What to expect
Book your required ticket and on the day, board your comfortable cruise boat at Westminster Pier at leisure. Settle on the open-air or indoor deck as you wish, and then sit back and enjoy the panoramic views of London’s skyline and waterfronts as you cruise eastward to Greenwich. During your journey, keep your camera ready as you sail past a string of top London attractions, including the Tower of London, Shakespeare’s Globe, and Tower Bridge. Admire the sights and learn their stories and secrets, as well as the history of the Thames River, via the entertaining live onboard commentary. On arrival at Greenwich, take the opportunity to explore its many attractions (own expense), perhaps visiting the Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich Market, or Royal Greenwich Observatory as you wish; all of them within strolling distance of the pier. If you’ve booked a return ticket, catch a return cruise boat from Greenwich when your sightseeing is done.

Worth every penny. It gives a different perspective of Westminster, London and Greenwich from the water.

Great commentary
Aug 2021
Last week, my family and I came on one of the Thames sightseeing trips to Greenwich and back, we all thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the commentary was excellent, not only informative but very funny (our favourite joke was the one about getting married on the London Eye at the top point and then it being all down hill from there! – even my kids found it funny). It was nice to hear a proper London accent as well!

Spoiled somewhat by the heavy rain.but excellent way to see the attractions.
Aug 2021
Purchased a return ticket at Westminster Pier with the intention of stopping at Greenwich to visit the National Maritine Museum,Cutty Sark and take in Greenwich Market but heavy rain put paid to that plan.
Still enjoyed seeing most of Londons main attractions from the Thames and a few drinks from the onboard bar.Disembarked early on the return journey at Tower Bridge as i found the one hour cruise each way a little too long because of rain.
Boats leave every 40 monutes and a free souvenir guide is provided but didnt need it as an excellent and amusing guide gives a running commentary during your trip.

Excellent - Do It

Excellent way to see the main sights of the city.

The guide was brilliant and gave you an amazing insight into the history and all the sights. He even pointed out Dame Judi Dench's house.

We did the roundtrip from Westminster down to Greenwich and back and got a deal on Groupon so was a bargain.

Make sure you do it

Thames river sightseeing.
A good way to see the sights of the London skyline, all in one go and from a different view to normal. £36 for a family for about ~25mins is a bit steep really (it was 40mins from walking on to getting off but with 3 stops at other docks) but its fairly memorable and the 'guide' was good and funny at pointing out things.
As a tip, do the full end to the river, we got off at tower bridge and most people didnt so think we chose the wrong option!

Great boat trip
This was a great boat trip for the price. We saw an offer on Groupon for the trip so only paid about £20 for a family of 4 so it was great value for money for the return trip. As others have said, you either need to get on at Westminster or Greenwich or you have no real chance of getting a seat upstairs. We got a boat mid-afternoon and stayed on at Greenwich for the return journey although you can hop on and off all day for the same price if you start earlier. There was live commentary which was amusing and informative. There’s a good bar (although we didn’t use it) which is cash only according to a notice.
