    The cruise was very enjoyable as the crew were reassuring in terms of safety, and very entertaining too. Knowledgeable about the course so gave a bit of history lesson on the landmarks and the area along the bank. Loved it! Lol, the crew also seem to concern themselves after work with groundbreaking 'intoxicating research' at a 'laboratory' along the river bank. Brilliant! :)

    The description of the various sights of London was 'live' and given by a guy with a strong cockney accent who was pleasantly humorous. He gave life to what is otherwise a rather ordinary trip.

    A very pleasant ride on the Thames from Westminster to Tower Bridge. The captain was very knowledgeable about the various sights along the way and very entertaining. Great value.


  • 20 Sep 2019

    This tour was utterly disappointing. Poor levels of customer service and general lack of interest from onboard staff. Considering this was a large group of over 100 participants we were shocked at the treatment.


    20 Sep 2019

    ★★★★★

    Loved the live commentary.


    20 Sep 2019

    This was an awful and disappointing experience. Having saved for a day out with my family, the cruise almost ruined it. Despite booking for an allotted time, there was a huge queue and the boat was late. So we didn’t get on until much later than expected. The boat that arrived was dirty, smelly and had no open top seating as advertised. This hampered the view considerably. Once we finally set off, the boat terminated at Tower Bridge and told us we all had to get off and queue and wait for yet another boat to finish the tour. We finally arrived at Greenwich over two hours later, in the rain with much time wasted and taken away from the rest of our precious sightseeing day. After letting the company know my feelings before I left a negative review, they acknowledged my concerns but followed up their poor service with even worse customer service and accused me of threatening them with blackmail and therefore would offer me no compensation. Lovely people. They must be so proud

    The cruise was amazing, went for a day out in the holiday with my kids. The member of staff that was doing the commentary explained how the journey would be and what to expect. He was very informative when identify landmark buildings and talking about the history. He had a bit of banter which made listening to him easier. I learnt a lot about true history of the thanes and the kids LOVED it defo doing it again next year. plus he weather was perfect made it an even better experience.

    The cruise was very enjoyable as the crew were reassuring in terms of safety, and very entertaining too. Knowledgeable about the course so gave a bit of history lesson on the landmarks and the area along the bank. Loved it! Lol, the crew also seem to concern themselves after work with groundbreaking 'intoxicating research' at a 'laboratory' along the river bank. Brilliant! :)

    Always love going on a boat trip with City Cruises in the Summer holidays. Unfortunately the day we picked was wet and windy, which led to one of the boats being cancelled. Still enjoyed the journey though.

    The description of the various sights of London was 'live' and given by a guy with a strong cockney accent who was pleasantly humorous. He gave life to what is otherwise a rather ordinary trip.

    City Cruises provide the perfect way to travel along the river Thames. It was a very informative 45mins pointing out various landmarks. The staff were very caring and friendly. I would highly recommend City Cruises and would definitely use them again.

    A very pleasant ride on the Thames from Westminster to Tower Bridge. The captain was very knowledgeable about the various sights along the way and very entertaining. Great value.


  • 20 Sep 2019

    This tour was utterly disappointing. Poor levels of customer service and general lack of interest from onboard staff. Considering this was a large group of over 100 participants we were shocked at the treatment.

    ★★★★★

    Loved the live commentary.


  • 20 Sep 2019

    This was an awful and disappointing experience. Having saved for a day out with my family, the cruise almost ruined it. Despite booking for an allotted time, there was a huge queue and the boat was late. So we didn’t get on until much later than expected. The boat that arrived was dirty, smelly and had no open top seating as advertised. This hampered the view considerably. Once we finally set off, the boat terminated at Tower Bridge and told us we all had to get off and queue and wait for yet another boat to finish the tour. We finally arrived at Greenwich over two hours later, in the rain with much time wasted and taken away from the rest of our precious sightseeing day. After letting the company know my feelings before I left a negative review, they acknowledged my concerns but followed up their poor service with even worse customer service and accused me of threatening them with blackmail and therefore would offer me no compensation. Lovely people. They must be so proud

    The cruise was amazing, went for a day out in the holiday with my kids. The member of staff that was doing the commentary explained how the journey would be and what to expect. He was very informative when identify landmark buildings and talking about the history. He had a bit of banter which made listening to him easier. I learnt a lot about true history of the thanes and the kids LOVED it defo doing it again next year. plus he weather was perfect made it an even better experience.

    • It was a lovely experience. • Very relaxed and fun atmosphere. • Even the kids loved the cruise. • Artem, the cruise guide was so witty and eloquent with the information on cultural, historical and contemporary sites we cruised by. • The cruise captain was brilliant too and the other staff on and off board. • The roller family ticket was a brilliant way to hop off and hop on as many times within the whole day. Refreshments on the cruise were refreshing! • Looking forward to booking more cruises in the future.

    An amazing experience. It was fun and educative. Will definitely recommend.

 

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. 
 

 

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. 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)

Free teachers and discounts are based on retail prices and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. The discount is not available online or at the pier. 

 

If you’re a family looking for a great day out in London ​hopefully our list of things to do in London with kids will help fill your mind with ideas and suggestions. But 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 and entertained.
