We went on a freezing Saturday afternoon but the trip was so exciting we forgot about the cold! I would reccommend it to anyone, it's just the right mix of excitement and sightseeing. I loved the way they presented the trip with the loud music, the speed and the guide was informative and funny. All of the staff were very... More

Took my son for a 13th birthday treat. He loved it. Ky our tour guide was funny and enthusiastic and made the trip really good fun. Dave,the boat driver (not the correct term! ), even stopped the boat under Tower bridge so everyone could sing Happy Birthday to my son. Highly recommended.

A superb trip, with an excellent balance of adrenaline and sightseeing. A must do experience for anyone visiting London. The guide Tom was excellent, funny, friendly and knowledgeable. Ian the skipper was clearly very experienced and knew how to get the best out of the Water Jet powered RIB. They were both more than happy to have a conversation after... More

Went on the 10am slot on a bright sunny October morning with my partner & two children(9and 5) well what a way to blow away the cobwebs! Little mike gave us a very informative (without being boring) commentary as we cruised down the river sightseeing (while we observed the speed limit) then once out of the speedlimit zone we went...

Our booking on a thursday afternoon was cancelled because of not enough people joining. Reschedule to Saturday. It was cooold and rainy morning, we were wandering whether we make the right decision joining this tour. Especially after putting on the windbreaker and life jacket supplied. They are damp and smelly. Luckily our guide, little Mike, is very good. He told... More

My husband arranged this for my 60th today. When he told me I thought he was crazy! How wrong could I be! It was brilliant, just totally brilliant. Matt was a great guide and even though I'm a Londoner I learnt things I didn't know before. Skipper was Andy and even my cynical husband was impressed by his skills. I... More
