    23 May 2018

    Perhaps a small bit expensive but very easy to book. Although I think that if the boat you booked was full you would just have to wait for the next one which would be annoying.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spend on the cruise? The hop on hop off feature worked very well and enable us to take in many difference sites. The day we went wasa drizzly cloudy cool day so we were able to enjoy the Thames River in comfort. The captain was very entertaining with his comentary of the sites along the tour route. Would recommend to anyone visiting London UK. Thanks

    Everything was well managed and the crew were friendly doing a good job. We very much enjoyed our trip


    11 May 2018

    I live in London and went in 90 before just to walk around and wait for our boarding time. Once I got there you had oversold ticket and my 13:20 departure was already full and potentially we would not even make the 14:00. As we needed to go to greenwich we ended up taking the Underground instead.


    11 May 2018

    ★★★★★

    Reliably fun and educational


  • 11 May 2018

    ★★

    11 May 2018

    ★★★★★

    Generally exclent service. Terry, a memeber of the crew, gave an excelent running commentary throughout the trip. My companion, who is not a native English speaker, was impressed by Terry's clear and very well enunciated presentation. This made a pleasant journey down the river that much more informed and amusing.


    11 May 2018

    ★★★★★

    Safe, comfortable ride.. Great commentary during the trip.. Will definitely consider City Cruises next time around..


    11 May 2018

    11 May 2018

    extremely knowledgeable, friendly, well organised.


  • 11 May 2018

    ★★★★★

    I have done the cruise from Westminster to Greenwich 3 times over the last few years and it is always a joy. The best bit? The fabulous commentary from the staff. Please, please, please never replace your London lads with people from elsewhere; their love of their locale and their wonderful humour ("we thought the gherkin was going to be the new Anne Summers headquarters") takes this cruise from good to brilliant. Absolutely recommended. Room for improvement? Frankly no. And I'm fussy.Great value for money.


    11 May 2018

    I paid for a certain trip and they let me joined another one (almost 35 minutes later).


    11 May 2018

    Trop cher pour ce que c’est


    10 May 2018

    Friendly staff, great boats (with upper and lower decks) and fantastic cruising experience on the Thames, with added entertaining commentary by on-board staff. Well worth the experience, to enjoy again and again!!.

    I bought a “rover” ticket, but was unable to use it on the return trip. The gates were closed & locked when I arrived. I must have misunderstood when the last boat returning was, but I was sure that I hadn’t!

    evevrything was fine we had a wonderful time


    05 May 2018

    ★★★

    Took a boat from Westminster to Tower and back again. Not too busy on either. Pier staff friendly. Boats clean. The commentary was better on the return, however I did not appreciate both 'asking' for tips at the end. Spent a good 2 minutes explaining that they don't get paid enough and that the commentary was off their own backs and that they don't get paid for it. Dampened the trip really. Tip - book in advance to avoid the kiosk que at the pier, it can get really long.


    05 May 2018

    Fácil, rápido y simple. Enjoy.

    Purchase was good but wasted. First time with no direction.


    04 May 2018

    ★★★

    Our first cruise from Tower Bridge was wonderful, brilliant commentary despite the poor weather. Our return from Greenwich to Tower Bridge was rubbish. No commentary, the bar wasn't open, no staff to be seen... This is the second time we have done a river cruise and we were really disappointed. We had been telling the parents how good it was and it didn't live up to expectations.

    purchase process was fine. Except that they didn't honor the purchase.


  • 23 May 2018

    ★★★★

    Perhaps a small bit expensive but very easy to book. Although I think that if the boat you booked was full you would just have to wait for the next one which would be annoying.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spend on the cruise? The hop on hop off feature worked very well and enable us to take in many difference sites. The day we went wasa drizzly cloudy cool day so we were able to enjoy the Thames River in comfort. The captain was very entertaining with his comentary of the sites along the tour route. Would recommend to anyone visiting London UK. Thanks

    Great live commentary from our guide. Very entertaining and accommodating to all visitors on board by speaking slowly for those that weren't native English speakers. Learned some very interesting facts while seeing London's river banks by boat.

    ★★★★★

    Everything was well managed and the crew were friendly doing a good job. We very much enjoyed our trip


  • 11 May 2018

    I live in London and went in 90 before just to walk around and wait for our boarding time. Once I got there you had oversold ticket and my 13:20 departure was already full and potentially we would not even make the 14:00. As we needed to go to greenwich we ended up taking the Underground instead.


  • 11 May 2018

    ★★★★★

    Reliably fun and educational


  • 11 May 2018

    ★★

    ★★★★★

    Generally exclent service. Terry, a memeber of the crew, gave an excelent running commentary throughout the trip. My companion, who is not a native English speaker, was impressed by Terry's clear and very well enunciated presentation. This made a pleasant journey down the river that much more informed and amusing.


  • 11 May 2018

    ★★★★★

    Safe, comfortable ride.. Great commentary during the trip.. Will definitely consider City Cruises next time around..


  • 11 May 2018

    See my previous comments. Was I supposed to be happy after that debacle?


  • 11 May 2018

    extremely knowledgeable, friendly, well organised.


  • 11 May 2018

    ★★★★★

    I have done the cruise from Westminster to Greenwich 3 times over the last few years and it is always a joy. The best bit? The fabulous commentary from the staff. Please, please, please never replace your London lads with people from elsewhere; their love of their locale and their wonderful humour ("we thought the gherkin was going to be the new Anne Summers headquarters") takes this cruise from good to brilliant. Absolutely recommended. Room for improvement? Frankly no. And I'm fussy.Great value for money.


  • 11 May 2018

    I paid for a certain trip and they let me joined another one (almost 35 minutes later).


  • 11 May 2018

    Trop cher pour ce que c’est


  • 10 May 2018

    Friendly staff, great boats (with upper and lower decks) and fantastic cruising experience on the Thames, with added entertaining commentary by on-board staff. Well worth the experience, to enjoy again and again!!.

    I bought a “rover” ticket, but was unable to use it on the return trip. The gates were closed & locked when I arrived. I must have misunderstood when the last boat returning was, but I was sure that I hadn’t!

    evevrything was fine we had a wonderful time


  • 05 May 2018

    ★★★

    Took a boat from Westminster to Tower and back again. Not too busy on either. Pier staff friendly. Boats clean. The commentary was better on the return, however I did not appreciate both 'asking' for tips at the end. Spent a good 2 minutes explaining that they don't get paid enough and that the commentary was off their own backs and that they don't get paid for it. Dampened the trip really. Tip - book in advance to avoid the kiosk que at the pier, it can get really long.

    Fácil, rápido y simple. Enjoy.

    Purchase was good but wasted. First time with no direction.


  • 04 May 2018

    ★★★

    Our first cruise from Tower Bridge was wonderful, brilliant commentary despite the poor weather. Our return from Greenwich to Tower Bridge was rubbish. No commentary, the bar wasn't open, no staff to be seen... This is the second time we have done a river cruise and we were really disappointed. We had been telling the parents how good it was and it didn't live up to expectations.
