This was a neat ride up and down the river. You could see the sights and get dropped off at a few more touristy places. The boat was clean, smooth and quick. There's a snack... read more

My first trip on the clipper and will not be my last. The clippers were easy to use, clean spacious and had helpful and pleasant staff. There are catering facilities on board for drinks or snacks. Great routes for a leisurely trip to the O2 or down to the London Eye. Highly recommended and look forward to my next trip.

Really good option to get to Greenwich from London. Ride is a blast and some outstanding views of famous landmarks in the city. Kids have a good time and don't pay if they are 2 or under. Using your Oyster card has important discounts. Note: get Oyster card in underground and don't go for any tourist option that pays more... More

We found all the staff, on land or on the vessels, very, very friendly and helpful. This on its own would make me want to travel with them again. The boats are very fast and very comfortable. Recommended!!!

I use MBNA Thames Clippers whenever I go to the O2 - it's a really convenient way to get there and you get a fab view of London at night too!

Had to get to Greenwich and decided to go by boat (first time). Walk from Waterloo station to pier is 15 minutes. If you have an MBNA card or Oyster take them with you, will be cheaper. Took 45 minutes, about 8 stops. Very easy, bar on board. Would recommend.

Had a return from Tower Bridge to North Greenwich to go you the 02. It's relatively inexpensive and only took 30 mins. We enjoyed sitting at the back of the boat and watching the views pass by. The coffee bar is welcome but was better when it was Costa.

We were travelling from Waterloo to Greenwich. For a change we decided to go by river instead of by train. I had never travelled on the river before. We boarded the clipper at the London eye and went to Greenwich pier. It was brilliant to see the landmarks as you passed by. The price was sixteen pounds for two peopleone... More
