This rocket ship provided a fast and furious river ride and with a class act host. Probably our highlight of London. Had an awesome time on the speed boat with Bill on the mic and Rich behind the wheel. Highly recommended!

The guide/man fellow was called Dave and the skipper was Rich. Dave was extremely friendly and welcoming,informative,funny,made us relaxed and really made the boat trip worth while.
A brilliant experience made even better having this chap on board. Would definitely recommend it to others and do it again

Super fun way to do a little exploration of the Thames, especially if kids are traveling. The kids thanked us for taking us on something a little more current than most of the other exploring we did. Geoff and Doug did a really great job of keeping us entertained and safe. Also, we hit crazy traffic trying to get to the pier and were a little late running all the way across the bridge to get there and they waited for us - I thought that was very nice.

There aren't enough words to express how amazing this ride was. It wasn't only fun and exciting, our guide Geoff was the absolute BEST. He was thrilled to have four passengers from so far away Mexico. He was charming and funny, it was an absolute blast!

After the ride, my family and I headed to The Globe. We went on a guided tour there and actually took our sweet time. On our way out, we chuckled as we crossed the Millennium Bridge, which Geoff hilariously mentions on the RIB cruise. We stopped in the middle of it for a moment to take pictures and spotted a red RIB coming our way. We said to each other: Wonder if that's Geoff ... Lo and behold, it was him! We waved in hopes that he would see us, and he did! He waved back with a surprised look on his face, the RIB sped under the bridge and emerged on the other side, Geoff waving us goodbye and blowing us kisses as they drove off.

Thanks Geoff and Nick! Next trip to London, we're definitely taking this ride again and hoping we get you guys as our guide and captain once more.
