What You Can Expect

River Thames Sunset Sightseeing Cruise

River Thames Sunset Sightseeing Cruise

Hop aboard your River Thames sightseeing boat in the early evening, and set sail from London’s Westminster Pier. Perfectly set up for a spot of evening sightseeing, your boat boasts a spacious open-air deck and window-side seats in the saloon below. Before sitting down, help yourself to the selection of colorful canapés on offer and grab a glass of sparkling wine. Then simply relax, listen to live music and watch the sun set on London.

Heading east in the direction of Greenwich, cruise down the River Thames passing all the top London attractions that frame its famous riverbanks. Pass the prestigious Houses of Parliament, where London’s politicians plan their daily dealings, and catch sight of Big Ben – the much-loved clock tower that dominates the district of Westminster.

The ever-popular London Eye sits on the south side of the river, close to Shakespeare’s Globe, the lovingly reconstructed Elizabethan playhouse. As your Sundowner boat twists its way around the bends of the Thames, watch out for a cluster of iconic sights around London Bridge. See the gravity-defying Shard building that stands at 1,016 feet (310 meters) tall, alongside sites steeped in history like the Tower of London.

Cruise past Canary Wharf, the skyscraper village where London bankers do their daily trading, before seeing the grand Naval College and Cutty Sark boat at Greenwich. Your boat will turn around at this point, and start meandering its way back to Westminster where your tour ends – perfect for you to catch any sights that you missed first time ‘round!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was fab. They weren't stingy on the canapés, the service was great, the bar reasonably priced. We also got the benefit of seeing the sights in both the light and then lit up which was beautiful. Bring a brolly in case of rain as the view from up top is a million times better but not covered.

Wonderfujl beginning to our stay in London. Lovely sunset views, wonderful appetizers and the champagne just topped it off. Highly recommend this tour to anyone especially if it is your first day after a long international flight.
We met a British couple who were delightful and very informative about what we were passing by. We were in the cabin part of the boat. I think there was some kind of explanation on the top deck.

My group had loads of fun on the cruise. We got to see a so many London landmarks from a different perspective along the river. The food and drink was very good, and everyone aboard was having a marvelous time. Would highly recommend this tour for a relaxing end to a busy day of sightseeing.

The cruise was absolutely fantastic. It will bring you further up until Canary Wharf. The view on that day is magnificent with perfect sunset to enjoy. They will serve you with drink and snacks throughout the cruise. Will definitely recommend to others,

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2013

this was such a suprsie fun trip for us!!! we LOVED it! and was by far our favorite thing we did in London. we did it the 1st day we arrived and even though it wasn't very sunny out for a sunset (that is London for you...over cast and cloudy)...it didn't matter at all. most of the people on board were so cold..we all stayed below deck (but there were plenty of seats above deck to sight see and take pictures). downstairs they offer drinks and complimentary appetizers (was not expecting that) and some live light jazz music. we loved it and would definitly do it again!
