Worth it just for the spectacular views of the city from the river. The chat from the copilot was very informative and also good fun.

We went just as dusk was falling so saw the buildings lit up, so attractive. There are so many iconic buildings one can see from the river. The city skyline was impressive. There was an informal commentary in English. Highly recommended.

I recommend you take the Thames river cruise up to Greenwich. This is worth the price and you will enjoy the marvelous views you get from the river. Once you arrive at Greenwich, get off the boat and take time to walk up to the meridian, its a beautiful place and you get a great view of the city!

It was the first time I had a Thames Cruise, and I enjoyed very much. My boat was the "Silver Bonito", and our host was absolutely incredible. Told us everything with precision and English sarcasm! Love it every minute. Remember to get well dressed. It is cold in Thames river.

Interesting trip down the river but far too long to Hampton Court - 3 hours. Suggest not booking a return tickerty. Sail one way only and taking the bus back as we did.

It was cold and windy but our boat was enclosed. Our guide was knowledgeable and the trip gave us a perspective we could never get on land.

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.
