This rocket ship provided a fast and furious river ride and with a class act host. Probably our highlight of London. Had an awesome time on the speed boat with Bill on the mic and Rich behind the wheel. Highly recommended!

The guide/man fellow was called Dave and the skipper was Rich. Dave was extremely friendly and welcoming,informative,funny,made us relaxed and really made the boat trip worth while.
A brilliant experience made even better having this chap on board. Would definitely recommend it to others and do it again

Thank you very much for the thrill, the fun and the info for everything around the Thames . Steven and Al we'll definitely coming back!

Super fun way to do a little exploration of the Thames, especially if kids are traveling. The kids thanked us for taking us on something a little more current than most of the other exploring we did. Geoff and Doug did a really great job of keeping us entertained and safe. Also, we hit crazy traffic trying to get to the pier and were a little late running all the way across the bridge to get there and they waited for us - I thought that was very nice.

There aren't enough words to express how amazing this ride was. It wasn't only fun and exciting, our guide Geoff was the absolute BEST. He was thrilled to have four passengers from so far away Mexico. He was charming and funny, it was an absolute blast!

After the ride, my family and I headed to The Globe. We went on a guided tour there and actually took our sweet time. On our way out, we chuckled as we crossed the Millennium Bridge, which Geoff hilariously mentions on the RIB cruise. We stopped in the middle of it for a moment to take pictures and spotted a red RIB coming our way. We said to each other: Wonder if that's Geoff ... Lo and behold, it was him! We waved in hopes that he would see us, and he did! He waved back with a surprised look on his face, the RIB sped under the bridge and emerged on the other side, Geoff waving us goodbye and blowing us kisses as they drove off.

Thanks Geoff and Nick! Next trip to London, we're definitely taking this ride again and hoping we get you guys as our guide and captain once more.

We took this cruise in August 2017. t was informational as we cruised pout to the high speed area, then a lot of fun as we opened it up on the Thames. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun, and I would recommend this cruise.

Sep 2017

Brilliant, we loved it, Craig and Scott were our crew, very entertaining great finish to a fun packed hen party in London.

Dec 2017

It was thrilling fun. The guide herself was great in engaging and entertaining but, however it was freezing and cold at that time of the season. We were frozen! Not the tour's fault.
Driver made it fun too.

The staff on this rib adventure were absolutely fantastic. They are so welcoming and informative and made the trip very special. Unfortunately I ended up sitting next to a guy who was a professional camera-man and was filming two pop stars who were seated in the rear of the rib. He spoilt my cruise as he was facing behind throughout the whole cruise and might as well have been sitting on my lap. He also had his camera right in the face of the girl sitting behind him which must have been unpleasant for her. The company need to prevent this happening again and should insist that professional film crews hire their own boat and not disturb/annoy the cruise of other paying passengers. The commentary was fantastic and I felt very safe throughout. A great thing to do in London and highly recommended.
