  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Julie was very knowledgeable and patient with our family which includes a disabled person. Very friendly and full of backstory for the tower itself and the various museums within

    Good time, but wish we had done a cruise without the afternoon tea. The food was just okay. Tea was fine. Coffee option was very burnt. We could smell it before the waiter put it on the table.

    Pleasantly surprised by this trip. I have been on a boat tour before with Cuty Cruises but never the one with food. We had 2 courses followed by tea/coffee. The food was amazing, chicken moist, sauce tasted fab. We didn't expect such great food! The boat was clean and tidy. The toilets were big and clean.
    The staff were friendly and service was a good speed. There were 40 of us in our group ,plus others, this size of party didn't seem to affect attentiveness at all. Fabulous.
    Only thing to note is that drinks are extra.

    The river cruise was an add on to our London eye tickets and myself and the kids loved it! They never sit and listen but listened to every word Jordan had to say! Even recalling the information later on. Jordan was absolutely brilliant so funny and engaging not boring or monotone. Thankyou so much. I wasn't really too fussed on the river cruise but absolutely changed my mind. The views were amazing aswell

    I have only had 1 vintage bus tour on 13/09/23, and paid for it on 04/08/23. However I appear to have paid again on 12/09/23. Please refund the second payment.

    Our guide Anna was fantastic, very knowledgeable, funny and made sure everyone was accounted for while providing detailed instructions. The Seine River Cruise became a bit boring after the first 30 minutes. Train experience was great, thanks to Anna. Easy to find and navigate. Very comfortable trip.

    This was advertised as hop on hop off tour with 4 piers. The cruise only stopped at 2. They should give you highlights to see and eat along the way if this is truly a hop on tour. Not sure why we only stop at Westminster and Tower Bridge. The tour guides were hilarious, they made the trip memorable. For the price of 60 for a couple, I feel like it is overpriced. Just do the Uber boat for much cheaper price to see the sights. You're welcome.

    Our trip was cancelled without notice, and we had to take a later boat to a different destination. However, the boat was great with wonderful staff!!

    The London Eye is a must-see for anyone visiting London. Its modern, fast-moving observation wheel offers breathtaking views of the city's picturesque architecture and majestic landmarks. From its spacious capsules, visitors can take in the vibrant cityscape with its interactive and educational light show. Families can enjoy a thrilling and romantic ride, capturing spectacular panoramic and illuminated pictures.

    Wonderful evening. Great date night and our host was quite nice and knowledgable about Oxford and the area. A perfect way to spend some time on the river and to then enjoy a delicious dinner. Recommend.

    Nathan was so informed. How he managed to arrange for us to see Queen Camilla drive by was spectacular.

    We were staying at the Viking Venus Cruise in Greenwich and did our own tour of the Ceremony of the Keys, we took the Uber/boat cruise from Greenwich to Buckingham Palace and back on the River Thames. It was a lovely cruise and we enjoyed the sunset as well as the Moon rise that night.
