I thoroughly enjoyed the boat trip, it was well organised, the guys on the boat done a great job commenting on all different aspects of London which was fantastic.
We did this tour on a day with rain. The cruise boat is covered so we could still have an enjoyable afternoon.
The commentary was interesting, and sometime funny. It was enjoyable.
This is one of the best ways to see the City of London and all its monuments from a different, gorgeous angle. The guides were informative and moved us up the river with facts of history and other trivia relating to current times. We started down in Greenwich so we could see the Cutty Sark and then be let off at the last stop at the end of the day so we would be in the City. Getting off at the Tower of London stop was the easiest way to get to the Tower of London because the tube stop is across a busy (ish) street. And, we timed it just right to get to hear Big Ben chime for the 5 O'Clock hour at the last stop up the river near Parliament, Big Ben and across the river from the Eye. I would suggest this as a wonderful way to travel through London.
A great day with amusing documentary. would definitely recommend Enid and Margaret Australia
Excellent Cruise!!! The crew was entertaining as well as knowledgeable of the historical sites we could explore. We did go on our own a bit then returned to the boat and finished the cruise. It was easy to find and the price was pretty reasonable. Having our tickets before we arrived in London helped keep us away from long lines!!! Even though it was late April, London, was still a busy city.
A very pleasant trip with interesting commentary full of facts and anecdotes; convenient for a trip to Greenwich.
It was a rather cold day but my friend and I really enjoyed our trip on the River Cruise. We went up to Greenwich and visited the Cutty Sark, had lunch and then returned on the catamaran. The only disappointing thing from my point of view is that we were not offered any headphones and we could not hear the commentary which I would have enjoyed, as the craft was filled with teenagers who were making a lot of noise.
We had an excellent day, hopping on and off the cruise boat, in fact we were reluctant to 'hop' off as the boat was so warm and cosy on a cold March day!
Great trip and excellent value for money. I'm a Londoner and still found the commentary first class and learnt a lot about my home City.
Great day out, well worth the price! If the weathers good it makes the day even better!!
My wife, grandaughter and I enjoyed our time on the Thames so much. The 2 gentlemen who looked after us during our outward journey to Greenwich were brilliant. They asked us if we would like them to point out landmarks as we went by or would we rather they kept quiet. All on board agreed to have the running commentary. We were so glad that we did. Their local knowledge was second to none and their delivery was very entertaining. They found out for us that the Tower Bridge was due to open up at 4.45pm to allow a vessel to pass up the river. We would not have seen that had it not been for your 2 guys. On our return trip to Westminster we made sure that it was the same 2 guys.We enjoyed our trip so much that it will become a regular feature of future visits to London.
Great views from water ..fun to get off and explore Grenwich then get back on for return trip to Tower Bridge
Well worthwhile. A great chance to see London as far as Greenwich - the onboard commentary was excellent. Spend some time in Greenwich it is a wonderful place to have lunch, walk under the Thames (literally) and see the sights like the Cutty Sark and the Naval College - make it a whole day activity.
This was a good way to introduce ourselves to England. We hopped off at the Tower of London and hopped back on for the trip back to hotel. The public transportation in London is amazing and simple to navigate, so getting to and from the river is easy. The boat had covered part if you did not want to be in the direct sun. Unfortunately we were on a boat with about 20 school children and their chaperones would not tell them to settle down, so we could not hear the tour guide very well. They disrupted everyone on the boat. Welcome to disfunctional parenting in the 21st century.
Really good, fun experience. Bought as a gift for a friend's birthday and it was much appreciated.
Really fun to hop on and off. We went all the way to Greenich and back. Beautiful trip on the River Themes. Overall it takes about an hour and a half. All the boat staff seemed to really enjoy their jobs. Good to hear history from them and they are all very funny!
Excellent service. The boats were of a good condition and regular. The tour guide made the trip very interesting. I will definately use this service again as it was also good value for money.
