Cruise was great, the ability to BYOB is spot on. The driver drives and you can sit back, drink and enjoy the cruise with access to the whole boat. Probably would be nicer in the summer with more visibility of the canal and scenery etc....More

Just visited London & took a river cruise with City River Cruises. Well worth the money, great tour guide with a great sense of humour. You are able to see many attractions that you would probably not see on foot. All staff very friendly 👍🏻

Hard to believe we were in the heart of the city, at least until we got to Camden. The guide talked knowledgeably about the history of the canals and the lives of the people who live on them. A lovely way to spend a sunny...More

We arranged this for a friends birthday. We all really enjoyed our 2 hour cruise. Mike also provided a Cream Tea which was well received as we cruised down the river waving to everyone as we went. An excellent choice for any occasion... thank you..
