My husband and I got this voucher for a gift, and it was well worth it! We had the best time even though it was extremely cold (that's what we get for doing it in February) The guide Rory and the driver was friendly and welcoming and we had such a lovely morning. Highly recommend! Thank you!

Little Mike and Scotty were great. Learn't a lot as we cruised along the Thames. Little Mike was funny and informative he really knew his stuff. A great way to see some of the sights. Exhilarating as we picked up speed. Brilliant Experience would recommend and go again.

They made it even more special by stopping under Tower Bridge to... More

The whole experience was very friendly and amusing. Ben or chris can't remember was very entertaining and funny and cool. However would not say it's worth 105 pound. We had a 2for 1 voucher .

Little Mike and Salty were very welcoming and really made the trip. Their witty banter was very entertaining. My kids (11 and 14) thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We would definitely do this again. Great value for money.
