    It's been years since I did a Thames cruise and it didn't disappoint, we went from Greenwich up to Westminster and saw all the sites on the way, it's a fun way for the kids to see the sights from TV in a relaxing and stress free environment.

    City cruises accepted scans of our the tickets from our phones even though the site said we need to print them. This is both great (yay! we did not need to print them) and at the same time leaves room for improvement (why not tell people they don't need to bother printing the tickets and save them the headache - you are accepting PDFs anyway so let people know).

    Fantastic views and really fun live commentary from the crew member, just bursting with sarcasm) always on the edge, but never beyond. We had a really good time. Greenwich is also a fantastic place. Absolutely worth spending at least a day there. Definitely buy a Rover ticket to go there in the morning and come back at night time to enjoy these marvelous views both in daylight and with all that night illumination on!

    We opted to do a river cruise on our first afternoon in London with our children (aged 8 and 5). It was fairly late in the day so we only had time to travel from Westminster to Tower Bridge and it was a great way to see the sights and wow them with some of London’s iconic landmarks. There was plenty of space on the top deck so we wrapped up and took it all in on with uninterrupted views. The onboard commentary was hilarious. Extremely entertaining as well as informative and was pitched perfectly for us to get the facts we wanted without boring the children. The chap who did the commentary really helped to make the trip memorable - very funny!

    Booked for New Years Eve, all roads leading to the departing pier were closed and they didn't bother to alert me beforehand and no other map software pointed this out to me when planning my journey.

    I had purchased a ticket online for a 12:40pm leave time. When I arrived at 12:00pm I was directed to Queue for a cruise that left at 1:20pm since the 12:40pm cruise was already full...That 1:20pm time did not work for our schedule so we ended up leaving the queue and wasted our 20 GBP. If you buy a ticket for a specific time, they should ensure they don't oversell that time.

  • 28 Dec 2018

    ★★

    I’ve done this cruise many times before with friends and family but this is the first time that there was no commentary. What’s the point of a sightseeing cruise if there’s no one to tell you about what you’re seeing? I had to fill in as best I could for my party and others around us who listened in.

    ★★★★

    The cruise was very pleasant but the quality of the recorded commentary was poor. It explained the history of London and interesting facts but crucial information was lost . It became an irritant and it would have been better not to have had it running. Or better still, a real person commentating.


    18 Dec 2018

    ★★★★

    Very nice and organised trip. Amazing service. However, it stopped for too long at Westminster got a little bit bored. On the way back the announcement or history telling was wayy toooo loud. Other than that was an amazing trip and would definetly go again

    I’ve chosen this cruise provider for the second tone as I love the security guy’s touring: rich historical info proved, in a clear, easy to follow and digest way, with fantastic sense of humor! Simply killing two birds with one stone: you see the beauties of London accompanied by awesome commenting!


    14 Dec 2018

    ★★★★

    The outward cruise from Westminster pier was in a very basic boat that was draughty and had very uncomfortable old wooden seats; we noticed that there was no safety talk and the commentary was also almost inaudible (we pointed this out to the staff when we disembarked and they were unaware of this problem). The return from Greenwich pier was in a totally different boat & quite luxurious - comfortable seats, tables, warm and with an audible commentary including the safety talk..

    My two sisters in their 60s, my niece 38 and myself had a great time on the cruise, a very well spent £12.75, we had great weather for November so we were able to sit on the upper deck. The member of staff who did the tour was very funny, kept us interested, I've done this cruise twice and both times learned something new, I love being a tourist in my own city, and I will be booking again to go with other family members. We did the single journey.

    29 Nov 2018

    ★★

    Beautiful views of the river but we were stuck at Tower mooring for over half an hour with no information at all. People who stood up were simply told to sit down. Only when we were all told to get off were we told that the electrics had failed and so there was no P.A. system. That does not excuse the lack of information - they could have just shouted an explanation for the delays. I understand that things can go wrong, but the lack of information was appalling. Rather than wait for another boat we got the tube home!


  • 28 Nov 2018

    ★★

    Despite there being audio sets advertised throughout the boat they were 'unavailable'. The pa system wasn't the best and we didn't get a live (and informative) commentary until less than halfway through the return journey.

