River Cruise-Boat Trip: Be a part of London History, enjoy the River Cruises and see the beauty of London City..
River Cruise or Boat Trip is a thrilling fascinating way to see the great city London. Thames river is a central focus to the evolution of London City. The Thames comes from Celtic word ‘Teme’, meaning river. It plays an important role on Londoner’s life. It was a main artery for Britain’s Trade & commerce in the past.
