My husband, friend and I jointed the Thames Rockets last Friday 25th Nov, lovely crisp morning for a rib up the river. We all had a tremendous time from start to finish. Steve was fabulous with his witty humour and knowledge of the sites and Ian gave us the ride of our life at high speed. Very professionally run. Steve... More

Had a great trip at the weekend with Thames Rockets. Had a fun knowledgable guide (Taffy I think). Lived in London all my life but hadn't heard the facts he shared before. The fast part was exhilaring and London looks beautiful from the river. Thoroughly recommend this as a treat for yourself or a gift for someone else

As birthday gifts go for a 6 year old, this is the bomb! He is still talking about it and reliving the speed, the bumps and the sites. Excellent staff and thanks for turning back for us as we'd arrived late. Enjoyed the comical and banter nature in which the sites along the Thames are pointed out, laughed all the... More

It was well organised and the people were all very friendly and professional. Fast boat and good music. We all would have loved more facts about the landmarks from the guide. Could have spent all the 'cruising' time there and back with interesting 'stuff'.
