We had an incredible time with Stan and Ollie. I would highly recommend this experience as the very best way to see London from the Thames but also to have what can only be described as a very exhilarating time. Simply brilliant.

We have now been on the Thames RIB Experience 4 times and still love the excitement and thrill of the trip. Whether young or old a great attraction in London.

The 20min trip was just enough to give a really fun taster. Laughed, screamed, would do it again!Of course helped that the sun was blazing down....Not so fun in the rain I guess.

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!

concur pretty much what the others have said. I did see the rocket while we were out. Can't remember the reasons for doing so, maybe it was price and where it went. Didn't have any problems with my choice and enjoyed it.
