Thames Hop-On Hop-Off River Cruise

Big Ben, London

The Thames weaves its way through London, with history around every bend. Aboard the hop-on hop-off River Red Rover you'll cruise in comfort and style past London's world-famous landmarks. The boats have open upper decks for great sightseeing and comfortable lower saloons. Relax and enjoy the views, onboard commentary, light refreshments and full bar service as London's famous sights glide by.

The river cruise departs every 40 minutes from Westminster Pier, Waterloo Pier (near the London Eye), Tower Pier and Greenwich Pier (near the Cutty Sark). With just one ticket you may hop-on or off at any of the piers as often as you like throughout the day. The shortest trip between piers lasts approximately 20-30 minutes, while the full round trip takes approximately 2.5 hours.

Wonderful experience. Enjoyed all the sites and tour information.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

The tour was great, especially because we had a really knowledgeable guide who narrated it for us rather than just a recording. Despite buying tickets through Viator, however, we still had to wait in the same line as everyone else - for almost an hour - to trade in the voucher for real tickets. Buying ahead saved us nothing in time.

The weather was excellent which added to the enjoyment. Definitely a very rewarding way to view parts of London - and the commentaries from your Water Boatmen were particularly valued.
No problem issues....
