A: Not on Fridays. 

Actual times may vary depending upon the state of the tide and other river traffic. Always check with City Cruises staff for any changes to advertised services. 

 

ONBOARD FACILITIES

On all boats you’ll find bars serving a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks. You’ll also find that all boats offer full toilet facilities.

Free onboard commentary in eight languages. A live commentary in English or a recorded audio guide in eight languages is usually available.

Most boats are wheelchair accessible and have disabled toilet facilities. Please check with a member of the City Cruises team at the pier or call +44 (0)20 77 400 400 to learn departure times of the type of boat that will best suit your needs.

Meal Deal

Ask on board for meal deals, and save money on popular snack combinations.

 

For a great day out with family or friends, blow away the cobwebs on a Thamesjet and get ready for summer. Enjoy a fun filled, adrenaline fuelled experience on a speedboat - the most extreme ride on the river. You'll enjoy sightseeing, speed and awesome aquabatics. 
 

 

If you’re a family looking for a great day out we think nothing beats the River Thames. Fresh air, great sights and café-bars on all boats will help you keep the kids well-fed, entertained and even, dare we say it, even, a little bit educated. Added to that we offer suitable tickets so you can pick out just what  you want.
 

 

As the largest cruise operator on the River Thames, we offer a range of services dedicated to group organisers and school trips.
 
Group bookings are available for sightseeing cruises, dining cruises and private hire. As well as the usual high-quality service, groups benefit from discounts. These are normally set at 10% for groups of 20+ . Instead of this discount, school groups receive free adult tickets in proportion to the number of child tickets purchased.

School groups free places
1 Adult free for every 8 children (5-11 years) 
1 Adult free for every 12 children (12-16 years)

If you book frequently, perhaps for other groups as well as your own, it may be worth setting up an account with us.

    Not excellent because the commentary on the return journey , Greenwich to Westminster 4.30 Sunday 28th June, was extremely annoying. I know the guy was trying to be funny but he needs to be a little bit more positive.

    I am disabled and found the help and courtesy of the crews of the vessels I have been was really friendly and useful. The journeys I have taken between Westminster and Greenwich comfy and so entertaining with the added info from the 'guided tour talks'. Thanks to your staff

    ★★★★★

    Enjoyable


    30-Jun-2014

    ★★

    We were a well-behaved school group booking. Despite being the first to board, we were herded to the back of the boat under the canopy on a hot day with restricted views. I would have liked to have been trusted to control my group who would have behaved quietly and unobtrusively in front seats.


  • 30-Jun-2014

    ★★★★★

    The guide/crew member giving the commentary was informative and amusing on our return trip and the crew on both the journeys we took were very friendly.


    30-Jun-2014

    ★★★★

    Good trip, nicely interconnected between boats, good price and helpful operating staff. The only observation is one of safety, at several disembarkation points during the trip, tips were collected in a bucket from those leaving the boat. The safety of some passengers were called into question as they tried to deposit coins into the bucket at the same time as stepping across the gap between the boat and the shore causing some to trip as they were not concentrating on their footing. I have no problem with giving tips, but they should be collected either on the boat or on the shore, not whilst trying to negotiate a shore landing


    30-Jun-2014

    ★★★★★

    The cruise proved to be one of the best ways to discover London and we learned so much about past, present and future London.

    Lovely cruise but we were disappointed that we didn't get to see the Millennium dome. Think if we were to book again, we would just book to the Tower bridge as our children got board after that. Also, we had not been made aware that there would be a 20 minute break at Greenwich.

    the personal touch has mostly gone, the recorded voice over is too loud and to be honest-rubbish.you used to have a guy on board who gave an interesting and humorous commentary

    The girl in the kiosk on Saturday told us to wait in Queue B for the cruiseship, which meant we missed one ship before someone moved us over to Queue A. Otherwise everything was good. Very professional.

    It was a lovely afternoon and the commentary was helpful. My complaint is that you advertise a translation on headphones into Russian. However the headphones, which my overseas friend needed, were provided but the Russian commentary didnt work. This was disappointing for her, and hard work for me as I had to do the translation!

    Not excellent because the commentary on the return journey , Greenwich to Westminster 4.30 Sunday 28th June, was extremely annoying. I know the guy was trying to be funny but he needs to be a little bit more positive.


  • 03-Jul-2014

    I am disabled and found the help and courtesy of the crews of the vessels I have been was really friendly and useful. The journeys I have taken between Westminster and Greenwich comfy and so entertaining with the added info from the 'guided tour talks'. Thanks to your staff

  • 30-Jun-2014

    ★★

    We were a well-behaved school group booking. Despite being the first to board, we were herded to the back of the boat under the canopy on a hot day with restricted views. I would have liked to have been trusted to control my group who would have behaved quietly and unobtrusively in front seats.


  • 30-Jun-2014

    ★★★★★

    The guide/crew member giving the commentary was informative and amusing on our return trip and the crew on both the journeys we took were very friendly.


  • 30-Jun-2014

    ★★★★

    Good trip, nicely interconnected between boats, good price and helpful operating staff. The only observation is one of safety, at several disembarkation points during the trip, tips were collected in a bucket from those leaving the boat. The safety of some passengers were called into question as they tried to deposit coins into the bucket at the same time as stepping across the gap between the boat and the shore causing some to trip as they were not concentrating on their footing. I have no problem with giving tips, but they should be collected either on the boat or on the shore, not whilst trying to negotiate a shore landing

    Lovely cruise but we were disappointed that we didn't get to see the Millennium dome. Think if we were to book again, we would just book to the Tower bridge as our children got board after that. Also, we had not been made aware that there would be a 20 minute break at Greenwich.
