“A Different Way To See London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Took our nephew out on this trip as he's a bit of an adrenalin junkie! We had brilliant weather and once we got past the Police launch it was time to let rip! The music added to the experience and there was plenty of time to get the sense of exhilaration around Canary Wharf. Great to see the usual sights of London from a different perspective and great humorous commentary from the guys on board. Good job, and thanks!!

“"It's a must" even if you live in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Brought this for my hubby's birthday back in June. No hassle to book it up & we just racked up with our tickets no queuing. Got offered extra waterproof jacket & kitted out with life jacket. The first part of our journey we made our way up the Thames with Tom, the most witty and funny tour guide you could ask for, pointing out all the landmarks as we went. Then the best bit is when the boat driven by another Tom, lets rip with the sound track of James Bond blasting in your ears......... Ride lasts aprox 50mins but is worth every penny. I can't rave about this trip enough. Thanks to the team for making our dayout in London something to remember.............

“Educational, exhilarating, exciting, excellent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Went with my family (youngest is 7). We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, the very entertaining and informative commentary by Amy and the thrill of the speed of the boat over the water - expertly handled by Ian.

“London Rib James Bond experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Brilliant, so much fun! We went as part of a team day out in London and it was great. You get to see the sights of London as well as go really fast in the speed boat. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

“Fab way to see London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Went with my partner for his birthday. The boat didn't work on the way out so most of our bouncing was near Canary Wharf. My the commentary was good though and the fast rides were excellent. It is honestly the best way to travel on the Thames!!!
