We took our 3 children (9,6&4) as a treat for our 4 year olds birthday! We had a great time, would recommend the 50 minute Canary Wharf experience as a really fun different way to see London, something the children won’t forget!

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.

London RIB Voyages or Thames RIB Experience (2 Replies)
Our first time in London is this December! We can't wait! My husband and I are from MN so the weather won't be too cold for us and we are used to being on the water. We were considering a HOHO Bus tour when we arrive to get a bit grounded before heading out and exploring on our own...but then we stumbled across the RIB tours and thought that looked a lot more fun! London RIB Voyage seems to have better reviews as Thames RIB Experience has some comments about canceling a lot and problems...More

I can hardly believe it but it's true: tomorrow is the big day, the day of my departure to London. :) I'm really excited about it and I'm sure everything is going to be perfect. It has to be, because this time I'm going with a good friend of mine and I really want to impress her. I believe we have a great program: Harrods, the British Museum and Madame Tussauds; Hecuba at The New Diorama Theatre; We Will Rock You; Thames RIB experience (really excited about this one!); Portobello Road...More
