Rushed and too busy experience that overpaid for. 1/2 price tickets available at the kiosk. Boat has seen better days. Beautiful day, great city but could have been done so much better

Really enjoyable trip with a knowledgeable guide. Slightly chaotic queue at the beginning but was fine. The only thing they couldn’t fix was the weather! UK Summers…..😬

Boarded at Greenwich and went to Westminster and back. It was a lovely leisurely trip on a Summer’s day. Cost was reasonable and plenty to do and see on the Southbank. Crew pointed out places of historical interest along the journey.

Average Cruise but could be better

I think the cruise was okay. If it wasn't for the live commentary, I don't think I would've really enjoyed it at all. Tip for management: the gentleman who did the live commentary asked for tips at the end of the trip. Most people don't carry cash, so if the cruise people do want to get tipped I would suggest getting a card machine whereby people can tip you.

I booked a return from Greenwich pier. But when we got to westminister … we were told that the cruise will stop at a little further down. I paid for a return for my entire family- 2 adults and 3 kids. We then had to take a taxi back to our car at Greenwich. Totally disappointed!
