Good value for money. 30 min one way journey that points out all the main sights along the river. Only negatives is that the boat stops a few times to pick up people. Was a lovely day but very windy when at the top of the boat so just be prepared. But good value and a great way to travel up to tower hill

Trip from Westminister to Tower Bridge was relatively short but packed with interest. Guide gave a well-informed commentary with a light touch which came across as very friendly. Have been to London a few times, but this was our first trip on the River. Very good value and would recommend it highly.

Boat was on time. It was clean. The journey was smooth. Bit of bumping as they docked. The guide/Captain gave plenty information on what we were passing. 1 star deducted as it's a bit misleading to say the tour can be 1-2 hours when I was googling it to try get information, when in fact it was 30 minutes.
