The Christmas lights from the Thames River were awesome! It was magnificent seeing London from the river view. We really enjoyed the verbal tour on the way back, this made the trip!

Going for a boat cruise with my family at the Westminster Pier near Festival Hall where we caught the boat the man who books the tickets for some odd reason went in to an immediate rant about how he hates White Christian Americans and further telling us while he's laughing about how he ruined the Thames Clipper prior business owner (an American) for dumping some fuel in the river and mentioned that it was him who reported him. As an Englishman and having a son that is half American I couldn't belive what utter lefty trash was coming out of his mouth for just booking a cruise ticket. He's some Australian sounding guy with glasses and a beard and like laughing at his own jokes. I'd strongly advise not giving him your custom as he seems very anti west and made a point of hating white American people.

Hello It seems to me that it was a lack of information when I arrived at the Wesmister Pier boat When I arrived with my family 30 mins before of the time. we showed the tickets to some of the workers of sightseeing cruise, They told us to wait on the platform B We waited to board but it was not the place they had informed us correct. We lost our experience, the money, the time, we were with a 3years kid so much frustration. I hope you give me some solution. Kind regards

Was a good experience, was able to get great views of the city from the water as the temperature was not bad on the second story open deck. They had the option between coffee and many options of tea. Everyone receives the same tea snacks of sandwiches and mini deserts all of which were okay nothing special. Overall this was our second time doing the tour as we enjoyed it the first time we did it 3 years ago. The biggest difference between the last time we did it was they had a person telling us about some of the areas we passed and he was hilarious.

Dylan was great with his tour commentary. He gave us interesting facts also with comedy comments. Great Unfortunately the pots of tea and coffee were not hot enough.
