Nice ride. Enjoyed not being crammed onto one of the larger, slower boats. Get to see more in a shorter period of time. Worth it.

Exhilirating, fun despite the bad weather. It quite literally takes your breath away when they "full throttle it". Great commentary throughout and lovely to see the main attractions from the River. Well worth it!

Not cheap but a great way to see London, with an exhilarating James Bond experience thrown in! We've done many trips on the Thames but nothing to compare with this.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

Yes there is a box for securing bags and anything else you don’t want to ride with. A suitcase will fit in the box.
