Booked the night before. Easy directions to the meeting point. We got there with a good but they were happy to let 7s travel on an earlier cruise. Girl on rhe bar was really friendly and chatty. The crew member pointing out points of interest was engaging. Definitely book again.

The cruise was safely run and the skipper was uber friendly and provided an excellent running commentary of local land marks and their historical relevance. Well worth the money and the best way to see a vast array of London's historical sights whilst saving your legs for a walk around the rest. A big thank-you to the skipper for his support and recognition of the RNLI. If you ever venture North to the Mersey may I return the drink.

I booked this cruise for myself, my wife, 2 daughters (12 and 15) and their friend. The booking process and boarding process was very easy and the team on the boat were friendly and helpful. We all really enjoyed it and the commentary about the landmarks, and the humorous way this was done, made it very interesting and memorable. Next time we book we will go to Greenwich I think as well...
