    What to Expect
    Select the day you wish to take both tours when you book. Then, when the time comes, collect your tickets and make your own way to both the London Eye and the cruise departure jetty.

    London Eye Flight: Travel independently to the London Eye, one of London’s most iconic landmarks, on the south bank of the Thames River, and gaze up at the gigantic structure. Rising 442 feet (135 meters) high, the Eye is one of Europe’s tallest observation wheels and has welcomed an average 3.5 million people a year since opening in 2000.

    Marvel at the panoramas over London’s skyline and admire landmarks such as Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral and more. On a clear day, the views can stretch up to 25 miles (40 kilometers) in each direction, so you’re in for a treat!

    Thames River Sightseeing Cruise: Step onto your comfortable sightseeing boat. Find a spot on the outer, upper deck or the spacious lower saloon, and settle in for your cruise.

    Have your camera ready as you sail by some of London’s best-known sights, and drink in the wonderful views of the river, its bridges and the north and south banks.

    As you sail, listen to the interesting live commentary from the onboard guide. Learn the stories of the landmarks as they roll by.

    Make sure you get a live river guide - they know the water - are very entertaining and make the cruise. See some neat sites and the Thames is a great route. Be dressed right as the water is usually a bit chillier . We loved it!

    My partner and I took a City Cruise from Greenwich to Westminster. I had a free ticket from City Hall for my London Ambassador volunteering in the summer. We picked up the 10.30am boat and were surprised just how busy it was. So get to the pier early if you want to get a seat

    City cruises is a great way to travel across London quickly while taking in some sights along the way. We purchased tickets online before we arrived to save time. Our family got on the crowded Westminster Pier and went to Tower Bridge pier stop, saving us lots of time and steps.

    An amazing time! Vickie our guide was great with her wit and knowledge that was an extra cherry on a great trip! Spontaneous choice but well worth it!

    There was some interesting information on the Thames Tour about the Waterloo Bridge, Parliament and the original site of Shakespeare Theater. But the river was gross. The view from the London Eye was fine but mostly unremarkable.
