The Original Tour is delighted to offer all customers a FREE cruise pass on the River Thames through London. Simply collect your free pass from a member of The Original Tour staff. On arriving at the pier of your choice go directly to the boat and present the pass to City Cruises staff, then hop-on and hop-off the cruise as you please. Passes are collected by the City Cruises staff on the outward journey, so for subsequent journeys you will need to show a valid Original Tour bus ticket. Cruises depart from Westminster (Big Ben), Tower of London and Greenwich Piers and hop-on, hop-off passes are valid within the same 24 hours as your bus ticket.
Most cruises are operated by modern, wheelchair-accessible, all-weather boats with panoramic windows and open-air deck areas, commentary also available in English, French, German, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish, though these facilities cannot be guaranteed.
