Shrek’s Adventure! Live the fairytale

Combine a river cruise with a visit to the kingdom of Far Far Away. Enjoy a madcap Shrek adventure where amazing DreamWorks animation and captivating story-telling await.

The adventure begins when you board a magical 4D ‘DreamWorks Tours’ bus. With Donkey as your mischievous tour guide, calamity, chaos and endless fun are the name of the game.
Be part of the 10 live fairy-tale themed shows where you can visit Shrek’s swamp, find your fortune in the crystal ball, get lost in the Mirror maze and reveal your inner Ogre when needed!
 
During your adventure you’ll meet many characters (princesses and donkeys included), but as in all fairy tales you may also encounter a witch or two, which some of the younger audience may find scary!

Your ticket includes:

  • Hop-on Hop-off all day sightseeing cruise ticket
  • Entrance to Shrek's Adventure! London
 

Please note: Whilst there’s no age limit, Shrek's Adventure! London is recommended for children aged 6-12 (and for those younger knights and princesses feeling especially brave).

    • 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.

  • The London Showboat

    16 Aug 2019

    ★★★

    We arrived just after 19:40hrs. We had come by Thames Clipper from Canary Wharf which unfortunately arrived 15 mins late. Everyone was already seated and I was surprised to see many guests had already finished their first course. We had not been provided with any timings and I wouldn't have expected the meal to be served before the boat departed. That aside, we were quickly attended to with drinks/bread. However we were served no food until we brought this to a waiter's attention. Then halfway through our first course we were brought our soup which sat there while we hurried down our first course. We were offered no tea/coffee or mints. The food was good but we felt rushed. It would have been good to have had a menu. I only had an idea of the food as I had happened to download a menu when I booked. Also I think many guests mistake 'casual smart' for 'casual' or 'smart'. Otherwise it was fine for a tourist attraction. I can't imagine many guests had paid the full price though.

    It did what it was supposed to. However, we were seated by the staff. After about 15 minutes and then told we were in the wrong places and made to move. The food was okay, but nothing special. The singer was much better as a DJ. Not the highlight of our holiday we expected.

    I booked 8 tickets for my very special birthday. Sadly one person was unable to come. I was informed that I will not get a refund. Instead I was promised to be served all food and drinks that belonged to the missing person. I agreed. The staff gave me only wine and asked maybe we want soup. No starter, no main, no cake. But I already paid for it. I asked staff to bring what belonged to us....they promised, but didn't bring anything. Maybe boat staff is making savings on food which belongs to guests? I am upset because of what had happened on my special day. Unfortunately I will not book City Cruises any more and warn my friends about it.

    • 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.

    ★★★

    We arrived just after 19:40hrs. We had come by Thames Clipper from Canary Wharf which unfortunately arrived 15 mins late. Everyone was already seated and I was surprised to see many guests had already finished their first course. We had not been provided with any timings and I wouldn't have expected the meal to be served before the boat departed. That aside, we were quickly attended to with drinks/bread. However we were served no food until we brought this to a waiter's attention. Then halfway through our first course we were brought our soup which sat there while we hurried down our first course. We were offered no tea/coffee or mints. The food was good but we felt rushed. It would have been good to have had a menu. I only had an idea of the food as I had happened to download a menu when I booked. Also I think many guests mistake 'casual smart' for 'casual' or 'smart'. Otherwise it was fine for a tourist attraction. I can't imagine many guests had paid the full price though.

    This was a gift, the staff on the pier not so helpful ,I was told when booking to arrive at 3 o`clock ,we did and were told to come back in 25 minutes. When I said I was told to be here then we were sent down to the pier.5 minutes later everyone else booked on started arriving and we ended up at the back of the queue ,NOT happy, everything else was good

    Didn't expect too much from this reasonably priced trip along the Thames. But what a great day we had. The two course meal was just right. Very tasty. Service was excellent and with our table for two which is a window seat. Really enjoyable. Have to say good viewing from any of the tables though.

    It did what it was supposed to. However, we were seated by the staff. After about 15 minutes and then told we were in the wrong places and made to move. The food was okay, but nothing special. The singer was much better as a DJ. Not the highlight of our holiday we expected.

    I booked 8 tickets for my very special birthday. Sadly one person was unable to come. I was informed that I will not get a refund. Instead I was promised to be served all food and drinks that belonged to the missing person. I agreed. The staff gave me only wine and asked maybe we want soup. No starter, no main, no cake. But I already paid for it. I asked staff to bring what belonged to us....they promised, but didn't bring anything. Maybe boat staff is making savings on food which belongs to guests? I am upset because of what had happened on my special day. Unfortunately I will not book City Cruises any more and warn my friends about it.
