This was great fun and gave us a wonderful way to get a view of the city. I would do this again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend it.

This is a good way to get the lay of the City if you are unfamiliar with London. An unexpected surprise was how much there was to see in Greenwich. We almost did not get off the boat but ended up spending over two hours sightseeing and eating lunch. This might be something to do your first day in London so you have an idea where things are and what you might want to see.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This is a easy and convenient way to first get the lay of the land, and then to decide which spots to visit. It is also a nice way to spend a couple of hours taking in the beauty of London. I highly recommend this.

One of the best things to do. Go on by the London Eye and went up and down the river before we decided what and where we wanted to go. Really enjoyed the narrative given while traveling the river.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great way to get oriented to London. We went directly to Greenwich and spent most of the day there. grab the first boat to get the most out of your trip!

Very easy to get tickets without queuing. Had to queue for boat but not too long. Worth purchasing in advance. Recommend.

We had a relaxing time on this river cruise. It was informative and was a good beginning to our tour of London. A great adventure to do after coming from the airport. No time to waste when time is limited to see London!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was a great way to see the highlights of London. Our family went all the way to Greenwich which was very neat to see, we spent a good portion of the day there exploring around and had a couple adult beverages in an old pub. We would not have done this if we did not purchase this pass. We worked our way back into London ending at Westminster pier, you definitely have enough time to see everything in one day with this pass.
