We decided to view London from the River Thames and were not disappointed. We purchased our tickets from the ticket booth near the London Eye and was only a short wait before the boat arrived. The commentary was very good clear and audible even at the back of the boat over the engines. Landmarks were pointed out well before we... More

Had a day out in London and bought a ticket on Virgin Experience website for half price. It was a great way to see some of the sights with on board commentary with a sense of humour. We were able to get off at any stop and get back on again as many times as we wanted to. Seeing all... More

We had arrived in London after many hours on a plane from Texas and just wanted to get out and explore London a bit. We had London Pass cards and used them for the citycruises leaving at Tower Bridge/Tower of London. Mid-afternoon, we waited maybe 10-15 minutes in a queue and then were loaded onto the boat for a lovely... More

The Thames river cruise is one of the nicest things to do in London especially if you don't have a great deal of time to explore London by foot. We have taken the cruise from the London Eye to the Tower Bridge pier and other occasions to Greenwich. all worth investigating Along the way you see lots sites like 30... More

Another interesting and informative experience - my only criticism is that it's not long enough. Travelled with young children and we all enjoyed it - would recommend it to all aged visitors. Expand the service and we'll be back!

I love taking this boat along the Thames and stopping to see all of the sights. I've done it twice and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

I chose to take a trip on the Westminster to Hampton Court boat, which lasts about 3 hours; dependent on the tide. This is definitely the best way to see London, and the slow pace allows you to take in the wonderful riverside architecture. The trip is commentated upon by one of the boats crew and his knowledge of the... More

A great way to experience some of the east end and end up in Greenwich. Maritime sites, Royal sites, nice pubs, and the river.
