    Wonderful trip. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny with it. Access to location was easy and staff helping was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed learning more about London and the Thames was busy, great to see our waterways are being use positively. I would definitely do this again.

    A lovely way to see bits of London that you can only see from the river. The guy who did the commentary was funny, informative and provided just enough info to be interesting without being intrusive. And he said that he was a crew member, who volunteered to do that, so that's even more commendable!
