Three of us booked a midweek kayak tour from Greenwich to Battersea with Harry and Chris as our excellent guides. The kayaks are doubles so a booking for 3 is not ideal but Chris partnered my husband. Harry provided lots of information, kept us safe...More

We had a great kayaking trip from Battersea to Greenwich. This was definitely a highlight of our 3rd trip to London.The wet weather gear was very helpful, as was advice to bring a change of clothes. Highly recommended.

I’ve been to London countless times but seeing it from the river was like nothing else. The guides were full of knowledge at every turn and made the day a lot of fun. Definitely recommend.

In summary, I found them thoroughly unprofessional, unorganised and I am happy that I did not go kayaking with them. We were organising a company day out and booked 2 weeks before the actual day out. Less than 2 working days before the actual day...More

We went on this trip with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. What a great idea! We left from Battersea and went downstream with the tide to Greenwich which, we were told, is 11 miles. The trip starts with a safety briefing and...More

It was amazing to be on the Thames in a small boat paddling right through the heart of London. The water was choppy at times which made it all the more exciting but the two instructors,Harry and Phil, ensured that we were safe at all...More

Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the
very concept of global time was established at Royal
Observatory, just one of several buildings of
architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole
of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park
and a number of related buildings (and one world
famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World

Instructors are in separate kayaks. I shared one with someone I met for the first time that day. Others were friends who shared the same kayak.
