  • If there’s one tourist attraction to do in the capital, this is the one! Definitely top of my recommendations to my friends. Yes it’s not my first time and definitely not the last! Don’t let the weather put you off. Even when it’s dull and grey it’s the best way to see the sights! The staff are so welcoming and friendly and have all Covid secure precautions in place! You start with a gentle ride up the Thames past tourist attractions where your able take some photos and find out about the history of our River, buildings and Bridges. Everyone sings along to the music playing! Once past Tower Bridge it’s full throttle to give you the adrenaline buzz. I recommend taking the full trip up past Greenwich to the Thames Barriers! You won’t be disappointed! Let’s just mention the mulled wine at this time of the year just gives it that added touch and you get to keep the cup as a souvenir! 😀
  • Absolutely incredible experience on the Jingle Bell Blast 50 minute speed boat tour. Bill & Andy were amazing at entertaining and ensuring the best ride around Canary Wharf. Sights were beautiful, Bill was the best tour guide and taught us so many amazing facts about London that we didn't know! 10/10 recommend to anyone looking for something different and exciting to do whilst visiting London!
