* A traveler said: "Very informative and relaxed. I live 40 mins from London and have always wanted to do this tour! So many other cities in the world seen but not my own and I really enjoyed looking at London in a very relaxed way. My 14 and 10 yr old loved it. The cruise was entertaining and educational too. I didn’t want to do to the fish and chips and got off at cruise at Westminster as only a 10/15 minute walk to Waterloo to get train home. From Waterloo to Victoria coach station, to get on the bus tour, is a leisurely 30/40 minute walk and we ate at Bills en route which is then a 15 minute walk further to Victoria pick up point. So relaxing to see London this way with someone else driving and picking up all the history on the way. Good value for money. Thank you."
