The speed boat ride was brilliant fun and the guide and captain added to the enjoyment with an informative and fun commentary.
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
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.
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!
This was a lot of fun for our family. The tour started by walking to the end of the pier and getting equipped for the small speed boat ride. Only 12 can go at a time, so this boat is small and FAST! The tour started slowly going from the Eye to Tower Bridge. Once we were east of the bridge (and the river police), the boat opened throttle and we took off! The fast part of the tour was a total thrill and a great way to see the eastern parts of London. The boat turned around just past Canary Wharf, and sped back towards Tower Bridge. Once we were back in central London, the guide gave a very informative account of the buildings along the Thames and the history of London! Definitely worth the price
