Tour description provided by Viator

Wind up your day in the best possible way on a sunset River Thames boat cruise! Lasting two hours, this London sightseeing cruise passes all the top London attractions that frame the Thames between Westminster and Greenwich. As the sun sets on this bustling city, relax with sparkling wine and canapés, and catch must-see sights like the Shard, Big Ben and the London Eye.

Hop aboard your River Thames sightseeing boat in the early evening, and set sail from London’s Westminster Pier. Perfectly set up for a spot of evening sightseeing, your boat boasts a spacious open-air deck and window-side seats in the saloon below. Before sitting down, help yourself to the selection of colorful canapés on offer and grab a glass of sparkling wine. Then simply relax, listen to live music and watch the sun set on London.

Heading east in the direction of Greenwich, cruise down the River Thames passing all the top London attractions that frame its famous riverbanks. Pass the prestigious Houses of Parliament, where London’s politicians plan their daily dealings, and catch sight of Big Ben – the much-loved clock tower that dominates the district of Westminster.

The ever-popular London Eye sits on the south side of the river, close to Shakespeare’s Globe, the lovingly reconstructed Elizabethan playhouse. As your Sundowner boat twists its way around the bends of the Thames, watch out for a cluster of iconic sights around London Bridge. See the gravity-defying Shard building that stands at 1,016 feet (310 meters) tall, alongside sites steeped in history like the Tower of London.

Cruise past Canary Wharf, the skyscraper village where London bankers do their daily trading, before seeing the grand Naval College and Cutty Sark boat at Greenwich. Your boat will turn around at this point, and start meandering its way back to Westminster where your tour ends – perfect for you to catch any sights that you missed first time ‘round!
