    Well organized, easy to book. Bill ans Simon were very entertaining with great sense of humor. Boat ride could be faster and longer distance, but good enough. Will do it again.

    We had a great time riding with Jeff, our boat captain, and Izzy, our guide. They made the trip both exciting and informative! We would ride with them again. The ticketing process was easy, fast and stress free. Thank you for a great experience!

    Discover London from the River Thames on this adventurous speedboat tour. After a quick safety briefing and getting equipped with life jackets, get started on your journey of fun! Whiz past iconic sights from Big Ben, London Eye, The Shard, HMS Belfast, and more. Don't forget to stay alert because the sights really do come into view quickly on this stretch. However, don’t fret about missing a single thing because your guide will make sure you see and learn about each sight in the best way possible. Humorous delivery, included!
