruise boat - Eventless journey from Westminster Pier to Greenwich Pier - The peerless landscape on both Thames banks was matched by the very informative and humourous comments broadcast over the boat's tannoy by a member of the crew (possibly the Captain) - Nice walk around Greenwich and pleasant lunch in one of the many restaurants - Eventless journey back from Greenwich Pier to Westminster Pier
