What people are saying about England

We were celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary, which had been postponed because of Covid, and had booked the boat trip for our family - 14 of us ages ranged from 5 - 78. We had beautiful weather, and could see all the sights clearly. We also had a very good guide who pointed out all the places of interest. We all thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would definitely go again.

Value for money! The Tower bridge is so close that you don't have to pay another ticket to visit it. There is a very detailed audioguide! You must get this journey!

We found the boat trip very enjoyable and the guide was very informative even though he said he was only one of the crew he was very knowledgeable

Great Fun Day, gentle relaxing ride on the Thames, Great info on the way, drinks, history, a real experience

Saw a lot of historic places. The guide was quite funny.
