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.

Really enjoyed the cruise. Even though I’ve lived in London for almost 20 years, today is the first time I’ve been on this cruise and definitely learnt a lot. The crew member who was talking us through made it all the more enjoyable! Waving to people on all the bridges was fun!
