My parents and I went for the extended trip down to the thames barrier and back for a 21st Birthday treat. It was simply amazing, Little Mike and team were very accommodating and made the trip all the more enjoyable! It was just the right mix of speeding along the river, a well chosen playlist and humour. I expected that... More

We took our 9 yr old daughter on the rib, and we all loved it! The ride was exhilarating, great fun, and the girls screamed all the way... Paul skippered the boat expertly with thrills, and James gave us the most humorous commentary about the sights to behold! Highly recommended - we will be back!!!!

This trip really is a 'must do'. We went as a family, myself and husband and our two children, 9 and 4 years old. The speed boat was very thrilling and fast at times, which the kids absolutely loved. I am sure that we will all remember the experience forever. Little Mike was an excellent guide, very funny and informative... More

I took my 12 year old son who loved every second. Yes the best part is when you go fast to the fun soundtrack, and the tour guide STACEY was fantastic. Very funny and enthusiastic and full of fun facts. We were kept warm with fleece jackets which I was reluctant to take off when the tour was over! On... More

Took our 3 and 5 yr old on board the impressive speed boat in the safe and humorous hands of Dave and Amy. Brilliant way of keeping young boys interested in sightseeing. Recommend to all.
