We had a great time. The queuing up process was handled very well with security questions and safety demo.
Only 12 people on the boat, the guide was very entertaining and very professional pilot who made us have lots of thrills... would do it again tomorrow x fabulous x

What can I say apart from absolutely fab!!!! Our crew were John and Joe and I really didn't expect it to be this much fun..... As soon as we cleared Tower Bridge - dipping, diving, fast turns and the James Bond theme coming out of the speakers.... don't think I have screamed so much since giving birth to my daughter!
I cannot recommend this experience enough and the crew gave a really informative and entertaining commentary that was just right - not intrusive and over the top - just right.

Our trip happened to take place during unpleasant weather. Cold, nasty rain. It's quite the testament to this tour that even in bad conditions, we still had a great time. The tour guide was funny, the captain skilled. There is a moment in particular that stands out. When the boat crosses the bridge and the captain can accelerate, the James Bond theme is played. I felt like a kid in that moment. If we visit London again, I would book this trip again.

Annual girls weekend to London. We did Tower Bridge fab, Comedy About A Bank Robbery at Criterion Theatre very well done and hilarious and the RIB High Speed Cruise was a birthday treat for my twin daughters. RIB booking very easy, emailed to confirm the week before our arrival. Richard's commentary was amusing and very knowledgeable Joe's driving skills were superb if a bit hair-raising at times!. Thoroughly enjoyed and thoroughly recommend.

Really a 'must do' experience. Such fun and a superb birthday treat for one of our party - we were 6 in total. Really comprehensive commentary - can definitely recommend this as a novel way to see London from a different perspective. The skill of the pilot was brilliant and breathtaking from time to time!!

Hold on tight and be prepared for a thrilling ride. It was like taking a roller coaster ride on the Thames.

Fantastic fun, highly recommend. Great way to see the sights from a different perspective, and some high speed boat fun thrown in! Fun commentary along the way and expert driving. My Dad 70, my son 9 and I all loved it.
