This was a great day out. Great sights on the river and very interesting commentary on the river. Greenwich is an interesting town and the Cutty Sark was fascinating. The Maritime Museum less so, especially the section on The Artic/Antatica. Having been to other museums with was disappointing. Very flat and lacking in detail and information.

Lovely boat and really entertaining information about landmarks on the trip. We sat upstairs for the trip to Greenwich and enjoyed the sights and commentary. Really handy to be able to hop off, visit Greenwich and hop back on to return to Westminster. On the return we sat indoors which was lovely and warm and the cafe was handy. All the staff we friendly and helpful and a great laugh. Would highly recommend for a chance to see London landmarks from a different perspective.

It was great. Being able to get on and off at different places when I wanted for an entire 24hr period, well you can't beat that for £7.50. Another group only booked a one way to Greenwich, thru who I don't know but I know they paid more than I did for their short trip as they had to get off at Tower Bridge because there was no way for them to get back from Greenwich. What a Maroon. Pays to shop the internet I guess.
