Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your cruise departs throughout the day from the London Eye. Make your way to the London Eye Pier and board the all-weather boat for a covered ride in winter, or a breezy ride on the open-air sundeck during the warmer months.

The virtual maps and onboard commentary point out well-known London attractions as you pass Westminster’s Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, followed by St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, and the formidable Tower of London. Also pass by the HMS Belfast, Shakespeare's Globe, Tate Modern, and the Millennium Bridge.

Your cruise returns to the departure point at the London Eye Pier. From there, head to the boarding deck and enjoy a ride in a large observation capsule. Marvel at panoramic views of London as the Ferris wheel hits its 135-meter (443-foot) peak.

    Good value and lovely London experience on the London Eye and river cruise
    , Oct 2021
    We booked the river cruise and London eye experience. We booked it on line and the cruise part is simple to get the tickets downloaded or printed off. However we did experience difficulties booking our London eye time as we originally thought that it would automatically carry on. Don’t follow the viator instructions because even there help line could not book our time on London eye go straight to London eye and follow instruction to book your time your booking no automatically comes up just put your name and details in and pick your time download or print tickets off. It’s good value for money through viator. We went on cruise first and the lady was excellent full of information and very friendly and entertaining. You get to see a lot of Londons historical attractions and not just the obvious ones. We thought it was excellent. Although we initially thought that the queue was long for the London eye it really moves quickly and is well organised so don’t be put off. It gives an amazing view across London even on the day we went which was rainy and cloudy. Once again as part of the same trip. We thought it was very good value and enjoyed the whole experience. Just took us a while to fathom out how to get booked on the eye which you must do don’t just turn up. Thanks again viator for a lovely experience.
    Amazing views

    Me and my daughter are not the best with heights but we decided to give it a go, and we were very surprised it was a very smooth ride and the view of London was absolutely amazing, on the other hand my son loved it!
    Loving the View!

    Easy access to pier for cruise along the river with humorous guide. Pleasant and informative. London Eye experience recommended for an all around surroundings view.
    Highly recommended
    , Sep 2021
    I have been to London before, but my daughter hadn't, so we were looking for some "full tourist experience" things to do, and this was one of her choices. The Eye was interesting and gave some great views over London, but, quite unexpectedly, it was the Thames cruise that was the highlight. Liam, the guide, was fantastic, the weather was gorgeous, and the views from the river were great. Very excellent experience overall, and very cost-effective!
    Lovely Short Cruize

    AJ was amazing. He gave a very entertaining and informative talk. The boat was clean and the staff friendly. We wouldn’t do the eye again but would do the boat.
