What You Can Expect

Thames Hop-On Hop-Off River Cruise

Big Ben, London

This flexible day cruise embarks every 40 minutes from four central London piers – Westminster Pier, Waterloo Pier (near the London Eye), Tower Pier and Greenwich Pier. Board at your leisure and grab a seat in the glass-encased saloon or on the open deck. Sip on a hot or cold drink from the full-bar and enjoy panoramic views of the river as you set off. 

Drift in warmth and comfort along the banks of the historic River Thames and discover London’s history through lively onboard commentary. Relax as the boat makes the entire 2.5-hour loop or hop off at any stop – another boat will be along in 20-30 minutes to pick you up. With your flexible pass, hop on and off as many times as you’d like throughout the day to visit iconic landmarks from Westminster to Greenwich and back again!

We enjoyed this tour and would recommend it. We especially enjoyed our time in Greenwich with the village feel and slower pace than London. The tower bridge is awesome and it was fun to see all of the homes along the river. The tour guide did a great job giving tidbits of info along the way. It was a fun way to spend the afternoon!

We had 3 hours spare to spend in London after a trip to Harley Street. I used Viator for the first time and will certainly use again to quickly book a circular hop on hop off river boat trip. The booking service was easy, the price was very good, the staff were friendly and valued our custom and the on-board information was interesting, amusing and overall excellent. I have since learnt of the global trips they provide and will certainly use again. GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY SERVICE.

This was nice. I opted to just stay on the boat the entire ride since i had already seen everything previously. The weather was perfect and the cruise was great!

Got us where we needed to go - on the ride to Greenwich we had a very nice man on board that narrated where we were going, history and funny stories instead of the audio tape that they usually play. He was fantastic and we didn't mind putting something in his bucket that he advertised he had when we departed.

However later on another segment when we were coming back to Westminster Pier we heard some of the same history - but not as good or as much - and again another request for us to give money. At that point it was completely inappropriate and should NOT have been asked for. Everyone was returning after a trip up the river and no further narration was needed. Everyone was tired and zoned out from a full day. Staff on the piers off the boats were less than helpful in Greenwich when trying to find out what line to que up in.
