What People Say

We really value your feedback! In fact, we never go overboard with an advertising budget as the majority of our business comes through that great old tradition: word of mouth. Yes, our Thames adventures speak for themselves and we are passionate about making your day with an experience you’ll never forget.


Trip is in two parts….a very informative slower trip / guided tour and then about a 10 to 15 blast. Good combination and very enjoyable!

Had a great time and so will you. Get there early to get the front seats. Bring along your childhood and let yourself go. Wear something warm and take some gloves. Your hands get cold holding on for dear life. Whoop whoop.

Had a great time on here and is one of my favourite attractions in London I would highly recommend this if you are into going fast lol. Especially great if it’s a nice day remember to make sure you put your water proof trousers on the correct way around as they have a small opening in the front, and as I had that around the back water got in as my seat got wet. Great day out

My son and I felt this was the highlight of our trip to London this year – Mummy was shopping and the boys had a blast
Sarah gave us a very amusing summary of the sites while we were in the speed limit zone but then Salty opened up the throttle from Tower Bridge past London Excel and back with exhilarating slaloms and wake riding to some epic rock anthems. This has to be the most fun way to see London – it got a 10/10 from us even the next day – well done Salty and Sarah!

I booked the Rib for a private Hire for my friends Stag Do. Everything run smoothly from booking the rib to the tour itself on the day. Some great sights and definitely an adrenaline rush especially when the pilot picks up speed. I would highly recomend this experience!!

We took our 15 year old grandson and all agreed it was a great experience. We turned up at our specified time, were provided with anoraks and life jackets, boarded quickly and given a brief safety talk. Our guide was funny, informative and the whole trip was great, especially when twisting and turning at high speed out to the Thames barrier ..what a super skipper!


Went on the 50 minute thrill ride yesterday with a friend. Absolutely brilliant and so so fast!! Felt very safe with Charlie and his very amusing commentary. John the Captain certainly delivered a thrilling ride. Lots of twist and turns ……. amazing!!
Weather was not very kind, but hey it all adds to the fun. A great way to see the sights of London. Will do it again.

I organised this trip for my partners 50th birthday. It was worth every penny. From booking, to directions, friendliness of the staff, to the actual ride itself was fantastic.

    Ahoy there Rob and Tony!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you for a fab trip and for the photos for Jasmine’s birthday. It is definitely the most fun I’ve had on the water! Oh, and the history stuff’s not bad either! Thank you both for being so hospitable. We will certainly be recommending you and to bring others with us for a second trip next summer. See you again soon.

    We all loved the speed up at Canary Wharf but the kids really loved all the stuff about the history of pirates and Captain Kidd – Execution Dock gave us all the shivers.
    With very best wishes
