Cruised up & down the Thames, fantastic commentary from Ben the waterman, learnt so much in such an entertaining fashion. All we could say is thanks Ben for a great afternoon. Your poem and info was brilliant.

I went on a cruise to see all the main sites and I loved it! It was great seeing all the sites on a boat whilst taking in all the fresh water air and having drinks whilst listening to the host explain the various sites and attractions. I'll definitely do it again but obviously being on a big boat, the... More

We went on the boat trip from Westminster to The Tower of London. Although this is not a sight seeing cruise one of the crewmen gives an overview of the sights you are passing. We sat downstairs in the cafe area and had a drink and snack (the first time we had stood still all day) while we were floating... More

We had a trip from London bridge to Greenwich and returned to the Tower of London we all enjoyed seeing the river fronts from the river and getting some local knowledge from the captain as we passed.

You must take a cruise on this river. You'll see almost all of London's famous sites. Go from Tower of London to London Eye, or vice versa. Totally worth it and 1,000 times better than taking taxi or the tube!

Kids totally enjoyed this hop on hop off cruise , guides talk you through all the sights and the views from the river was great. This added to the adventure and was well worth the cost....enjoy!
