Me and my partner on our last night did the tour. We thought we had already walked and seen everywhere needed but we were wrong. I’ve did tours in NYC and other major cities but this one was the best and it was down to the workers. I can’t remember there names but the three who were involved were great. They were so helpful and informative it was just 10/10. They really educated everyone about London and it was amazing. If you’re here short term or long term it’s still a must!

A lovely activity to do as a couple or large group. You spend the first section of the journey inside the boat having afternoon tea, then the last half you have the opportunity to go on to the top of the boat for a guided tour along the Thames. One thing that could be improved is to have tea pots on the table so you can have another cup when you want rather than waiting for the waiters to come back around.

This was not just a walk through London. This was an amazing and magical Walk through London! The group was not too big and our amazing Tourgide Hagrid (John) added some extra magic to the tour. Told us lots of interesting stuff and showed us around with great enthusiasm. If you doubt to do this tour, just do it.

Nice trip to take to see all the riverside landmarks. Very informative & funny! Boat was clean & comfy too!

Not a great water traveler but this was excellent from start to finish.
