    Ya he dado mi opinión anteriormente. Agregaré que el personal fue educado.



    Pero compramos los 3 tickets online el día anterior, esperando pasar directamente por la puerta del muelle y hacer la fila para montarnos en el ferry. La mujer que estaba en la puerte del muelle no estaba segura si los billetes impresos que tenía nos permitía pasar directamente, así que nos mandó hacer una fila para preguntar en la taquilla... cuando se supone que comprar los billetes por internet es para ahorrarte tiempo y filas...

    I would actually have given a 5-star experience if the lady in the pier had been friendlier. The lady who welcomed every passenger before boarding said 'hello' and 'welcome' to everyone except to us. Even she turned her eyes away from us. I hope that this is not because my wife and I are Asians and Muslims.

    We travelled from Greenwich to Tower Bridge, the commentary out was a bit behind the sights being pointed out which meant passengers who didn't know what they were looking for missed a lot.

    However the return journey was a live commentary and excellent and humerous, heart fun .

    The guy who was controlling the boat wasn't an official guide but he was brilliant at explaining the sights and very amusing at the same time.

    We travelled from Greenwich to Tower Bridge, the commentary out was a bit behind the sights being pointed out which meant passengers who didn't know what they were looking for missed a lot.

    However the return journey was a live commentary and excellent and humerous, heart fun .