    Long story but I purchased tickets at 4:00pm on the afternoon of Saturday October 6th for a cruise of the Thames for a 10:00 trip (no specification whether it was am or pm). I assumed the ticket must be for the evening as it would not make sense to sell me a ticket for a trip that had already happed 8 hours earlier that day, We arrived at the pier at 9:45pm to find it completely desolate which means their website sold me a ticket for a cruise that had already taken place 8 hours before!!! When I messaged them to complain they refused to refund me

    This is the best part of our trip to London. We tried it last year and loved it and this year was even better topped off as always by a visit to Greenwich which we love. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to sight see and is very reasonably priced too. See you next year City Cruises.

When I arrived at 12:00pm I was directed to Queue for a cruise that left at 1:20pm since the 12:40pm cruise was already full...That 1:20pm time did not work for our schedule so we ended up leaving the queue and wasted our 20 GBP. If you buy a ticket for a specific time, they should ensure they don't oversell that time.

    I had to cancel my trip at the last minute for a reason beyond my control. It is a shame I am not able to either get a refund or use my ticket towards a future journey.

    We highly recommend to take the whole boat tour from Westminster Pier to Greenwich as worth to see London atractions from different perspective.

    Simple and clear booking process. Really friendly staff at boarding. Pity Brexit will be stopping us getting such wonderful staff. Captain was a great entertainer too.

    I’ve done this cruise many times before with friends and family but this is the first time that there was no commentary. What’s the point of a sightseeing cruise if there’s no one to tell you about what you’re seeing? I had to fill in as best I could for my party and others around us who listened in.

    The cruise was very pleasant but the quality of the recorded commentary was poor. It explained the history of London and interesting facts but crucial information was lost . It became an irritant and it would have been better not to have had it running. Or better still, a real person commentating.

    Very nice and organised trip. Amazing service. However, it stopped for too long at Westminster got a little bit bored. On the way back the announcement or history telling was wayy toooo loud. Other than that was an amazing trip and would definetly go again

    I’ve chosen this cruise provider for the second tone as I love the security guy’s touring: rich historical info proved, in a clear, easy to follow and digest way, with fantastic sense of humor! Simply killing two birds with one stone: you see the beauties of London accompanied by awesome commenting!

    The outward cruise from Westminster pier was in a very basic boat that was draughty and had very uncomfortable old wooden seats; we noticed that there was no safety talk and the commentary was also almost inaudible (we pointed this out to the staff when we disembarked and they were unaware of this problem). The return from Greenwich pier was in a totally different boat & quite luxurious - comfortable seats, tables, warm and with an audible commentary including the safety talk..

    My two sisters in their 60s, my niece 38 and myself had a great time on the cruise, a very well spent £12.75, we had great weather for November so we were able to sit on the upper deck. The member of staff who did the tour was very funny, kept us interested, I've done this cruise twice and both times learned something new, I love being a tourist in my own city, and I will be booking again to go with other family members. We did the single journey.

  • 29 Nov 2018

    ★★

    Beautiful views of the river but we were stuck at Tower mooring for over half an hour with no information at all. People who stood up were simply told to sit down. Only when we were all told to get off were we told that the electrics had failed and so there was no P.A. system. That does not excuse the lack of information - they could have just shouted an explanation for the delays. I understand that things can go wrong, but the lack of information was appalling. Rather than wait for another boat we got the tube home!


  • 28 Nov 2018

    ★★

    Despite there being audio sets advertised throughout the boat they were 'unavailable'. The pa system wasn't the best and we didn't get a live (and informative) commentary until less than halfway through the return journey.

    I booked the ‘rover’ ticket that allows you 24 hours of travel and stops at four piers along the river that are great for exploring London. Onboard commentary informs you what landmarks you are passing. I thought it was great value and a nice way to see the city.

    Long story but I purchased tickets at 4:00pm on the afternoon of Saturday October 6th for a cruise of the Thames for a 10:00 trip (no specification whether it was am or pm). I assumed the ticket must be for the evening as it would not make sense to sell me a ticket for a trip that had already happed 8 hours earlier that day, We arrived at the pier at 9:45pm to find it completely desolate which means their website sold me a ticket for a cruise that had already taken place 8 hours before!!! When I messaged them to complain they refused to refund me

    The cruise seemed very short as we only went from Westminster to the Eiffle tower for what amounted to $18 CDN each. Otherwise, it was very nice and informative.

    This is the best part of our trip to London. We tried it last year and loved it and this year was even better topped off as always by a visit to Greenwich which we love. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to sight see and is very reasonably priced too. See you next year City Cruises.
