Great views of riverside features. One gripe, going both ways was the cringey commentary and then a naff attempt to make you chuck money into a champagne bucket for the commentary we neither asked for or wanted. I’m a Bermondsey boy and I know a whole lot more than chummy did about the landmarks on view. Both directions use this ‘I’m just a member of the crew, I volunteer to do this blah blah blah’

A great way to visit Greenwich to see the Royal Observatory and the Cutty Sark. We purchased a return ticket and departed at 10.20 am from London Bridge. We could return from Greenwich at any time prior to the last departure at 4.50 pm (we returned on the 4.10 pm departure).

The crew member was very informative like where Gordon ramsey bought a house on the Thames how much it cost to go on the shard for panoramic views as to been free on the building across from it where Fagin from Oliver twist was filmed still the exact same as when original movie was made London s oldest pub from 15th century on the Thames where pirates were hanged and the meaning of the word wharf thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience he sounded like a real EastEnders took over 2 hrs there and back would recommend it well worth it Caroline
