  • River Thames is without a doubt the most famous river of UK. London is so rich in history and River Thames is the prime location to experience it. Big Ben, London Eye, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Millennium Bridge and many more are among those famous landmarks that one can see along Thames.
  • This is a nature that makes London even more beautiful and spectacular. Take a tour on it via the cruise, tickets can be gotten at the front of the river. Most of the tours are delivered in English and dutch, and most definitely interesting.
