The crew for our cruise was very helpful and knowledgeable. The game us a bit of background information about all important (and not so important) buildings along the river. We did the full trip from Westminster pier to Greenwich pier.

The commentary on this cruise is brilliant, informative, humerous and informal. Absolutely brilliant, enjoyed every moment. A great way to see the landmarks and enough detail given to add to the experience.

I traveled with my family today. It is the 2nd time I took it within one week. I feel it is a good overview trip to London. You will be able to have a quick view if ALL landmarks, plus some histories. You could get discounts, if u have day pass. Highly recommended!

My husband and I took the 30 minute boat ride with City Cruises from Westminster Bridge to Tower Pier one day while we were visiting London last week Aug 16-22, and had a wonderful time! Our Captain was great and turned out to be a fantastic guide who offered interesting narration along the way and many colorful stories about London... More

I've just read another mans Review and he says it all, food fantastic entertainment amazing, staff wonderful. The lights and sights of London are amazing. We went on Friday the 22nd August for my 50th Birthday. Everything was incredible. Well worth the money. There were five of us and we all loved it. Would definitely go on another.

After visiting Ripleys Believe it or Not, we decided to spend the rest of the day on a Thames Cruise. Although we have done this several times, each cruise has a different commentary which is always very interesting. The weather was beautiful and you see London as you could never see it by foot or public transport. There is a... More

A ride from Westminster Pier to Tower Bridge lasts for around 45 minutes and, if you are lucky like me, you will get a really good, witty crew member/guide who will make the trip an even better experience (because, to be honest, riding on the Thames itself is a wonderful thing), being incredibly funny and knowledgeable at the same time....
