This flexible day cruise embarks regularly from central London piers—Westminster Pier, Waterloo Pier (near the London Eye), Tower Pier, and Greenwich Pier. Board at your leisure and grab a seat in the glass-encased saloon or on the open deck. Sip on a hot or cold drink from the full-bar and enjoy panoramic views of the river as you set off. 

Drift in warmth and comfort along the banks of the historic River Thames and discover London’s history through lively onboard commentary. Relax as the boat makes the entire sightseeing loop or hop off at any stop—another boat will be along shortly to pick you up.

Great Awesome Experience
Eddie_F
, Aug 2022
It was really nice and wonderful as we got to see all the major spots with a bit of more information by cruise about the River Thames and specially the London Bridge which might surprise you too. If you are doing the tour early then suggest you go all the way to Greenwich pier and then start your way backwards by then hop off and on on the return after visiting this beautiful town.

It was a nice tour! The crew was telling the story of the buildings that could be seen from the river. When you buy this ticket you avoid doing the line. For me the info wasn't so clear, I had to do the line and lost the first boat, but there was another one 40 min later so it wasn't a problem.

Learning London through Thames

We loved the cruise in the River Thames and all we learned about the buildings and the history of each place. The person that talked about the sightseeing was great and funny. We get off in Greenwich, which was lovely, and returned in the evening. The boat is comfortable and everyone can have a good view to the surroundings.

Well worth the money the hop on hop off river Thames cruise. Plenty to see commentary by Jack was excellent and funny, we really enjoyed our trip from Tower pier to Greenwich then we went onto Westminster and back to Tower pier would definitely recommended.

Probably not the cruise you want
Colette_D
, Jul 2022
If you’re visiting London and looking for a scenic boat tour to see lots of sights from The Thames, this is probably not it. This tour only had about 3 stops total. It was not as extensive as I was hoping. Also, it was incredibly busy with too many screaming kids and I couldn’t enjoy myself. I wish there was an “adults only” cruise option.

Thames Hop on Hop off
KYMBERLY_S
, Jul 2022
I really enjoyed the crew commentary and the people running the boat were very friendly and pleasant. There are very few stops and they don't advertise what you should see at each stop. The hop on hop off boat tour in Paris does a much better job. Plus, if the crew doesn't want to do the tour, there is a recording to listen to. Not very personable.

Not worth it

Needed more stops to get on and off. Walked 30000 steps bc boat couldn't stop at places. Took us literally across the thames but when we wanted a ride back from that side it doesn't do that.

Trip to Westminster had a great crew member that gave us lots of facts and history. We got off and went to the prime meridian. Trip back had a tape playing of the details and history. Preferred the live commentary.

Nice intro to London. Very quick trip from Tower Pier to Westminster. It certainly beat waiting in traffic on a double decker bus! Narrator was informative and funny.

Recommended river trip with city cruises

We were on the first boat out from tower bridge quay on Sunday June 12th heading to Greenwich. The guy on the mic was brilliant - just the right amount of interesting info with a little bit of comedy thrown in. I wish I had asked his name to give it a mention here but hopefully your rotas will tell you. The trip back was disappointing in comparison - just a voiceover with general info and loads of adverts. It was also out of synch with the journey and rather out of date.

way out on top deck was really lovely, and commentary was great. on way back we made the mistake to sit below deck - far far too hot and the microphone was so loud it was uncomfortable- it trigger a bad migraine by the time we got off one stop later.

The commentary on our river cruise was great! HOWEVER! There is a long wait between boats. We waited 30 minutes for the boat from tower bridge to Greenwich and then had to wait another 30 minutes for it to return to tower bridge.
