My husband wanted to do this with our boys (nearly 7) - I wasn't that fussed as thought it wasn't cheap. HOWEVER, what an experience! Amy our guide was great and knew her stuff, plus put our boys at ease. Dave our captain pretty much nailed it after Tower Bridge - and I didn't expect to enjoy it nearly as... More

Thank you Chris for our fantastic trip for us and our 2 teenagers up the Thames. As others have said so well organised with Warm coats, excellent speed thrills to a great beat and "little" mike was not only very knowledgeable but very funny and entertaining - would recommend to anyone

Excellent Thames high speed thrill - well organised from the beginning with a very hospitable meet and greet coupled with a knowledgeable James (Brummy Boy) narrating our experience. A first class eclectic adventure for the speed merchants and a top rate staff. phil edwards

Not a cheap experience but definitely worth the money! Our two boys loved the speed and the twists and turns that Nick incorporated. James made us feel very welcome on board and shared his knowledge about the fab London sights we were passing once we had slowed down. We had a lovely sunny day but still welcomed the warmth of...

We had a trip on the 11th April on Thames Rocket Not only were we supplied with warm coats and a warm service. The ride on the boat was amazing, fast, twisting and turning. Both adults and children loved it especially the music with the journey. James was welcoming and very good on keeping up the enthusiasm on the boat.... More

This is our 2nd time on this amazing experience, which is both informative and exhilarating at the same time. I'll never forget the 'ear to ear' grin on my 8 year olds face!! James aka 'Brummy Boy' was superb in giving my son some interesting facts, which he remembered 2nd time round - result! Highly recommended!!

Fantastic experience, loved by me and my 7 year old. Many thanks to the crew, especially James our guide. Not cheap but worth every single penny. Would recommend to everyone. A million times better than the London eye.

This was a birthday treat for my girlfriend. A zip up and down the Thames on a speed boat takes some beating. The crews are always tops and 'Little Mike' certainly was brilliant. Great sights, that you wont get from dry land, and good photo opportunities. Nice bursts of speed at suitable places complete with appropriate music belting out. Its... More
