What an exhilarating way to see London from the water! If you like speed and a huge rush of adrenaline then this most definitely the boat trip to choose. Ticket purchase so easy, good pre instructions, and boat staff friendly. A great day out with my 15 year old son-

Fantastic experience from start to finish. No horrible queues like all the other river tours from the Dock. Rob and Jaz were brilliant on the boat. Jaz had brilliant banter and very knowledgeable and Rob gave us a really fun ride! :)

A trip at full speed and a view of the major attractions from the water. Be careful with small children who must be restrained!

Variation av sightseeing och fart. Tur med vädret gjorde detta till en kanon upplevelse

Joe and Brad were great! Had a great time and learnt so much :)
