Nice ride, both slow for sight seeing and fast for fun! Thrilling music while fast and entertaining guidance while slow. Perfect trip!

Not to be missed! The best way to experience Thames River. The host is magnificent and shared rich history as we sped along the river.

And book the longest one - I almost did the 20 minute experience because I was afraid I wouldn't like it. I was SO glad we did the 50 minute one, and I still wished it was longer!
