Great way to see the sights. Very cold so make sure you wrap up warm. Good fun pointing out the sights to family. Very interesting seeing the shoreside & seeing London from a different vantage point. Recommend

The River Thames. Once a busy waterway for Barges and Ships from destinations near and afar.Now sadly under used . Fast flowing and tidal the water-level drops dramatically at low tide and fills to almost overflowing when at full ebb. A trip on this historical river is a must for the traveller with an interest in history..I would recomend boarding... More

We took a river boat from the Westminster dock to Greenwich and back. Our pilot gave us a very interesting live narration as we went up the river. He provided so much information that I spent my trip looking from one building to the next trying to keep up while capturing great photographs. If you are at all fascinated with... More

Tour guide was very informative about buildings on the riverbank. You do get a breeze so bring warm clothes, even on a warm day.

A great way to see and get around London. We got on at Westminster and got off at Tower bridge but there were parts of London we hadn't seen and it was nice to be able to get a idea of where we would like to go and where it was. You can jump on and off as much as... More

I bought 4 tickets for the trip from Greenwich to North Greenwich. My trip should take about 10 minutes. Unfortunatelly, I was waiting for the boat over 40 minutes because of delay. After 40 minutes, when the boat was still not there, I asked for return my money because I couldn't wait any more. The ticket office said that they... More

Although, we got a discount, it still cost almost $15.00 for 2 for a short ride along the river. We walked back and enjoyed it just as much. I would suggest, walk, don't ride.

On previous visits to London we have walked for miles and used the tube to visit the places we wanted to see. Whilst we still did both on this trip, we also decided to try the river boat from Westminster to Greenwich and see some of the sites close to the river on the way. The worst part of the... More
