Really enjoyed our trip to London and our package we purchased. We wanted to do the London Eye and hop on hop off bus - the river cruise was an additional extra thrown in and ended up being the highlight. We ended up walking most of the way around the city, only using the bus twice - both times to go just one stop. Magnificent views from the London Eye - but the cruise was just wonderful. We went from Tower Bridge to Westminster. The guy speaking was really funny and the facts super interesting. The baileys hot chocolate on board also delicious. Would absolutely recommend.

It was the perfect variant for us. In retrospect, we wouldn't have needed the bus tour because we had such great weather and everything went well, but the boat tour was just fantastic. The tour guides were all very friendly and we would always choose it again ...
