Absolutely brilliant trip! My sister and nephew (aged 12) came to stay for the weekend and he chose this and the Tower of London. We had a Saturday morning trip - the Ultimate London Adventure. We were met by a lovely lady on the pier who kitted us out with life jackets and checked us on to the rib, where we were greeted by Geoff and Brad. Geoff the tour guide was brilliant- really funny and spent time chatting it everyone and getting to know us all. There were 12 in total on the boat which was perfect. We went quite a long way out east with a commentary on all the sites and some really interesting and quirky facts. Having lived in London for 30 years I didn’t think there would be much new to me but I was wrong ! Once we reached a certain point, they put on the music and Brad (driver) ripped through the water at high speed. It was fantastic! So much fun. I thought this would be a trip really aimed at my nephew but me, my husband and my sister all loved it too! Would definitely do it again. Really great trip with lovely people running it. Highly recommended. Incidentally, afterwards we worked slowly down the South Bank towards London Bridge towards the Tower and we went passed all of the sites we saw on the boat which made the walk far more interesting for a 12 year old! Recommend you take warm jacket and hold on tight to your phone, but you’ll get some great pics of London too!

A fantastic adventure with Chris and Mark. The guided tour along the river was enjoyable enough, in seeing parts of London possibly forgotten about in other tours (and that building should be called "The Elbow", btw...) BUT you are really there for speeding, turning and swerving across the water; and that is truly a wild, exhilarating experience. Be aware, the boat thumps on the water when speeding, and if you are on the outside edge of the boat, you go REALLY close to the water! Highly recommended.

Wow what an experience. Loved it! You definitely need to give this a go, Boole the longer ride, it goes too quickly. Everything was great, Ross with his knowledge of the Thames & being so funny & Brad with the boat, what a thrill that was even the music played added to it all. Will definitely be booking again. Thanks guys

This trip was such fantastic fun!!! I can't wait to go back and take more family and friends. Brad, the driver, was super skilled in weaving the boat through the waves to give us the most adrenalin-fuelled experience possible! And Geoff, the tour guide, made us all laugh a lot, he knew his stuff and delivered it with humour, plus took some great photos on our phones for us to remember it by. Really fab job boys, I can't wait to see you again!
