It was a splendid sight touring London through Thames river with the impressive iconic buildings on both sides of the river. I am sure this river might have been London's heartbeat just like Egypt and the Nile River. Magnificent bridges like the Towe bridge, historic and elegant buildings like the Westminster abbey, big Ben, the shard, Shakespeare...., etc., and lots... More

Nice change of pace from walking to all the sites. Cheesy, but very British commentary. Takes you right to "Tower of London"

Booking was made prior to our visit to London, I was rather confused by the internet timetable so a phone call was necessary, which was useful. Chap at the other end of phone extremely helpful and polite. Arrived from the underground to Westminster Pier, turn left about 10 steps and onto the boat. A few with double layers, but ours... More

Great to do when those legs tire from all the walking around London. The Thames has an interesting history and depending on the commentary, the river's past comes alive. Being able to travel under the Tower Bridge is pretty special and viewing all the old and new buildings whilst cruising slowly by provides some excellent photo opportunities. Even better if... More

From Westminster Pier to Greenwich this a very informative trip. The commentary was great and there is an option on some boats to continue to the Thames Barrier for a couple of pounds more. Really enjoyed St. Katherine's Lock.

A good experience with some nice views as one would expect. Great value with the London Pass. Not clear on the stations though, we expected to continue to Greenwhich but with it being after 4pm we didn't... we just turned around and went back to where we had just come from!

This is a great way to see some of the sights of London from a different perspective on the Thames. We went on a one way trip from Westminster pier to Greenwich and continued onto the Thames barrier. It cost £9.30 for the trip with an oyster travelcard. You could buy a return journey but the commentary would just be... More

We love the water anyway, but seeing London from the river was more than just relaxing, it was quite an historical perspective of London in days gone by. To see the Globe Theater, the London Bridge, Parliament etc from the river...you can only imagine how the city operated in days gone by. Very enjoyable.

This is the way to see the sights in London for the most part. Plenty of picture opportunities, slow pace on the river. Very relaxing.
