Not going to Greenwich, which was why we brought the ticket. Didn't tell you much about what was along the river and staff not that friendly. Boat needed a good clean!

The live guide was great! Thanks to Greg and Charlie, we had a great time and some good laughs. The boats look fine, everything was well-organized. Highly recommended! It would have been even better if the end station had been Greenwich, not just Tower Bridge.

It was a lovely sunny September day so we sat at the top of the boat. Beverages are available on board. Due to Covid restrictions audio was not available so the very informative guide gave an excellent commentary. Well worth taking this cruise and plenty of photo opportunities.
