What You Can Expect

River Thames Sunset Sightseeing Cruise

River Thames Sunset Sightseeing Cruise

Your journey along the River Thames begins in the evening at Westminster Pier where you'll board the ship. Stroll the open-air deck and help yourself to delicious canapés as you embark on a two-hour float along London’s famous waterway. Then find a seat in the indoor saloon, enjoy live jazz music and admire unobstructed views of passing city landmarks at sunset.

Heading first past Westminster, you’ll get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben, followed by the illuminated London Eye and Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a gorgeous Elizabethan playhouse that still runs regular performances. Sip on bubbly wine as your boat cruises under London Bridge and past the Tower of London and the monolithic Shard building – London’s tallest building at 1,016 feet (310 meters) in height.

The final leg of your cruise takes you by Canary Wharf, the Naval College and the striking Cutty Sark clipper ship, one of the remaining three clipper ships from the 19th century. From here, your boat will make its way back to Westminster Pier, where you’ll disembark with plenty of time for dinner or evening activities.

This tour exceeded our expectations. Champagne and light snacks were provided along with great jazz music. The sights as viewed on the Thames are spectacular. A lovely way to see London at night.

This tour was amazing. Started right on time from an easy location. We sat upstairs behind the captains seat and I think that was the best seat on the boat. Coming back we were able to take incredible photos as the sun was setting. The only thing we were not able to see was Parliament and Big Ben light up. But that is due to the time of year and late sunsets. This cruise was the highlight of our trip.

Great service! If you want to surprise someone with a bit of glamour and a sort of different experience through London without spending too much money...this is what you are looking for.

On the evening we took this tour, it had been raining during the day so I was not hopeful we would not have a soggy cruise. To my delight, the sun came out, the live jazz was mellow, the bubbly cold and dry, and the canapes both plentiful and innovative. What a treat to see a world class city from the water and to let the historic landmarks drift by. We got close enough to The Traitor's Gate at The Tower to imagine the terror a condemned prisoner would feel approaching it as well as delighting in The Globe and the vibrant South Bank. We did not have to go down stairs to the bar to replenish drinks as our needs were anticipated by a very attentive staff. I highly recommend this cruise as it takes you out of the often frenetic pace of the city itself.

So I can't really review on the Sunset Sightseeing Cruise because it got canceled at the last minute. We were offered a free upgrade for the Showboat Cruise through the same company City Cruises for the same night and accepted the offer. It was fantastic! We had so much fun. The Showboat Dinner Cruise included Champagne, A half a bottle of wine per person, and a 4 course meal that was absolutely delicious. The entertainer was a singer that did covers and it was very casual as she encouraged us to go take pictures of the surroundings, eat, dance, etc. while she performed and the crowd was all ages. We lucked out and got the free upgrade but since it was one of our favorite nights in London, it was definitely worth the full price.

Great evening of relaxation on the Thames. Drinks and plenty of appetizers available throughout the trip.
Lots of wonderful photo opportunities. With the good weather we were able to stay up in the open air the entire time.
