“Great Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Thanks To Steve for a great welcome and a fast and safe trip on a powerful inflatable craft. 45 knots from Tower Bridge to Canary Wharf and return. Then a potted guide to London Landmarks. Recommend that you wear the waterproof trousers as well as the jacket. Hold tight.

“The most fun a guided tour can be - fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

The best activity in a tourist packed day for 2 x boys aged 5 & 8 years (+ mum) … so good, we're going to re-book for dad & our toddler! We live in London, but this would be a fab tour irrespective of whether you are new to London or an old-timer! Our guide, Tom was great - informative, good pace & amusing (we did the Captain Kidd trip which was perfect for the boys). The guided tour takes place on the way up the river (from Westminster) … once you get past London Bridge the real fun starts! Speed & tunes from Miami Vice / Top Gun & Bond …

Life jackets provided as standard & there are also jackets & waterproofs available for those worried about getting wet - part of the fun!

Also great location - just under the London [EDF] Eye … so all 'facilities' available if needed (toilets, cafes etc.).

Totally recommend!

“Amazing fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Just been on the 50 minute tour and my first thought is "when can I go again?" Very professional people working there, including the delightful blonde lady organising the coats and life jackets, and the curly haired *cheeky chappie (sorry!) guide who was actually informative and genuinely funny! The highlight, though, was when the driver opened up the throttle and we went wizzing aloing, hair blowing, rock music blaring and, hold onto your hats, the sun shining. Do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks to everyone involved - great time had by all.

“So much fun - best way to sightsee in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Informative, funny and FAST. The guide was great, it was really good to see London from the angle of the river and then, once past London Bridge, take off at high speed to some 80s power ballads. Really fun.
