Went on the 5pm tour on 21st February with hubby...London was just starting to light up around this time and the combination of Toms commentary (fact and fiction!) and Dave's skippering along with the loud speaker music blaring out makes this one of thee best experiences in London. Absolutely loved it....speeding along the Thames with the wind in your hair... More

Who found that he had been misinforming his clients as to the builder of the monument to the Great Fire of London,... More

Great Guys. Have never been so far down the Thames, brilliant sights on the way down, a nod to the Harbour Police... More

My husband and I went on a rib voyage during the February half term! I have to say it was the highlight of our trip to London. Having worked and lived in London I didn't want to do the typical tourist attractions - so was absolutely delighted when were given this trip as a Birthday present. We are both adrenaline... More
