We did this as a group of 6 on a miserable rainy Tuesday morning, instead of the normal bus sight seeing tour. From the second we arrived Debbie and Dave could not do enough for everybody, from giving directions via a text a few days before and waterproofs to hand warmers and making sure everyone was okay.

This is a must do trip for anyone visiting London no matter what the weather, the can of lager which was in with the price was a nice finishing touch and sort of warmed us up.

All 6 of our group all said we would do the trip again (hopefully better weather) if we visit London again.

Thank you very much Colin, it was a chilly day but you were all up for it, which was brilliant! We'd be delighted to see you anytime and hopefully next time the beer will cool you down. :)

We had an amazing trip with Thames Tigers to celebrate my boyfriend’s retirement. From the moment we arrived, Dave & Debbie were so welcoming, helping with life jackets and even offering us extra layers. We had plenty of photo opportunities and they made sure we were all comfortable and fully briefed before we set off …
And then wow… what an exhilarating ride .. absolutely loved zipping up the Thames .. felt like we were in a Bond movie. Fabulous music really gets you in the party mood and what a lovely touch to be served beer & soft drinks on board. Debbie is a fantastic tour guide/photographer and got to see all the famous landmarks from a whole new perspective. 100% recommend this trip … next time we will go for a summer evening so we can experience the sun set .. can’t wait! Thank you Dave, Debbie & Thames Tigers x

This experience of a tour up the Thames outshone any boat any of our group has ever been on..anywhere!!

Dave and Debbie's experience and friendliness was delivered with expertise and perfection!

There was 12 in our group and we were blessed with a beautiful sunny warm day, which was a bonus!

Given a safety briefing prior to boarding and helped on with our life jackets.

Heading up the Thames towards Greenwich we passed many boats and familiar scenery, and upon increasing the speed..it was unbelievably comfortable (really surprised how well the suspension worked with the seats) but at the same time thrilling!!
we all felt completely safe and soaked up the entire atmosphere.

The music in the background was perfect for the experience..like don't stop me now by Queen.

When we headed back to London Bridge, we all had some prosecco, and Debbie obliged using our phones to take photos of us all.

Given a talk about some of the buildings we passed gave us an insight to info many of us didn't know about.

Highly recommend this experience..and deffo would do it again if/when in London.

Thankyou Dave and Debbie

We loved having you on! Your charter's enthusiasm was so catching that it radiated through the whole day. As each trip returned the next group could see how happy the trip before was and it made everyone so joyful. Look forward to seeing you again sometime. Deb & Dave :) :)

We visited on the 26th March, it was a beautiful day in London, perfect weather for a speedboat trip on the Thames! It was my son’s 8th birthday and the crew made him feel super special, even getting the boat to sing Happy Birthday to him. My son and his Dad had the best time on the boat, they said it was exhilarating and a great way to see the sights. We’ll definitely be back again and maybe I’ll brave the sea sickness and give it a go myself! 🤣
Thanks again for a great trip and being so friendly, from the welcome, the health and safety chat and the boat trip itself. You helped make a little boys day!

This was a work team outing and everyone had a great time. A really fantastic trip! Amazing views of London mixed with high speed boating. Debbie and Dave were fantastic hosts. Very organised - messaged reminder details a few days in advance and called to check on the day. We had to cancel the trip the first time due to rail strikes and this was no problem at all - moved us to another date without any fuss at all. Thank you Debbie and Dave!

I took the last trip of the day on the Thames Tigers speedboat after having seen their boat whilst I was walking by the Thames, it was a spur of the moment decision as it was a lovely warm and calm day. The safety briefing and life jacket fitting was very professional and I felt our safety was high on the priority list for Thames Tigers. We boarded on time and set off gently with Debbie pointing out some of the sights and finishing off the safety briefing, then once we were clear of Tower Bridge we went full throttle down to Greenwich. The sensation of speed was really good when you're low down skimming along the top of the water, after another chat from Debbie about some of the sights at Greenwich we set off at full throttle again down to the Millennium Dome where we executed an exhilarating high speed turn to head back up to Tower Bridge, the trip finished off with complimentary drinks and the opportunity to take photos of us on the boat. Definitely recommended as an exciting and safe way to see the lower Thames/London landmarks.

Having visited London numerous times for short city breaks, I’ve done lots of fun activities in the city but a High Speed Boat Ride with the Thames Tigers has to be one of the best things I’ve done. Our guide Debbie was so lovely and welcoming. Bouncing off the waves and carving some high speed turns on this powerboat, my family and I couldn’t stop smiling as it was such fun and an incredible way to view some of the city’s most iconic sights. All that was missing was the James Bond theme tune. If you’re a bit of a thrill seeker or just looking for something a little different to do whilst visiting London then get yourself a trip booked with the Thames Tigers. You will not regret it.

Great experience from start to finish. The couple running Thames Tigers , Debbie and Dave could not be friendlier or more helpful. Great way to see some of Londons best sites. The trip lasted approximately 45 minutes . It is quite thrilling when the boat is going at top speed but when it has to slow Debbie gives you some interesting information on the landmarks you are passing. Highly recommended.

Absolutely fantastic experience. ..Exhilarating. This was definitely the highlight of our 3 day trip in London, my 10 & 11 year old boys haven’t stopped taking about it. It’s a brilliantly run company, Debbie and Dave were really welcoming with free soft drinks or beer offered after the exhilarating ride and whilst seeing the sights. Highly recommend it.
