Basically it is a wonderful way to get from London to Greenwich. The explanations, in English, during the crossing are extensive enough to know everything there is to see during the crossing. It is a pity that I found out at the end of the trip that you can download the audio guide in Spanish and thus avoid having to translate to my companions, who did not know English, what was being said.

Everything about booking and the actual trip was brilliant. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our guide kept us entertained with jokes about some buildings. The only downside for me was you had to buy drinks and snacks with cash which I couldn't buy a hot drink resulting in us going downstairs to keep warm. If that information was published I would have taken cash.

The crew were very welcoming and helpful, especially with a wheelchair The timings were on time and there was a lot of information on return timings There was also a lot of detail and history which was very interesting to see and hear , it was certainly easier than battling through the crowds

The weather was really nice, really sunny in London and the guide on the up deck was explaining the stories of different buildings in London really nicely and in a funny way. Definitely an unique way to see London
