We went for the 50 minute tour as I wanted a bit more of a speed ride and the cost was £42 I think. It was excellent and went faster than I had imagined. I did it a video to give you some idea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4FPAV9BcLY - just copy & paste. We had Andy & Sam, they were brilliant, very enthusiastic... More

My cousins and I took a ride last Sunday in the freezing cold, pouring rain and it was booming brilliant! I've lived in London all my life and have never seen the river in such an enjoyable way. Really great fun and good value too! Props to Little Mike the guide and Chris the skipper who really made the whole... More

I surprised my wife for her 30th birthday last month and she absolutely loved it! The guide was informative and funny and we both learnt some new things about the different buildings and bridges. Once you get past London Bridge the music and real fun starts! They put their foot down and you are speeding down the Thames! I would... More

We came on a trip on Sunday and could not have loved it more! I'm a Londoner but haven't ever seen London like this before! Great guiding (can't remember the name of our guide - sorry!) - we were told things I'd never even heard about London before. They definitely kept our attention. The speed section was incredible, zipping along... More

Organised a weekend trip to London to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. Arranged the usual London Eye, Madame Tussauds etc.but we wanted something different for him as well as a surprise. My wife found the London RIB voyages and booked for the 4 of us (son's girlfriend was well). On mentioning a "boat trip down the Thames" to him, it's... More

As a big birthday celebration for the family, we were entertained and enlightened by Tom, with Chris at the helm. To begin, we cruised down the Thames at a fair lick, which we initially thought was as fast as was permitted, as we were still overtaking most of the clippers and cruisers sharing the river. Then wham! Chris let rip... More

We went on the Rib yesterday , it was cold and raining but that didnt stop us having fun! Tom and Ian were excellent and we laughed for most of the journey! The fast part was fantastic and the music was great especially the theme tune to 'the bill' as we went past the water police! We will absolutely be... More

We had a fun and fantastic time on this thrilling boat trip. Ian our driver and Welsh Steve made the trip all the more enjoyable, particularly steve's informative and amusing commentary and everyone on the boat enjoyed steve's Halloween sweets. Would definitely recommend if you want an alternative sightseeing trip. Thanks Guys The Bond Family from Essex.

Fantastic fun. A grey day but the rain held off just long enough for a great time. Tom the guide was very funny yet still interesting. Kept the kids engaged on the slow part of the trip. Thrills provided by Chris the pilot where he was allowed to open the throttle. 007 music a nice touch past the MI5 building.... More

We booked this trip for bit fun, high speed up the river. It was all that and more, some fantastic views that you can't get on foot or by bus. The guys were great at making it all fun and giving out the info to explain just we were seeing. We will be back to try the trips next time.
