Michael was an amazing tour guide (although he did say he wasn’t official and just a member of the boat crew). He made everyone feel safe and added some great commentary along the ride. Would definitely book again as we go a great view of either side of the Thames!

We enjoyed our little tour, really nice experience. I can recommend to all people visiting for the first time but even Londoners

Nice boat ride to Greenwich, knowledgeable staff and at a good price.
