What a great hour plus spent on the Thames with Steve and Dave. Was a little choppy (I think this made it better). Very fun and entertaining.

Had a great time on this trip-the guide (Dave) was great fun and pointed out all the sights along the way along with a few 'fun facts'! The driver Chris did a great job of giving us a thrilling and exhilarating experience. Would definitely do this again!

Excellent day out. All the staff were very accommodating as we were running late and panicking Due to our Uber taxi struggling to find us at Victoria. Very informative trip although a bit wet at times.

We started off the trip with a factual yet funny tour of London, the Thames and its surroundings from Dave our tour guide. Dave made the tour very interesting and kept us laughing throughout! We then had a thrilling boat ride with the talented Nick at the wheel! Would recommend to anyone.
