Absolutely loved this cruise. We took it from Tower Bridge to Greenwich and then all the way back to Westminster bridge with a quick stop again at Tower Bridge.
Its a bit expensive as a mode of transport to Greenwich vs the tube,
but its an amazing experience and definitely worth trying out at least
There is a bit of recorded commentary and sometimes the crew
themselves take a hold of the microphone and reveal interesting details
about the buildings you are passing (remember they are not tour guides

I've done a couple of boat rides across
the globe that are just modes of transport, not sold as a cruise, and
this one is right at the top of the list. Try and wait for a boat that
has a top deck if you can, the views and pictures are so much better
from here on a good day.
The lower section was also amazingly comfortable. I have never seen such comfortable table seating on a transport boat.
There's a tiny cafe counter which sells pre-packaged food and some hot drinks.
Clean toilets too.
We quite enjoyed taking a break from some hectic sightseeing while just relaxing on the boat for the afternoon.
