Fantastic experience again, having done our first one with friends about 2 months previously, we decided to do as a surprise for our family, including to two grandchildren, ages 14 and 11 and it was even better. It’s amazing to travel along the Thames and take in all the history and RIB Experience is brilliant and very informative. Also, being a Londoner, it makes you appreciate what a great city we live in.

Having missed a week away with the extended family due to covid-19 we decided to treat ourselves to an outing to the Thames Barrier and it was absolutely brilliant, money well spent. From Embankment to London Bridge it is relatively sedate with an excellent guided commentary by Ollie, and from London Bridge you absolutely blast up to Greenwich at high speed, then you slow for some more commentary, and then blast again up to and through the Barrier itself. Coming back was high speed from the barrier all the way to London Bridge. We thought we would get wet (from the journey rather than rain), but didn't, although we were given plastic ponchos. Everything had been sanitised to make it covid-compliant. It was a really excellent way to spend 75 minutes and although we have lived near and worked in London for years, none of us had been that far down the Thames before. Great fun.

Mooie ervaring om Londen eens vanaf het water te bekijken. Na Tower Bridge vol gas met ruim dertig knopen over het water knallen is iets wat je niet snel vergeet .

My 15 year old son needed some excitement in his life so we booked this hoping for some speed and a bit of fun. It was money well spent. We both had a great time. George was a fantastic tour guide: award winning cheesy jokes and he quickly built a good rapport with us all (not easy to do when you can only see the backs of people’s’ heads!). He sprinkled in just the right amount of factual knowledge. The speedy bits were fantastic. Both my son and I loved it. Top tip: not many toilets are open in the area but there is a very clean toilet that costs just 50p which is on the path heading up towards Costa.

They do NOT deliver what they promise. We rented the entire boat for a birthday celebration. Spoke to the owner who convinced me to go with them versus another company by saying they were a ‘small family business’. Promised the ‘James Bond’ boat. Turns out they either didn’t deliver on it or it’s just a scam. It’s the exact same boat (at least the one we were on) - they just say ‘this was the boat blah blah blah’ and a few words about the movie that’s it. Promised a bottle of bubbly - they forgot about it! And then after the experience wanted to give me a cheap bottle of Prosecco with plastic glasses to take home. Huh? Cameras didn’t work - so no photographs as promised - found out after the fact! And get this - their person told us that their video cameras apparently are non-functional so we didn’t get the promised video (we had agreed to pay the extra 25 pounds) And their boat had engine trouble halfway they although it got fixed fairly quickly. Other than that it was fun but if they can’t deliver on the basics or what they promise - then why go with this company? Bottom line - if you want pictures or video of your experience - go with other companies that have the same boat.

We were a party of three, booked under one name. There was no boarding process in place to ensure we were sat near each other. I was sat away from group. We had previously used Thames Rockets who boarded by group names. The staff who facilitated the boarding were simply not interested in what they were doing. No effort was made to connect with their customers. If you fancy an all round good trip use Thames Rockets.

If you only do one thing on your visit to London you simply must do this! It had been many years since I last had a go but this time the Gods were smiling and it was a hot sunny day in old London town so the wind blowing through my hair was the ideal way to cool down. George was presenting and he was very informative on the slower parts. I love being on the river especially so close to the water unlike the cruise's. Then the fast parts of the trip are equal to any white knuckle ride I have been on and you get a real sense I just how large a city is London and the Thames are. I would say the whole trip is the most fun you can have with your clothes on! marvellous!
