I would highly recommend a trip on the Thames with Thames Rockets. Little Mike was our tour guide and he was very informative and funny too. My family especially enjoyed the high speed ride with the music blasting out.

What a great experience where you get a speed boat ride as you go out after London Bridge and then some great views, information and unusual facts about some of the key sights on the return journey.

The ride was thrilling but not too scary when at full speed but it was also good fun when we were just cruising to the high speed zone. The guide 'little' Mike was a star - great fun and informative. Its a must do attraction.
