We had a great day - this boat trip worked out really well for us as we wanted to experience a boat trip along the Thames but also wanted to look at some of the London attractions. This particular trip enabled us to spend a few hours in Greenwich before getting a boat back to Westminster.

Brilliant trip from start to finish. Absolutely amazing to ride down the Thames seeing all the magnificent buildings and sights along the way. You can sit indoors or on the open deck if weather permits. The audio from the guide was incredibly informative and also very humorous. He made me laugh so much with his comments and story telling. The boat journey from Westminster to Greenwich was an hour and the boat was very smooth. Excellent value for money and quicker than any other transportation in London!

We had pre-booked and although a chilly day we sat outside and pleased we did as it was so easy to take in all the sights on both sides of the Thames. Our guide was very knowledgable and made his commentary detailed and lighthearted. We did the return trip having embarked at Greenwich for lunch. The wasn’t any commentary on the return and that was not a problem for us as we had the one on the outward trip but would be worth knowing for anyone doing a single trip from Greenwich.
