This was a birthday present for someone who has worked in London for 16 years so what more could it teach? Let's put it this way... it was awesome!! Little Mike and Mike made the event fantastic with a guided tour that was great to listen to whilst speeding down the Thames. Simply brilliant! Do it!

Excellent from start to finish. We were greeted straight away by a lovely young man. Boarded the boat and the Guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and informative and made everyone welcome. Would highly recommend a go. Would definitely do it again.

This attraction is brilliant I booked this for my husbands birthday and we really enjoyed it. The narrative by Tristran and the driving by Mike made the experience really special, we have not laughed so much in ages. The right combination of information and fun and when the boat got up to speed it was great. We came off wanting... More

Great trip on Thames — reasonably priced although I wouldn't choose anything under the 40 minutes. It goes fast!

We enjoyed this ride down the Thames .... not sure the music really added to the experience, but no doubt that is a subjective view. Staff professional and attentive.
