“Such fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

What's blustery, bouncy and the best way to spend an hour on the Thames? An RIB Voyage, of course! I had a crazily good time with RIB Voyages last weekend. The trip started very pleasantly. A gentle sail along the Thames past some of London's grandest and most famous landmarks. And then it went wild! As soon as the boat had passed the speed restriction area, it picked up the pace big time. It was great to feel the wind rushing against our faces. And it gave you this great sense of freedom and adventure, which is so precious living here in London. While I'd say the trip isn't for the faint-hearted, it's a fantastic way to blow away the cobwebs and all on board had a great time, from mums and dads to kids. A real pleasure. The staff were friendly and efficient and they approached their work with warmth and enthusiasm. I would deffo recommend! Thanks, Alex.
