Published by Thames Rockets 2168 days ago

What makes a good tour guide? Facts? Figures? Long dreary monologues? We don't think so. In fact we are firm believers that the secret to a good guide is all in the sense of humour. We had an epiphany one day and decided the very best tour guides would in fact be stand up comedians. So that's exactly who we chose to talk you through your London RIB Voyages experience. Our comedians will keep you well and truly entertained with their constant supply of high-brow wit and humorous anecdotes to ensure you thoroughly enjoy your trip with us. London RIB Voyages guides include:  Mike Tomlinson aka €œMigz€ Fresh and funky stand up comedian, hairy young at heart cheeky chappy and all round general stunt man.  Often seen on the comedy circuit performing at Jongleurs, Comedy Club and Up the creek wearing a blouse and drinking a Pina Colada through a straw.  Mad about fancy dress.

Actor by trade, show off by nature.  Loves to be centre of attention, stories sometimes questionable but enjoyment never is.  Pushes his luck, likes to show passengers sites other tour guides leave out.
