One of the best ways to see London from a different perspective is a trip down the Thames river on one of the many Riverboats. Most of the major landmarks can be seen from the boat and I love the opportunity to be able take good photographs from the top deck. The narrative is often done in more than language... More

What a lovely way to see London from another angle. Areas that are not visible by foot, underground or bus become very interesting and it is such a calm and peaceful way to see them with the option of getting off and on at different locations. Thoroughly recommended and very reasonable.

We used it on two occasions and just loved it. Speedy and a nice alternative to public transportation, especially during rush hours. Very recommended.

We sailed from Westminster to Greenwich with City Cruises, lovely spacious boat, the young man doing the commentary the whole of the route was a delight. He was friendly, funny and very informative

Second time on the Red Rover and it did not disappoint. It will be the choice of transport on my next trip to Tower and Greenwich. Red Rover is a bit more expensive than clipper, but you get a charismatic waterman guiding you through the sites and most importantly roof seats which makes a change from travelling via underground. The... More

Took this trip by way of reaching Kew Gardens as opposed to the train - a wonderful, pleasant & relaxing journey it was. Very good price & lucky with the weather, however there is seating undercover should it rain. Good toilet facilities & drinks, tea/coffee/alcoholic, which is nice. Only downside was we couldn't here all the dialogue from the skipper... More

Used this service as a way of getting to the East end of London (stops at the Cutty Sark) and was amazed at how knowledgable the skipper was! Gave a full commentary all the way up the river (from the London Eye) about all the wonderful buildings lining the Thames such as the Tower of London and the pub where... More
