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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

    We wanted to take our friend who was only in London for a day a trip to see the London landmarks, This was such a lovely trip it was a very hot day but so nice on the river. We saw all the sites and the commentary was really informative and very interesting also the guy doing it was brilliant so very funny, We had the best day and my friend loved it, great staff extremely welcoming and helpful, absolutely great value for money and in my humble opinion the best way to see London, and also lovely to get a chance to see Greenwich and have a nice meal before We went back to the pier to get the boat back!

    Didn’t stop smiling. Bill and Mark provided an experience our family will treasure. Full of laughter and thrills. For us, the exact measure of fun and information.
    Also, thank you for taking the time to make the trip that little bit extra special for Frankie. Certainly one she will remember zooming down the Thames listening to Happy Birthday.

    The tour itself was great. But the bus station needs to come up with a better idea. They had many different tours going from the same gate, which caused confusion and chaos.

    Very friendly crew. High speed parts are a great experience. Lots of fun. High tech seats are good for the back.

    `What a fun day` said my 10 year old grandson William
    Our daughter Lindsay, took the photos of London`s incredible landmarks, while grandad & I just held on & enjoyed the ride.
    A big thumbs up to Richard & his crew ( forgot his name , sorry ) & not forgetting the girls in the kiosk, for making this experience a day to remember.
    As said on the films : - 007 --- We will return !!

    We took the Swan Splash Tour in a group of 12 (4 adults, 3 teenagers and 5 senior citizens) as part of an 80th birthday family day out for my mum. It was absolutely brilliant - perfect for all ages. Adrian and Liz were great and we found the commentary both funny and informative. Weather was hot - a bit too hot! - but the river was definitely the best place to be and this was the perfect start to a lovely day out. Thank you! Would definitely do it again.

    Beautiful evening for a short trip down the river for our 30th Wedding Anniversary followed by a fantastic meal at the Folly. Had a little table right by the river and the three course meal was amazing. Thoroughly recommend.

    Excellent service, loved the trip. We were lucky as we had a car to ourselves, I imagine in busy times you would share.
    Nothing to do on North Bank, so just did a full circle.

    A nice day out. Had a nice traditional cream tea indoors followed by some time on the upstairs outside deck. Luckily the weather was lovely when I went. If its raining you will be stuck indoors the whole time.

    Only drawback is the cost. Its a little bit pricey for what it is, and if you want to have a guaranteed window table you have to pay extra.

    Brilliant experience, excellent crew (Barry and John), went as a family of four last Saturday. I would definitely recommend this activity, good fun commentary by Barry, and excellent piloting by John,easy to book and no hanging around with pre booking all very professional throughout. Will do it again next time we’re in London👍🏻

    My son and I went on the London Eye river cruise and Elliot was our tour guide. He was excellent - very funny and really informative. He didn’t overload us with information but clearly is very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend going and will be going again!
