Very satisfied with Thames river cruise

Reviewed by: Kaorin, 2015/08/05

I used this during my first trip to London. I was thinking about what to do on my first day and I decided to book this cruise, as there is a lot of important landmarks along the river and I wanted to got to Greenwich Observatory as well. Boarding point is at Westminster Pier from where you can see Big Ben - I got excited right away.
I decided to sit in the open deck, it was a bit cold, but it was perfect seat to see all London landmarks along the way - unforgettable view. There was a coffee and snack corner on board and as we travelled along the river we could hear live commentary pointing out the most important sights. On the way to Greenwich we passed under the famous Tower Bridge and next to the impressive warship.
Going by tube or bus if fun as well, but river cruise is a completely different experience! I would surely recommend it and I will use it again if I'm back in London.

Great for London sightseein

Reviewed by: Monika, 2015/04/14

Hop On Hop Off river cruise is a great alternative for those who want to see London from a different perspective. We decided that we don't want to stay locked up on the tube underground, but rather stay overground and see as much as we can.
From the boat we were able to see all of London's most important landmarks. The commentary on the boat was very helpful. Our first stop was the Tower of London - before we got off we managed to take some great pictures of Tower Bridge. Then we got on the boat and got off again at Greenwich. Departures were regular and well coordinated, so we never had to wait very long for the next boat.
I would definitely recommend it to everybody who wants to do London sightseeing in a bit different way.
