A memorable day out on the River Thames for my partner and myself. Will definitely use these guys again. Highly recommended. Professional, helpful crew - and very knowledgeable about life and history, on and alongside the Thames. The cloudless, windless day made the experience doubly pleasurable, although there is plenty of room and big windows on the enclosed lower deck.

Really nice experience - you get beautiful views of the city from a different perspective. The staff is really friendly and the “non official” guide gives you very interesting tips and info in a super funny way - facts you wouldn’t know about otherwise. I’d definitely do it again, with friends or family. Really good idea for tourists/visitors
