This unique Hot Tub Boat Guided Historical Docklands Cruise will surely create memories and have you wanting to recommend to friends.  I was thrilled to experience a new activity in London by jumping into a toasty hot tub that was fun, social and informative.  I recommend this for: * Returning tourists - Continue to be amazed by everything London has to offer. * Small groups - Birthdays, Bachelorette/Bachelor parties or work outing. * Locals - Even you’d be surprised how much you could learn about London.  * Couples - Creative date idea. Top Tip: This is perfect for the winter but if visiting in the summer, consider checking out their BBQ Boats for an alternative cool summer activity. 

I can't recommend this experience enough! I was a little hesitant about booking it going into Autumn/Winter, but don't let the cold put you off! Once you are in the hot tub at 38 degrees, you have no idea it is cold anymore! Our tour guide, Gary was great fun, amusing, full of knowledge and made the cruise really enjoyable. You get to see Canary Wharf from views you wouldn't otherwise get and learn about its history. With a drink in your hand, all there is to do is relax and soak in the London vibes. Don't let people walking by put you off - they are only jealous and it's great to wave as you cruise along! Good value for money and an experience not to be missed if you are in the area.

The Hot Tub Boat Experience was certainly one of the most memorable activities I've done while in London! It's such a unique experience in one of my favourite areas of the city - Canary Wharf. I went solo, and quickly felt comfortable with the other members of my group: the guide was super knowledge and the group was fantastic. We shared experiences, learnt some history and fun facts about the area and left REALLY REALLY relaxed. It was pretty chill outside but the temperate of the water was so warm that it felt really good! Highly recommend regardless of the weather and whether you have company or not! Thank you GetYourGuide and Skuna Boats for this amazing experience!

What a way to explore Canary Wharf! The hot tub is super warm, making it easy to relax as you float around the wharf. As a mixed group cruise, Gary, our Captain and tour guide, made it comfortable and amusing as he pointed out some interesting facts about the area's history. Excellent service, nice heated changing rooms (welcomed when it's cold), a good range of drinks on offer and plenty of entertainment. If you want to explore London with a memorable experience, this is highly recommended!

It was an amazing experience as we went through the tall buildings in Canary wharf. Definitely, a unique and different way to see canary wharf. It is something I have never heard of or done before, a hot tub in a canal. I personally love hot tubs and it is definitely an experience to go for in winter. We booked a shared experience so, there were 4 other people, but you can also book your own hot tub boat if you don't want to share with strangers. It is amazing, totally recommend it.
