Meet your guide and board your river boat at Tower Pier. After a 30-minute cruise along the River Thames, you will reach Greenwich. Discover its remarkable maritime history and the famous Greenwich Meridian (0° longitude), home to Greenwich Mean Time. After enjoying a tasty two-courses pub lunch, stroll around the town center, where you'll come across one of London’s best markets and many authentic shops. See where the ‘Cutty Sark’ is situated, a tea clipper from the 19th century and now a museum in dry dock by the river.

As you carry on walking with your knowledgeable guide, you'll see the Royal Naval College, an architectural masterpiece of Maritime Greenwich and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Next you’ll encounter the Trinity College of Music on your way to Greenwich Park, located on a prominent hill, thus allowing a spectacular overview of London. At the top of the hill are situated the Royal Observatory and the Greenwich Meridian where you can have some amazing photo opportunities.

Nearby is also the National Maritime Museum. Here you can admire (or visit at your own expense) one of the most famous museums in the United Kingdom, displaying the history of the English Navy and an exhibition based on the life of Lord Horatio Nelson.
The historic buildings form part of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, also incorporating the Royal Observatory and 17th-century Queen's House.

Relax on your cruise back where you can comfortably enjoy a great view of the Docklands, once part of the Port of London with its old warehouses and boat yards, which have now been redeveloped principally for commercial and residential use boasting some incredible properties and luxury flats.

See the Millennium Dome, completed in 1999 to celebrate the new Millennium, then take a glimpse at Canary Wharf, a major business district containing many of the UK's tallest buildings, including the second-tallest, One Canada Square. Then turn around and see the highest tower in Britain, the 1017 feet (310 meter) high Shard, until your boat reaches the Westminster Pier, where your tour ends.
