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....

It was pouring with rain when we took this trip but that did not spoil it. If you are over 60 tell them when you get your ticket you will get a reduction but they don't publicise it. All the boats seem to be quite new and the commentary good.

My wife and went on the cruise this week and were highly impressed. We were asked to be there by 1930 for a 1945 departure and the boat showed up very promptly. We boarded shortly afterwards and were greeted with a glass of champagne as we were shown to our table. The waiting staff were all very friendly and efficient... More

We rode from Westminster to Greenwich. It was a great way to get a feel for London and to see really interesting sights. The guide was informative and humorous.

This is a good way to see the sights along the river but the experience could be better. The free audio guide which should be available in several languages didn't work and our Spanish guest couldn't understand a word the crew member was saying. It was a bit cheeky that he held out a bucket for tips at the end... More

After seeing the Poppies at the Tower of London, we needed to get to the Emirates Airline, so the City Cruise boat trip seemed the best option, especially as the weather was kind to us. We approached a representative about our wheelchair bound friend and she stated that help would be given to board the boat. This is exactly what... More
