Good value for money and a good way to see the famous landmarks without too many people. Got some great photos. Child friendly. quite relaxing considering we were in the city centre.
Highly recomend a river cruise.

We went on a boat tour using the ticket we got for the original bus tour the day before. We got on the boat at Westminster, and travelled for about an hour and a half to Greenwich, via Tower Bridge. Really informative unofficial "guide" and a lovely way to spend some time, and see London from a different perspective. We could have then got another boat back, but decided to see a bit of Greenwich, then walk under the Thames and get the DLR from the Isle of Dogs back to the City. Weather wasn't great the day we went, but it meant we had the whole top deck to ourselves!

We had a wonderful time on this cruise. For some reason, we were on a smaller and newer boat than the others and it was much better. The lavatory on board was clean. They had a wonderful bar area. The narrative was great and I learned a lot about the city, and the waterfront and its evolution. It was a bit cold on the river, so I recommend taking a hat and scarf, and maybe even gloves – even if it is warm and sunny in the city because it's colder on the River. We took the trip to Greenwich and we loved Greenwich too.

We boarded at the Tower of London. The entire cruise took only a few minutes. Highlights were seeing the HMS Belfast moored on the river and seeing the underside of the Tower Bridge. It is worthwhile.

Booked to go on the river as my husband always wanted to go on a cruise and this is the nearest I will go. It was a great way of seeing London. We cruised first from Westminster to St Catherine's docks. We had a very informative commentary from one of the crew and gave lots of information about the various buildings down the centuries and how the river used to be. We alighted at St Catherine's and was amazed at the beautiful waterfront here. Several little boutique shops and bars and amazing boats/yachts spent an enjoyable couple of hours here. We then re-boarded the boat to go back up river to the houses of parliament. Would recommend this trip to anyone.
