Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Houses of Parliament, Parliament Square, London SW1A 0AA England

The Houses of Parliament are the home of British democracy. The Elizabeth Tower that houses Big Ben is one of the most
famous landmarks in London.

Pass By: London Eye, Westminster Bridge Road Riverside Building, County Hall, London SE1 7PB England

The London Eye is the world’s largest cantilevered observation wheel, offering wonderful views of London during its 30-minute rotation.

Housed in the converted Bankside power station, the Tate Modern is a ‘family-friendly’ modern art gallery, with a free permanent
collection as well as specialist exhibitions.

Pass By: St. Paul's Cathedral, St Paul's Churchyard, London EC4M 8AD England

Built by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London, St Paul’s is simply awe-inspiring. See amazing views from the dome, but be
warned, it’s 530 steps to the top!

Pass By: Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, 21 New Globe Walk, London SE1 9DT England

A replica of the original Globe Theatre with daily behind-the-scenes tours, and a summer season of Shakespeare’s plays as Elizabethan
audiences would have seen them.

After 1,000 years on the same site, Borough Market is one of the largest and oldest food markets in London. Now a hub selling high
quality produce and home-cooked street food.

Explore the nine decks of this warship to discover what life was like onboard during the Second World War.

Great outing and views from a different perspective. Very informative and lucky with the weather. I even got sunburned in January!

Lovely guide, beautiful views, easy to access-just great! We did a one-way so it was somewhat brief but it got us where we needed to go for our Borough Market and Tower of London plans.

I think we were ripped off or scammed. We followed the instructions and followed the verbal instructions by the ticket booth agent as well and no boat showed up. The only boat that did was a river commuter vessel, that was no charge or guided tour and was not a part of Viator's partner and we did not get our cruise. Felt scammed and taken advantage of.

The attendants at the area we boarded had no idea which boat we should be on, luckily no one really checked the tickets as we boarded. Staff on the boat were very good. Commentary was amusing

The most memorable part was arriving to find the place shut, with no staff present to explain why our tour, which was fully paid for, was cancelled? 3 kids in tow... all excited only to be told by a guy standing there representing another tour operator that was open, that ours was cancelled due to fog. "What fog my 11 year old asked?" To which they guy himself laughed. Perhaps his section of the river didn't have fog??! An attempt to call Viator and no answer. 2 emails sent and no reply? Just under 100euro paid for this Thames Cruise and we didn't even get to go on it ... or be contacted to tell us it was why it wascancelled? Nothing. Nowt. Nada. Zilch.

We did the short 30 min tour from Westminster to London Bridge. We made a couple of enquiries beforehand regarding taking suitcases onboard and availability of toilets on board. These were answered politely and promptly. On the tour one of the staff gave a running commentary of the sights we passed which was informative and friendly. We all enjoyed the tour.

The trip was about to last 30 minutes, was only 20 in reality, so it doesn't worth your money. Quite disappointed.
