Norma our tour guide was great, she was very knowledgeable and had a dry wit and good personality. The afternoon tour meant that by the time we got to the tower of London the queues to see Crown Jewels were really long, at least 2 hours long so we didn't wait as we didn't want to miss the last ferry. Ferry commentary was really funny which was surprising and pointed out lots of things on the way back. Only 30 min cruise back to London Eye. Good tour when short on time.

Very good tour and finishing with a ride on the Thames was the highlight to me. A tour like this is ideal for people with a short amount of time to spend in London.

This was a good tour to do as it covered two of the best tourist places and we were taken there and didn't have to line up for tickets! The commentary was informative also. Unfortunately the skies opened up just as the Thames river cruise started but we were entertained by the commentary which was sharp but funny. Well worth doing this half day tour.
