We got 20% off with a map that we had from our last visit to London making the journey up towards Tower Bridge a bargain. It was quite a nice day so we sat outside. It was busy so we had to choose a side to sit on, we knew from our last visit which side had the most things... More

Even with poor weather the cruise was enjoyable. It seemed to go by very quickly. We enjoyed the food, sights, and chatting with the people around us. Very pleasant atmosphere.

This river cruise was given to us for free upon booking a city tour with the Big Bus group. We got off the bus, took the river cruise up to Greenwich and back to the same stop to continue with the bus tour. The boat served hot / cold drinks plus snacks. All good and very reasonable. Documentary on board... More

I booked and paid for the "Afternoon Tea" cruise through the company website in early October. Upon arrival, my boat was overbooked, my wife and I were sent off with little apology, and I have yet to be reimbursed (I was told by the manager that my credit card would be reimbursed right away). I have sent the company several... More

We would recommend this afternoon tea cruise to anyone. The staff were welcoming and friendly. There was plenty of afternoon tea for the four of us and endless tea and coffee. The food on offer was far better than some high quality hotels we've tried. The captain's commentary was funny and informative. All in all we really enjoyed the whole... More

My partner and I took the circular cruise from Tower Pier to Westminster and back on Monday. Was a lovely round trip. Great service by the lady in the bar, I think her name was Victoria ? Very friendly, helpful and good knowledge when I was asking some questions. Also the Captain Jamie made us laugh out loud with the... More

We had a 2 for 1 voucher which made it really good value. We picked the boat up at the Tower of London to Greenwich, the commentary was very good and the commentator very knowledgeable. There was plenty of room and it was suitable for disable guests. It's definitely worth going on and a p,peasant way to let your feet... More

Booked a half price offer on virgin experiences. Worked out about £9 each for two Adults. We got the boat from Tower Hill to Greenwich and then later from Greenwich to Westminster. We really enjoyed it. The staff were fantastic. Loved the commentary. Not sure I would pay full price if only using once or twice as we did, but... More

I booked the London Showboat Dinner Cruise because I wanted to see the sites along the Thames in the evening when everything is lit up. From the time you step on the boat the staff is attentive to your every need. The food was amazing, but nothing can beat the gorgeous views of London at night. My only complaint is... More
