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.

We did the 1 hour cruise and it was brilliant. Our boat had a really great, funny, interesting and informative commentary. And we don't usally love commentary but we learnt so much especially being people that live close to London and vist often ! Comfortable seats and nice boarding waiting room. Staff were great and for anyone who hasn't been to Greenwich its amazing. So full of activities and things to do / see. Lots of street food stalls and a lovely market. We spent about three days walking around and staying in this area and we felt like we did everything we wanted to.

All the seats did not face the same direction, as in forwards, same direction as the boat was traveling. So I had to look backwards to see and relate to what the guide was talking about. From this perspective, it was uncomfortable and I did not get to see all of what the guide pointed out.
