London Rib Voyages

  • ....well I am 51! I booked the trip because it was the only thing I could find to do in London at very short notice on Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. I had left it too late to allow anything else to arrive by post, so booked the RIB as the vouchers arrived via email in less than 2 hours! We arrived on a beautiful sunny afternoon, were offered (lovely, good quality, waterproof, clean)coats in case we got chilly, which was a nice touch, and was duly accepted. As we set off, the lovely funny guide Tom, asked if it was anyone's birthday and my daughter put up her hand. Tom said we would all sing happy birthday to her under Tower Bridge - it was quite a few minutes away, but he remembered, and we did. He then took a photo of us, and said he would put it on Twitter (I forgot to check that until 4 hours later, but true to his word again, he did it!). My daughter was so delighted with the personal touch. Tom's guide of London up the Thames (or would it be down?!) was witty, informative, and sounded as fresh as the first time he'd done it. We started off very gently, just cruising, but as soon as the speed limit allowed, we were off! I knew it would be rather challenging for me, as I'm a wimp, but the kids love all the white knuckle rides. The skipper did all kinds of fancy turns at speed, and I don't mind admitting I was frightened to death and hanging on for dear life. At one point he headed for the river bank, and I thought 'Oh s**t', then turned sharply and spun round a couple of times. Real skill. The whole experience was fantastic, the staff great, the ride truly exhilarating. As I said I'm a wimp,, and I don't like water either - but would I recommend it, and do it again the next time I'm in London? Most definitely. Well deserved top spot on Trip Advisor. You will not be disappointed!

  • This was a fantastic experience and so different from anything that we have done in London before - and we are frequent visitors. We were greeted with smiles and put at ease, sorted out with clean, great quality wet weather gear and didn't have long to wait until our smiley guide Craig and skipper Dave had got us going on our trip. I was probably the most nervous of the family before we went out but within minutes Craig had us laughing and it wasn't long before Dave took over, revved the engines and showed us the Thames as we have never seen it before. The brilliant soundtrack definitely matches the mood and speed!! Thanks Craig for the funny and original commentary - we have done other more traditional boat trips but this really left us with something to remember - from our 7 and 10year olds to us. Behind the scenes all the organisation was handled with no fuss, even when we had to change our original booking they couldn't do enough to help. All my friends and family will definitely be hearing about this trip as it was great value and I would definitely buy this as a present for someone - a fabulous, original trip with smiles all round.
