We took the ride after long walk throughout beautiful places around London eyes. It's a relaxing time while getting our foot a good rest, windy weather didn't hinder us to enjoy great historical structures along Thames river.

Definitely worth the money. The commentary on board was very interesting. The boat has a bar so you can glass of wine while sitting on the top deck enjoying the views.

Very informative tour and commentary with such wit from a local Londoner. Everyone was laughing. Comfortable enough seating and clear sound system. Newly living in London, this was a great way to see the city.
