As you glide eastwards down the river, admire sights from the London Eye to Tower Bridge, from Shakespeare's Globe to St. Paul's Cathedral. The audio commentary will help you spot new and exciting landmarks among the icons, among them soaring skyscrapers like the Shard and the Gherkin.

Once you've enjoyed London old and new on your hour-long cruise, make the most of Greenwich. Attractions here include the Cutty Sark sailing ship, the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory, and Greenwich Market – all within easy walking distance of the pier and available at your own expense.

Great way to see the city in a short amount of time. I liked Greenwich even more then I like London. There is an art market, antique stores, plenty of restaurants, the prime meridian line, fan museum and more.

There was one part that was disappointing. It was at Greenwich on the return boarding. They had zero idea how if our return ticket was valid. Ie I was not with a City and it took staff 10 mins to find out where we should board. Most disappointing. The test of the tour was good

The trip to Greenwich was fantastic, mainly due to the humourous and informative commentary. It was a great way to see the city and learn interesting facts about the changes the Thames has gone through. It was lovely to wander around Greenwich though was a bit disappointed in the Queen's House as it is mainly set up as a gallery. The trip back to Westminter, for those who don't realise, does not have any commentary which isn't necessary unless you have only joined the trip from Greenwich. Would recommend this trip as a way to see an interesting part of London, and a great way to travel to Greenwich.

The first half of the cruise up to Tower Bridge is interesting because of all the landmarks and it's nice to view them from a boat riding along the Thames. Once you get past that it gets less interesting due to the lack of famous sites.

Just a typical river cruise. Beautiful sights of London and good narration. Other than that, “so-so.” We would not do it again.

This is advertised as a sightseeing tour, but the first half of it was spent going to pick up other customers.

Its was good to ride along the Thames and see the views for the brief period we were on the move and not picking up other people from various points along the river but sightseeing cruise this is not. Its more a hop on, hop off ride to get from one tourist attraction to another in London.

I'd say it was worth doing as an alternative to the tube and something a bit different but alter your expectations accordingly

It was rainy out. Better to see the London area by foot or on a bus.
