Absolutely brilliant. The captain (who is not a tour guide) sounded exactly like one. Very informative and funny. The vessel was very clean and the staff were incredibly helpful. Bar prices are not bad, around £5 for a beer. I would really recommend this return tour. Thanks everyone, it was brilliant:)

We’ve enjoyed a really nice two hour cruise on River Thames, the staff was really friendly and helpful. There was a really nice person on the boat who had a lot of information about the buildings and the historical facts about the city. Would definitely recommend, they have a bar and toilets as well.

The start of this ride was surprising because we picked up people from several little ports and it took a while (implying it was just a ferry ride to get from A to B). However, my group was able to get drinks and enjoy the amusing tour guide as we went along. Overall, we enjoyed it. The Greenwich one ends by the Royal Naval Academy which is really cool, but is in a different train zone than the rest of London so be aware of that.
