Excellent day to spend a morning sightseeing in London. Our guide Stacey made the experience even more fun and the speedboat was amazing. Brilliant stuff!

It was booked as a birthday surprise. Really enjoyed the experience especially when we were past tower Bridge and up to speed. A little pricy but great fun.

Absolutely excellent day out. Been on many many Thames trips but this was one with a difference. Great captain/pilot and an excellent guide, Ginge. Few us with many new facts about the Thames. Was a cold night but we have some gentle moments and then others when the throttle was fully down. Great stuff. Worth the money.

This was simply fantastic. Stacey plus David at the helm were terrific hosts during this mini history trip of London from the Thames, taking in the sights whilst Stacey humours you with facts. What happens as you pass under Tower Bridge (arguably the best way to view this beautiful landmark) comes a little unexpected. Cue the music, as David plunges... More

Went on the RIB speedboat yesterday afternoon. Gorgeous hot day, sun shining, perfect. Crusing down the river with Ian at the helm and taffy Steve telling us about the sights in his marvellous hillarious way (should be on the stage Steve!). Then...music kicks in...and BAMMM!! Up to 30 knots..twisting and turning, dipping round the turns so the edge of the... More

We traveled all the way to the Thames Barrier and back to the London Eye , seeing lots of sights on the way . We learnt lots of facts about London and saw the police boat and... More

Being in our early 70's we approach the Rib experience with some trepidation. there was no need to worry. Warmly greeted and everything clearly explained. The guide Stephen gave a very informative and humorous commentary as we cruised slowly down to Tower bridge and into the de restricted speed limit. Captain Dave made sure that the next 10 minutes were... More

Team day out was made even more brilliant by a trip with Steve (Taffy) and Dave at London Rib Voyages, not only were they a hilarious double act, but I have to say Steve (Taffy) was fabulous and telling us facts about London that I've never heard on any other tour. Great fun and definitely a must do if your... More
