My wife and I took some friends on a surprise trip with Tim and Steve. Their faces were a picture when they saw the lifejackets. A cold day but really exciting. Fun Aussie banter with Tim and crazy driving by Steve meant for an unforgettable hour or so. Definitely do it again this time in warmer weather. Recommend it for... More

Absolutely amazing trip, definitely good for the adrenaline junkies, the staff are amazing and the trip is super fun, really cool to view London in that way, my partner and I laughed the whole time, really worth the money.

I went on this trip as a birthday party event and it was amazing. I felt like James Bond scootting down the Thames screaming in a boat. The kids LOVED it and yes you do get wet so wear warm clothing and water proofs.

We turned up at our alloted time and were met by a young lady who sorted out our life jackets. We then made our way down to the boat and were seated quickly and off and under way. The tour goes up river and turns at the houses of parliament and then heads to just before the Isle of dogs... More

We rather luckily had the RIB to ourselves so my 15 yr old son got to steer the boat in the slow waters (under Captain's close eye). He found the James Bond theme tune amusing when we sped up. Only a short quick blast then had a great guide of local sights in André. All very informative, amusing and fun.

I recently bought tickets for a 50 minute tour via Groupon for 4 people, as I had friends visiting and it does sound like a fun experience. Unfortunately we experienced very poor customer service from start to finish and were unable to take the tour. Upon buying the vouchers I called up and reserved the time and date, I followed...

This was spoilt by being 1 1/2 hours late. Told to come back in 1/2 hour, then 1 hour then it became 1 1/2 hour.. When you have others things booked this is really not acceptable. I would say yes do this trip because it is good fun but maybe use one of the other companies. The yellow boats do... More

I am a Londoner so did not necessarily need a run down of each monument, but as a history lover it was amazing to hear of the long roots which London has and its intricately woven past with monarchy, architecture and the Thames. The boat ride itself was amazing, especially our friendly East-end Cockney tour guide. We went at full... More
