Outstanding is a poor word to describe this cruise. We had booked for this cruise while still at India, and the process of getting the vouchers exchanged for tickets and boarding the boat was pretty painless. The boat itself was a spotlessly clean and well kept craft. The commentary not the recorded one, but a live commentary was sardonic, with dry and self deprecating humor, and very very enjoyable. We did not do the hop-on-hop-off portions, opting to stay with the boat through the downstream run, and for a part of the upstream run. The history of the buildings, the waterfront pubs and quays, the bridges, and the amazingly built apartment blocks were entertaining and informative to learn about. Highly recommended for anyone who wishes to see London from a different perspective
This river cruise, with the crew’s commentary, was both enjoyable and informative. It provided a good general overview of the bridges and historic sites along the river with the convenience of our scheduling we had a 24 hour pass. It was a great introduction to London, for us!!
We joined the boat at Westminster Pier and travelled to Greenwich, in glorious sunshine, and enjoyed the commentary provided by one of the crew! It was a great way to see London and to learn some interesting facts about this great city. We were very lucky and saw Tower Bridge open to allow a tall ship to pass through! Our journey back was just as much fun!
