Very much fun on a beautiful August afternoon!! After clearing the speed zones past Tower Bridge, they were able to open up the V8 engines and it was great gliding over the Thames River at speed with the wind in your hair! Good sightseeing guide on board as well.
Exactly as described Good fun and very safe but I would recommend a hat and scarf as it is very windy and cold at high speed
Guide was quite witty too.
Took this exciting ride last Saturday with my 22 year old daughter and we loved it! The ride starts off at a pleasant cruising speed as the friendly and funny guide points out major landmarks along the way. About 20 minutes into the ride they hit the throttle and crank up the music as you race down the river towards Canary Wharf and then back again. Just the right amount of speed , action and thrills for people of all ages.
I highly recommend this tour!!! Its a lot of fun, you see all the major sights along the Thames and you are in a small boat - so it's almost a private experience all the normal Thames sightseeing boats are so big and crowded.
Definitely the way to see the Thames! No leisurely boat ride here...
An excellent cruise--everything I had hoped. Guides were funny as well shared a lot of London knowledge
Fantastic trip - excellent commentary by Michael different to the usual run of the mill boat trips - much more personalised and an exhilarating turn of speed added to a brilliant experience. Would recommend it to anyone!!
Unbelievably good even though the high speed bit nearly scared us out of 5 years of growth. Saw so much of London that is never seen by road. Truely a once in a lifetime trip.
This is a fantastic way to see the sites of London, particularly if you've already been to London before and have done the bus ride. It's fun and we saw several sites you wouldn't normally see if you were on land.
Good times, great to see away from the standard sites past the Tower Bridge. Guide and Capt were a hoot!
This tour was fun! Insightful, great views, perfect length - our guide, Michael, was hilarious! They had plenty of warm/dry gear if you need it.
Super easy, super fun (and cheeky musical interludes)...didn't hurt hat I saw MI6 headquarters.
We had an awesome time! Wish we could faster the entire trip! Bust it was a blast!
SUPER TRIP GOOD COMMENTARY APART HMS BELFAST IS NOT A BATTLESHIP ITS A CRUISER0
GOOD SAFETY GEAR,
Absolutely fantastic! Such good fun. Informative with great guides. Will def do this again!
This is a really great thing to do in London - you get shown some of the landmarks, where they are etc but the perspective is from the river Thames which changes things somewhat. Th e other part of the fun is when you reach the lower part of the Thames and speed increases. Really good - Quick tip is take a woolly hat - we did this in November and we were glad we had one
Wonderful! Well organised. Smoothly run!
What brilliant fun, great guide gave good info. The bit after Tower Bridge where the boat goes full out was fabulous! We would highly recommend this trip. We plan to do it again with our adult kids.
