This was a great thing to do as the underground is our normal way to travel we chose to do this and walking instead . Worth the money as you see a different point of view and the commentary was great also . Loved the way the guy said Harry Potter . Worth doing and a great family thing to... More

This is the best way to travel to the 02 and North Greenwich with plenty of stops on the way. I used my Oyster Card and it only cost around £6 one way. Really comfy seating and a proper barista coffee shop on board. Amazing views all the way and a thoroughly relaxing wish yo travel - I even had... More

To see the full splendour of the great and historic City of London in comfort you MUST take the river bus down the Thames from Westminster Pier to the O2 Centre at Greenwich, past the embankment, London Eye, South Bank, St.Pauls, Thames Modern, warehouse of the Port of London, Greenwich palace and the docklands. A brilliant, speedy and inexpensive trip... More

I’m not sure we gave the Thames River Boat Cruise a fair shot, but here’s what I learned. The real benefit isn’t actually the boat ride itself, but the sites where the boat stops. If I ever get a do-over, here’s what I’ll do. Since the ticket is for one 24-hour period, I’ll get myself to one of their advertised... More

Looking for a way back home after visiting the O2, decided to try the river boat instead of the tube. Took the boat from North Greenwich Pier to Westminster - and is was brilliant. Lots to see on both sides of the river, easy to jump on using Oyster card and much nicer than the tube, especially on a sunny... More

To me it is worth it's money only if you travel at least to Greenvich. The cruise from London Eye to Tower will take only 10-15 minuites and you do not have time to enjoy the journey.

Started our trip at Greenwich where we saw the Cutty Sark. Had time to visit the naval museum there. The buildings looked wonderful from the river, probably the best view of them. We made our way to just pass Tower Bridge and docked by the Tower of London. Lots to see on the way there. Got off and visited the... More

Got tickets at half price as we had London eye tickets. Good value at half price but could be pricey for average family of 4 at full price. Houses of Parliament, Tower of London, Tower bridge, HMS Belfast, itv studio etc Toilet and refreshments
