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!

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.

Myself and my twin grandchildren aged 14 enjoyed every minute of our trip. We decided not to get off at any of the stops but to do the round trip. It was so very enjoyable, comfortable seats, excellent coffee and hot chocolate snacks from the bar and most important the staff. Before we even boarded the staff were so helpful and polite and on board the same, very friendly crew. The young man doing the commentary was very self deprecating but was extremely well informed about everything we saw, extremely amusing and charming. A great trip which we would happily do again.
