Would highly recommend this on your visit to London. Tour guides Ky and Ian were great. Ky gave a really interesting guide on sights of London while at the same time making us all laugh. I took my sons age 6 and 11, both loved it!! One of the best tourist attractions ever been on, great for whole family!!

Little Mike was a little dynamo; making each person feel very special; striking the right balance between wit and information on the Thames & its landmarks whilst allowing time to simply be exhilarated by the superb skills of Chris in the driving seat. An inspired choice of music which just added to the fun. All the staff were amazing from... More

My husband bought a voyage as a birthday present. We happened to have fantastic warm weather for an October evening which added to the enjoyment. However, our crew provided us with warm waterproof jackets & trousers (I was wearing a dress, so opted not to wear the trousers; but was warm enough) - we were also provided with life-jackets and...

Have wanted to do this for ages. It was such fun. Little Mike and Chris were great. If you only do one thing while in London, this would be it for me! I shall definitely be going again!

Fab Mancunian guide, Stacey, was great fun & v knowledgeable. Lovely to see beautiful London from the water & the high-speed bit felt so safe as Andy the skipper was ex-river police! Coming back to do the full-on speed one ASAP! Loved it! As did 12 yr old son. "Mummy, I haven't felt this alive and happy for ages!" #adrenaline... More

This was our second rib journey. Last one was in the rain which was very wet but hilarious. This was in the sun and a great laugh again. The crew, Kai and Ian, were great and they make the trip such a good laugh. Well worth a trip and a great, fun way to see some of London.
