Learned a lot from the cruise. There were a lot of interesting trivia I didn’t know about the landmarks along the River Thames. And our host was hilarious too. Throw in the perfect weather, it made the cruise excellent.

Very enriching discovery. Affordable price and payment by internet which avoids topping up. To recommend.

Super nice driver and good narrations during the tour. The technology worked perfectly.

Such a great way to enjoy Edinburgh. The drivers were very accommodating. Great time!

Very good saw sights normally would not see on foot
