Our Guests Love Us

We had an incredible morning trip speeding down the Thames. Captains Wilson and Naz were super friendly and made our anniversary trip one to remember. Thank you to Natasha our host who gave us a warm welcome too. You are in safe hands! Will be coming back with friends…

Totally different way to see the city - we’ve been to London before and I wanted something different for our older teens and this was perfect - exhilarating at times and excellent fun - would strongly recommend!

Wow !!! What a amazing experience down the Thames. Treat for my husband’s birthday and we were certainly not disappointed. Thrill seeking fantastic experience. Very informative from the pier right down to the captain of the speed boat. We will be back another time. Thank you for the memories xx

Great fun activity starting with a leisurely cruise down the Thames with an informative commentary. Then the speed increases once out of the busiest part of the river and it becomes a fun and thrilling ride.
- Pete
Extremely enjoyable. Not only do you get a sightseeing tour of London up the river from Westminster to Canary Wharf, you get the thrill of the high speeds and turns once past Tower Bridge. The time really flew by, would definitely do this again!
