We were delighted to be awarded Trip Advisor's prestigious €˜Certificate of Excellence' award last night. An award ceremony was held in Regent Street's Aqua Nueva restaurant, where a number of hotels and attractions received commendations on their service. The awards were presented by Trip Advisor's celebrity mascot, Olly the Owl... and we were very excited to meet him.

Winners are chosen from those who consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on the site. Competition for the award is tough, as to qualify a business needs to maintain an overall rating of four stars or higher. Thankfully recent guests of London RIB Voyages have been more than generous with their kind words, leaving a host of lovely reviews of their experiences. Here are a few recent reviews for our trips: Mark H €œHost Amy was very, very amusing. It was perhaps the best touristy thing I've done in London.
