"An absolute blast !!!"

I took my 8 year old son for a day out in London and decided to pre-book this experience on the off chance....and I’m so glad I did !! My son enjoyed it from start to finish, as did I. Can’t say enough about our tour guide Dave (Darren to his friends ) and our driver Ian, they made it what us was, an absolutely fantastic experience and one we will do again I’m sure. Can’t recommend this trip enough, thx guys

"Do not miss !!"

Fabulous trip-do not miss this !! Been many times to London but never tried this and it's highly recommended. Amusing tour guide it's just the right note and when speed and music kick in its fantastic fun. Was dusk when we started definitely best time of day as Thames is well lit and all seems extra exciting. My 11 yr old niece loved it too !!

"Exhilarating fun and great value"

From the moment we arrived and throughout the trip we were very well looked after by our guide Dave and pilot Ian. Great and funny commentary by Dave and he even made the safety briefing entertaining too. The sensation of the wind whipping your face as you zip across the water leaves you feeling exhilarated and refreshed Catchy music soundtrack too, with the inclusion of a “Titanic” track being rather amusing too. Highly recommended for families.
