We really enjoyed this tour. A great way to see London and an easy way to experience different parts of town. The tour guide was very funny with lots of interesting tidbits. The boat was clean and really large so you didn't feel too cramped. The hop-on hop-off part makes it convenient to use the cruise as sort of a taxi while you take your time getting around.

Great trip on hop on hop off .Entertaining commentary in an accent straight out of fools 'n 'orses. Would have expected some pecuniary advantage from booking on line .. Not the case... Same price. Advise taking the earliest trip to allow time for stop offs. Suggest walking the route the next day... Start with theTate Modern which is amazing and walk past Tower bridge then on to The Mayflower pub for lunch. A Three mile stroll.. Rotherhithe station is 3 mins from pub onJubilee line for return trip.

This excursion was great! City Cruises personnel were friendly and knowledgeable. Boats had good facilities and were on time. In fact, we used this service again on our own!

Our boat had a great first mate that really gave good information on London and history of the area and the river. Got off in Greenwich and spent the afternoon there. Wish we would have had more than one day

This was one of our favorite activities while in London. It was a great way to see London from a different perspective and allowed us to get off our feet for a while! Fantastic experience!

Confortable, punctual, and interesting. The guides that entertain the visitors are a mixture of a professional actor and a sailor that is, they are able to invent the most improbable stories and make them sound realistic. This makes the trip even funnier than expected!

A very enjoyable boat ride, on board staff very knowledgable and provided commentary. It only offers four stops but that will take a day or more to do.

Great choice to get an overview of the city from the river. The line for the ticket exchange for the voucher is very long, be prepared to wait unless you can get tickets in advance and return for your boarding time. There is a guide on the boat who is knowledgeable about the scenery and historical points of interest. There are bathrooms onboard, a bar to get drinks and snacks. Bring your own snacks and cold drinks to save money and waiting in line. The boats are packed. You can literally get off at various bridge points of landing and/or get back on another boat if you want to visit that area/location. Ticket is good for 24hours. You can of course just get a simple ride from one location to another for a different price, this is used as a part of the transportation system of the city. If you go all the way to the end, Greenwich, be aware that there is a couple hour lag time in the return trip. If you want to spend time visiting and eating in that area, plan ahead. There is some scenery on the way, but it takes about 4 extra hours of your day. Otherwise, get off at the last landing point before this trip around the bend and to Greenwich. There is the Royal Naval Academy museum, and a pub attached, other restaurants throughout the city and clotted cream ice cream vendors, along with street musicians.
Also at the end in Greenwich, and at the end of the return trip back to starting point, there is an announcement for gratuity if you like, then, someone literally stands with a bucket as you walk off the boat. Didn't like that. Overall, this is worth the value. Get your bearings for the sites and then return for your visit/tour of each location you like.

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.

Really great way to get acquainted with the city. Boats run frequently up and down the Thames and on/off is easy. We did this our first day just to keep moving after the long flight. Worked because by the time we finished and got back to the hotel, we passed out from exhaustion.
