  • Fantastic experience, we've done this 3 times now and its great every time. Did break the barrier experience for my sons bday, it was so thrilling and its one of the greatest ways of seeing London. The guys who work on the boats are very friendly and humorous and make the experience all the more enjoyable. Steve and Bill were our guides/driver and were fantastic, full of humour and interesting facts on sights through the shorelines of London. Well worth it, definitely worth doing on trip to London.
  • Picked this boat cruise because of it's added thrill seeker extra! I took the 50 minute tour, starting at the London eye and reaching Canary wharf at it's furthest point. Great tour guide giving facts on famous landmarks on the river and history story's of London's bridges. After cruising and the talk the captain sped us up the thames weaving across the waters at high speed. Fantastic experience and a great and different view of London. Highly recommended.
  • The host were amazing! Very funny and informative. My favourite thing I have done in London! We got this as a buy a gift and it was brilliant!!! My only regret is I didn't take a go pro. Amazing well worth the money beautiful scenes, professional staff, good songs, nice cocktail. Make sure you take a go pro taking photos with your phone when going fast is hard work. Can't rate this enough!!!!!!!!!! Please go!!
  • Amazing experience. A unique way to explor this beautiful city. At first they sailing really fast, letting us just have fun from the experience and later on the guide explains about the city and all the buildings we see around.
  • What a ride for thrill seekers Had a great time. I originally thought the ride was not very long however it turned out to be just right. Our tour guide was great and very funny and did his job really well. Also a big thank you to our driver who gave us a great fast ride up the Thames. It's a great way to see and learn about London. Highly recommend. Well done.
