very interesting commentary. not just historical facts but bits of human storie and more of the sites not included on a lot of tours. thoroughly enjoyed it, plus lots of room downstairs if weather turned bad and place to get warm drinks but bring cash

The weather helped! Chilly but a clear and sunny day. Booking easy online although helpful staff in the box offices for those paying on the day. No problems getting on and off the boat. Departure right on time and excellent (witty and informative) commentary throughout the trip. Highly recommended for someone wanting a different London experience!

We had a great day - this boat trip worked out really well for us as we wanted to experience a boat trip along the Thames but also wanted to look at some of the London attractions. This particular trip enabled us to spend a few hours in Greenwich before getting a boat back to Westminster.
