This was an amazing experience, combining speed, history, speed, fun and more speed. Craig was funny and knowledgeable about the London landmarks. I learnt a few new bits of trivia to recount down the pub which as a jaded local I wasn't expecting. Once Dave opened up the throttle the experience went from "really lovely boat trip" to "Oh heck,... More

A truly fabulous thing to do, especially with London basking in the sun. I took our 3 children for my birthday treat and we all loved it! We were looked after so well from the moment we arrived. Craig was our guide and Dave was behind the wheel. Lots of London facts were learnt before the real exhilaration started and... More

This is truly a very fun and exciting trip, worth every penny! Under the firm hand of skipper Dave and his executive Craig, we had a nice trip up and down river Thames (or, after Blackfriar: the North Sea if we're to believe Craig 😃). We did the trip with our six year old daughter, who will talk about this... More

Setting off at a sedate pace we heard about London’s history, some we knew and some we didn’t (I’d never heard of the AXE factor before!). Our guide Craig, was so entertaining and knowledgeable. However, once the history was over and we passed the Police pontoon, Nick our captain let rip and from that point on we hung on for... More

We booked 2 London Ribs for a very special trip for 22 people down to the Thames Barrier and back. Despite concerns about getting wet (from the river, not from above) everyone remained completely dry, even though our journey to the Barrier and back was at around 35 knots. Little Mike was very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent guided... More

Our daughter bought this for our anniversary. I was a bit unsure about it at first but from the minute the ride started, Ian and James made it amazing. A great way to see London.

Fantastic adrenalin rush mixed with entertaining facts and educational info. Great hour spent on the river. Two teenagers aged 17 and 14 loved it too! Well done to Steve and Andy for a great experience! Well worth the money!
