A great way to get a unique view of the city and beyond. Well organised system and at a very fair price. And you can get to fly a plane afterwards!

What an experience...on the right day the views are stunning, you just cannot get a better overall impression of how the river and its surroundings are changing. I recommend the carnet ticket at £17 for ten crossings which is good value if you have two...More

No queues and a fine few meant that the ride across the Thames was well worth it. We took the trip just for the view and the in car commentary made this more meaningful.

We came on a bright sunny day and the whole experience is the best £3.50 you can spend in London, go South and you can get down to Borough for the market and walk down the South Bank.

I paid £3.50 one way on my Oyster Card. It was a quiet day when we went so the three of us had a car to ourselves. You could seat around 10 - 12 per car so I guess at really busy times you might have to share. However the... More
