We viewed the Thames and London via the river tour. A different perspective to enjoy and make your visit even more memorable.

If you want to see London from a different perspective get on a river cruise. You get to see famous landmarks as well as the growth of the city over the years.

A visit to the city would be incomplete without seeing the Thames river and all the attractions that are dotted along the banks of the river from the Big Ben, the Parliament Building to the London Eye, Tower Bridge and a lot more. Even though the river flows through a major part of the city - the section around Waterloo... More

I have lived in London all my life and can tell you that you don't have to spend money on a cruise to enjoy the Thames. If you are on a budget use whatever map you have and take a walk. There are miles of easy and safe walks along both sides of the river and every stretch is different... More

It is lovely to walk along the banks beside the Thames, and to see it in all different lights. It has such a long, interesting history too!

By taking the river cruise, you can enjoy the river trip and you can see many other interesting attractions like london bridge,tower bridge, big ben, london eye, ...It would be better if you buy a combined tickets for the cruise and london eye in advance to avoid the queues..

Nice way to sit, relax and still see London! We took the cruise from Tower bridge to Westminster and enjoyed the commentary and scenery. Not too crowded and we were able to take great pictures too!

The Thames is one of the most famous rivers in the world. You can walk it's banks, see it from the London Eye or take a cruise on it. There are great river cruises from the pier at the Eye all the way to the O2 stopping at certain piers along the way. This is a great way to see... More

No matter where I am near this river I can never get enough of the views that surrounds it. I always have to go so close to appreciate London. Either up West end or even the doclands, its a must stop for me every time.
