"Don't miss this experience"

This was the best moment for our 3 children (9, 13 & 15 years) during our visit of London. This is a good way to see some monuments of London & to have fun. Speed, emotions & smile guaranteed!


"Rocketing along the Thames"

Really enjoyable trip. My 10 yr old son loved it, as did both the adults especially the fast bit. Guide was the best we've seen in London!.


"Thrilling ride"

Wow hold onto your seat!!!! Amazing experience, what else could you wish for? Fantastic views of the city, factual information, and a James Bond-type ride. A definite must even if you have lived in the city all your life like we have.
