Discover the sights and history of London from the water on this leisurely cruise down the Thames River. With your 24-hour pass, enjoy unobstructed views of the city’s main riverside attractions like the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament from within an all-weather vessel, and hop on or off at any stop along the way. Create your own London adventure.

This flexible day cruise embarks regularly from central London piers—Westminster Pier, Waterloo Pier (near the London Eye), Tower Pier, and Greenwich Pier. Board at your leisure and grab a seat in the glass-encased saloon or on the open deck. Sip on a hot or cold drink from the full-bar and enjoy panoramic views of the river as you set off. 

Drift in warmth and comfort along the banks of the historic River Thames and discover London’s history through lively onboard commentary. Relax as the boat makes the entire sightseeing loop or hop off at any stop—another boat will be along shortly to pick you up. With your flexible pass, hop on and off as many times as you’d like throughout the day to visit iconic landmarks from Westminster to Greenwich and back again!

Greenwich here we come
, Mar 2020
It's March, we're in the Corona Virus no crowds , no long line ups.... good time to visit London. The crew member who did the running commentary was fantastic. He definitely knew his stuff and was very entertaining.
Would do it again!
, Feb 2020
Such a fun experience! We stayed on board the whole time and got a great view of the city from the Thames and were able to see landmarks we otherwise wouldn't have. Highly recommend taking a day to experience London from the water!
Thames Hop-on-hop-off
, Dec 2019
The boat was very clean and comfortable. Very easy access to the pier and boarding was a breeze. Overall, a great experience. My only concern, and perhaps my misunderstanding....the last cruise from Greenwich that returns to Greenwich ends at 1530. We could only go as far as Tower Pier, had about 15-20 minutes there in order to get back to our original boarding pier. This caused us to miss some of the best sites along the river. I think the advertisement is somewhat misleading in that respect. My advice, if leaving from Greenwich, and you want the full experience, catch the earliest departure at 10:00. Otherwise you will pay for an expensive, yet limited cruise.

Great way to see London from the river. Different perspective totally and more relaxing than all the street traffic!
Misrepresented options - ripoff
, Sep 2019
I was told the only available option was hop on and hop off. However when i got to the pier i was told there were plenty of other options still available. Compete misrepresentation of the facts. Not to mention prior to paying for the ticket there wasn’t any mention of needing to print a ticket. When traveling how can anyone reasonably expect a tourist to have access to a printer, which was a must to redeem this ticket. I requested a refund refund and was told the tickets are non refundable.
Michael Caine's Grandson

Michael Caine's grandson ? 'Jordan' the on-board guide. He must deliver his information about the sights being passed, 10 times a day, yet he's fresh, funny, and all in the style of the above. Boat quality was good. Trip was Westminster to Tower Bridge, we got off there to re-join for the return later. There was an option to go on to Docklands but as we had a busy schedule on this day trip, we didn't. Singly, the only negative was we paid £63 through Viator, to find it was only £39 at the booking office.
Consider First
, Aug 2019
We enjoyed the Thames River Cruise; however, we really did not need the day pass. We spent much more time on land seeing sites. If doing again, we would purchase just a one way fare and ride the main length of the river. If you want a lazy day and to just sit, then this attraction would be for you.
Not worth it
, Jul 2019
Lines were super long and it really wasn't worth it. Crazy crowded. We got off after one stop and didn't get back on.
, Jul 2019
Great way to spend our first day. We were able to see the lay of the land and adjust to the time change.
Was Not Allowed On The Cruise
, Jun 2019
The management was extremely unhelpful and we ended up missing the cruise because we didn’t have a print-out of the ticket even if we had it in email form.
