High speed Sunday afternoon fun - Despite being very early in the season (British weather) and our party of 2 being the only people on board, the trip still ran as promised and we had an amazing time . Crew (driver and narrator) were very friendly and stopped at certain points to describe various interesting views and information. High speed thrills and some great music also . We will be back again in summer hopefully...

A Great Thing To Do In London - This was a great experience, loads of fun with really friendly few who couldn't do enough to make sure we enjoyed it. Very comfortable boat with shock absorbing seats too. The very best view of the Tower of London from the water too. We also crossed the Greenwich Meridian, pretty cool.

Fun and safe! - What a nice activity to do with family and friends. We are a family of 5 with 3 children age 17, 11 and 9. We had a wonderful time, it was fun hitting the high speed zones on the Thames but also felt safe. Thank you Debbie for all the information you shared about London and landmarks we saw during the cruise.
