It was a cold but sunny December day - Tom and Chris (the driver) were perfect hosts, the ride was exhilarating, the commentary funny - just a lovely 80 minutes. Will be returning one day soon.

What a great event! Our host was Steve and driver Dave who tweeted our pictures - hope I have got the names right. We chartered 5 speed boats for our staff christmas party. All the staff were extremely helpful from booking stage (Eileen) to the skippers on the boat. Thank you RIB for a memorial 50 minute speed boat ride.... More

We did the 4 pm, 80 minute ride down the Thames our guide was Steven and the driver was Dave...I hope I got that correct. Taking a boat ride on the Thames in December isn't on everyone's list, but we had a blast. The sun was setting and coming back into London in the dark was pretty cool. Steven did... More

We've lived in London for 4 years and finally booked to do this at the beginning of December and we were so pleased we did. Despite the freezing temperature this was by far the best thing we have EVER done in London! I recommend everybody who ever visits London to do it! Steve the tour guide was a hoot and... More

Had a 7 year old kid and 3 adults to entertain and this hit the spot. Far and away exceeded expectations. We did the Santa cruise and I wasn't expecting much, but it was the absolute highlight of a jampacked touristy London day. As far as I can tell the only difference from the other trips is that the kids... More

Terrific fun on the Thames, to see the sights of London at dusk and in the dark was one heck of an experience. Steve did a great job with his humorous commentary and the soundtrack was right up my street too. Simply a "Must Do" activity when looking for things to entertain yourselves in London.

Had a great tour on a sunny, cold December afternoon with 5 kids ranging from 7 to 17 and all of us loved it! Our guide Steve was informative and entertaining and the driver did a great job when he was allowed to put his foot down...it was worth every penny!

I was looking for fun activities in London for my boyfriend's 34th birthday and came across the rib voyage. By far, one of the best things I could have chosen for him!! We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The speed had our hearts racing, the sights were breath taking, the music was great and our guide was hilarious!! Thank you little... More

Eileen gave us a great welcome when we arrived & kitted us out with nice warm coats. Steve did a amazing tour, informative, fun & great for the kids. Flash drove at lightning speeds which left us with massive grins on our faces. Excellent trip which we would definitely recommend.
