We had tickets for the Thames boats, we had all day tickets and were able to go to all the stops and get on and off as we pleased, which made for a fantastic way to explore different parts of London from putney to North Greenwich, on board the boats there was toilet facilities and a bar selling alcohol or tea-coffee etc, We also had tickets for the emirates air line cable car, great views of London, our ticket was a one off ride going from one side of Thames to the other and back again, we were happy with that as when you go across the Thames you have plenty of time to try and pick out any landmarks, so we were more than happy with both choices

Great way to see London. Comfortable journey and views are second to none. However, not very joined up in its approach. Signage and directions poor. Could do with better announcements to identify tourist attractions at each stop. Too much confusion and too many ticket types. I imagine this would be a nightmare for foreign travellers trying to get around

Very enjoyable trip down the Thames, it was easy to hop off at Greenwich village and after strolling around the markets and then having lunch we waited for the next clipper and went on to North Greenwich where we rode the cable car, the views were spectacular. A lovely day out.
