Really enjoyed our trip to London and our package we purchased. We wanted to do the London Eye and hop on hop off bus - the river cruise was an additional extra thrown in and ended up being the highlight. We ended up walking most of the way around the city, only using the bus twice - both times to go just one stop. Magnificent views from the London Eye - but the cruise was just wonderful. We went from Tower Bridge to Westminster. The guy speaking was really funny and the facts super interesting. The baileys hot chocolate on board also delicious. Would absolutely recommend.

We had a really lovely day , we learnt lots , things we didn’t know , the staff were exceptional , really helpful , polite and knowledgeable .

Funny, at times a little risqué and dare I say it but maybe even scary...informative! Well worth every penny! Our 7 and 8 year old loved it.

It was truly magical, interesting and exciting! Lots of interesting information and wonderful stories.

It was really good fun. Not really scary but enough anticipation of scary to keep me interested.
