I was skeptical about a boat ride but a great way to get oriented to London and see many of the sites without navigating the traffic of London even though I've visited before. The boat schedules were frequent enough that there was no waiting to get on or off the boat.
Very nice cruise. We got on at Tower of London and off at the London Eye. It was so easy to hop back on at the Eye and cruise back to the Tower for our Tube ride back to the hotel.
The whole cruise was most enjoyable enabling views of London you can't have any other way, the hop on hop off was a real bonus feature, we would recommend this cruise to everyone.
This was fun. We went up the river to the bridges and the Houses of Parliament and the commentary from the skipper was fun and informative. We did not take the downriver cruise because we wanted to go through the Tower of London but we have no reason to believe that the downriver cruise would not be equally well-done. We can recommend this cruise as a fun and easy way to see London along the river.

It was very good and everything ran smoothly, we took our French Family on it and they loved it
Loved this boat cruise. It was easy access to some of the great locations, and having a timetable when the next is coming helps us plan each station. Highly recommend this cruise. Enjoyed the stop at Greenwich immensely.
The round trip was definitely worth with the commentaries from the skipper of the boat about the history of the river.
We had a wonderful time. We went on the London Eye first and then cruised down to Greenwich where we hopped off to have lunch and see the sights. We then went back to Tower Bridge where we were staying. It was a very good way to see some of the sights and will be back.
I had such a great time on this cruise! I had a nasty bought of jet lag (flew in from New York, got no sleep on the plane), took a nap at the hotel, and spend the rest of the afternoon joyriding up and down the Thames taking photos of London's greatest sites! The best part is, this voucher was valid for 24 hours, so I came back and took the longer cruise on Day 2 to Greenwich. Very beautiful and unique way to see the city, from the water, and I'd definitely do it again!
We were extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the boat and the facilities. The commentary was intelligent and informative; the voice was pleasant and clear but not intrusive. The toilets were first class. We were surprised by the reasonably priced refreshments. We would recommend without hesitation.
It was a sunny day and the trip was very impressive. The boat was not very crowded and I was sitting on top deck where I can see the both banks of the river easily. Most of all, there was a crew member who gave a very good guide commentary about the historical sites along the river. Not only informative, but very humorous. It is definite a lovely trip.
Enjoyed the river hop on off trip the capptain was very good telling us the history and pointing out the places of intrest and it helped that the weather was sunny
A highlight of our trip! We bought this cruise as a way to get our family of four from Westminster to Greenwich. The historical commentary and views were a definite bonus. We were able to learn a lot about the city while relaxing on the upper deck of the boat. Much nicer than navigating the Tube!
Excellent value for money. A beautiful day, great commentary, could not have been more impressed. Highly recommended.
Excellent boat trip, learnt a lot and would definitely do it again.
The best way to feel the river and all monuments around it... Strongly recommended...
Brilliant couple of hours on this tour. Lovely boat, relaxing and comfortable with refreshments.
Good commentary throughout. Definitely recommend.
The rest of the country was flooded but we could not make our trip because there was not enough water in the Thames!!!! Our tickets were OK'd for 3 days later. It was a lovely sunny day and plenty of room on the boat. The commentary was brilliant. It was clear, loud enough and extremely interesting. Our return trip was on a different and more modern boat. The pre-recorded voice used was unable to be heard and we were so pleased that we had not had this boat in the morning. A brilliant day out. Many thanks to all involved.
Thoroughly enjoyed our trip on the Hop on Hop off boat trip.
The crew were friendly, informative and amusing ( even though they do their spiel all day long!)
An excellent way to see London from a different perspective.
Excellent!!!! loved it...very convenient to plan a day around the sights and excellent commentary provided on the boats!
