What to Expect

Experience a wild and fantastic River Thames boat cruise that is fun for all ages. You will climb aboard a high-speed vessel that offers non-traditional views of England's capital at speeds of up to 35 knots.

You will be given full waterproof gear to protect you from the spray, and, of course full safety briefings and a life jacket - just in case! Named by leading listings magazine Time Out as a "must-do" experience, both visitors and residents of London will be thrilled with this outing.

Speed under the capital’s bridges, and marvel at landmarks such as the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and South Bank from an exclusive vantage point. Music floats through the air via the onboard sound system, as you power out toward the Docklands.

High-brow banter is provided by an award-winning comedian guide, whose cheery anecdotes include narration about the headquarters of MI5 and the modern skyscrapers of Canary Wharf.

A really organised, well executed adventure. A fantastic experience that I would book again and again. My family 2 adults and 2 kids (13 & 8) loved every second. First class

We thoroughly enjoyed the ride as well as the guide, Tom.

This turned out to be a very enjoyable time for the adults as well as a 6-year-old and a 15-year-old.. The views from the boat are lovely and the commentary on the way back was very entertaining.

Tons of fun for our 11 & 13 year old boys with just enough funny info.

The choppy Thames provided a bouncy and scary ride for our boys (11 & 13) who had just about had enough of our sight seeing. When we eventually slowed down and I peeled my knuckles from the handlebar, the guide gave us lots of funny facts about sights along the waterside. Like the Sphinxes were installed backwards and some of Harry Potter was filmed from our very boat!
