Pleasant way to explore the city sights without time pressure

We opted for the river cruise rather than a bus tour because it was a nice day and the river seemed more appealing than city streets. We had long waits and unfortunately, very large rowdy groups of students who pushed and jostled us, talked loudly throughout the commentary so we could not hear the guide. It was nice to be able to get on and off as we pleased and spend as much time as we cared to at each of the stops. I would recommend this activity, but try not to get onto a boat with large groups who are more interested in selfies and socializing than in the tour. Some of the captains opted for their own narrative rather than the recording which made it much more interested when we could hear it.

We enjoyed the tour and our guide; would have like to see more sites.

We did enjoy the tour, but thought for a 3-hour tour @ $50 we could have seen more sites. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. He used a small iPad to show scenes from the films that correlated with the sites we visited, but visibility was poor and fumbling with bringing the pictures used up time. Frankly, I got as much out of the 2-hour HP tour I took last year with Free Tours on Foot, who are very well organized and use much better printed visuals.

Really enjoyed both the river trips & the Tower Bridge experience.

We loved the whole experience, staff and crews were friendly and helpful. The views on the river hops were great and the on board commentary was informative and entertaining. The weather did help, it was a lovely sunny day. The Tower Bridge history, information areas and the Engine Rooms were excellent. The walk over the top of the bridge on the glass floor with the mirrored ceiling was brilliant. Thank you, we will be recommending to our friends.

Very pleasant way to travel to Greenwich.

The boat was not as expected but fortunately there was enough room to sit outside. My rating would be different if that had happened. The photo online shows a boat with outside area on top and much bigger. This is a bit misleading. However the journey was fine and commentary entertaining.

Lovely sunny afternoon, calm river and amusing info on the sights

Rather miffed at the booking pages. I ended up paying for a trip at 10.30 and 2.00 our chosen time. As I couldn't get an answer on the phone number given I could do nothing about it. Was hoping for some compensation for the double cost as I was paying for 11 people!
