  • Fantastic experience, we've done this 3 times now and its great every time. Did break the barrier experience for my sons bday, it was so thrilling and its one of the greatest ways of seeing London. The guys who work on the boats are very friendly and humorous and make the experience all the more enjoyable. Steve and Bill were our guides/driver and were fantastic, full of humour and interesting facts on sights through the shorelines of London. Well worth it, definitely worth doing on trip to London.
  • Picked this boat cruise because of it's added thrill seeker extra! I took the 50 minute tour, starting at the London eye and reaching Canary wharf at it's furthest point. Great tour guide giving facts on famous landmarks on the river and history story's of London's bridges. After cruising and the talk the captain sped us up the thames weaving across the waters at high speed. Fantastic experience and a great and different view of London. Highly recommended.
