Lovely river trip, the running commentary very informative & amusing!

Great day out on the river trip from Westminster to Greenwich & back. The on board commentary was very informative & made the trip all the more enjoyable. Unfortunately had to queue for nearly an hour to board the boat for the return journey, not sure if this is usual as we weren't anticipating a delay & there was no explanation given. Just to mention as well that there are no loos at the dock so be prepared! Overall a great day out regardless & excellent value for money, would recommend.

Enjoyed this trip and it was very informative

We enjoyed this cruise down the Thames very much. The boat was comfortable and clean with toilet facilities and also refreshments if required. The crew were courteous and friendly and helpful on boarding and disembarking to those who were not so agile. The commentary was funny and engaging and was also very informative, which made the trip very interesting. We loved it and next time we visit London, plan to do another cruise, just for the fun of it.

This was a well planned and guided tour.

Our guide, Morton, was very informative and also very attentive and clear in his instructions. I enjoyed all the sights, especially Leeds Castle, which was a surprise. My main purpose was to see Canterbury. I would have liked a bit more time in Greenwich.

A very enjoyable cruise, efficiently run and well worth the money

I took my 85 year-old-father on this cruise as a birthday outing and he thought the whole thing was wonderful. The boat was comfortable and the commentary both informative and entertaining. Organisation was first-rate. Highly recommended.

Excellent live guide commentary to explain buildings, history, and pub

See the Clipper ship in Greenwich. Learn the history of the wharfs, housing, facts, and Gordon Ramsey’s Pub! Fantastic verbal and visual trip that allows great photos and humorous statements from the guide.
