    What a fabulous trip. It is the first time we have been on a boat trip up the Thames, but because of this trip we will definitely be going again. From the online booking process to getting off at the end of the ride, it was plain sailing (excuse the pun). Everything was so easy. The rib trip was brilliant, although you couldn’t hear any commentary, it was just so much fun speeding up the Thames. The pilot did some twists and turns during the high speed section and it was brilliant. I would definitely recommend this company, and I look to forward to booking with them again.

    Quick boat once past Tower Bridge. Not overly demanding, even though it was a bit choppy on the water. No spray went over us, but me may have been just lucky. Sit at front to avoid loud speaker in your ear! No bags on trip but they are locked securely away before.

    Amazing! Perfect combo between the bucolic ballad the time to get out of the tourist areas where we take the care to show us the outstanding monuments of the banks of the Thames and the strong moment in sensation we send the car to all Berzingue through the waves music blasting at the cash: watch out, it's mind-blowing!
