We have been meaning to undertake a London Thames sightseeing tour for a number of years, so on a sunny November day, took the plunge so to speak. We opted for TRS as their boat was in at Westminster Pier and the price was good,...More
We booked to go from Westminster to Greenwich and it was a very pleasant experience. Nice to see some sights from the river. There was some commentary on the way which was very informative and nicely delivered with a few jokes as well. We stayed...More

Use an Oyster card it's cheaper this is a great way to see London from the river.
Staff are polite and helpful, there is both covered outdoor seating and plenty of room inside if it's cold.

This was my best experience in London on this occasion. Simple journey up to Grenwich and the Thames Barrier but the crew member was very informative. The first part up to London Bridge was spectacular due to the buildings but he brought the past history...More
As my friend from Malaysia has not been on a river cruise to Greenwich, I decided to take him on thursday. It was a sunny day and we enjoyed the trip with a humorous commentary from the staff. Would recommend to anyone who has not...More
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
