Had such a great time, exhilarating! High speed & music had me squealing with fun and laughter. Tom is a knowledgeable and humorous guide, Dad was the driver and didn't hold back. Would do it again and again!!

We did the Thames barrier sightseeing trip and it was fun to se both the barriers, o2 arena, Greenwich, Canary Wharf, Tower, Houses of Parliament and everything in between from the river perspective. You really got close up to places you would not stop by. However if you were going for the speedboat experience you will be disappointed. Even the... More

Myself, my dad, sister and niece had a speedboat ride on July 23rd, and I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences I've had in a very long time. Taking in the sights, learning as you go along, then the adrenalin rush when Dave puts the "speed" into "speedboat", we enjoyed every second. 9 year old Ellie... More

(Review by Jamie - aged 8) On the way, we passed many famous buildings in London. It is fun and Welsh Steve loves a good joke! My favourite part was when we went very fast and the music played, there is a strong wind blowing - so hold onto your hat! On the way back Steve told us lots of... More
