We thoroughly enjoyed our Big Ben at night trip. The leaders were helpful and had lots of interesting insights about the Thames. The river was beautiful at night and although it was quite hard work by the end it was a superb evening.

I did the 4 hour discover London tour with my partner! It was amazing! The two guides were great and the whole experience was great fun. You will get cold during the winter so wear extra clothing and take spare gloves, waterproof ones will better for splashes. Half way through the 4 hour tour we stopped under London Bridge and...

Waterproofs are provided as is the rest of the necessary equipment. The guys there also get you in and out of the water so little risk of you getting wet. The... More

This was a birthday present for Lovely Daddy - and was clearly a popular couples gift. Starting in Kensington I was a little bit of a hick when faced with two chippy geezers who couldn't really be bothered with my shock at the parking prices - we paid £14 for 4 hours and you have to have this in coins....

When on the water the guides not only assist you with your kayaking they also provide some local knowledge that is water-based or viewed from the water.. Where we have a... More

Booked this trip for August for 3 friends but it was cancelled at the last minute, transferred to the October tour. Sadly a friend was injured prior to the trip and they gladly gave a partial refund which was excellent. The email confirmation stated to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time but this was not enough; we arrived... More

This was a birthday present for my husband. The instructions at booking were clear and we were greeted by the v friendly and entertaining Harry on our arrival.

My husband and I had a great time doing the Big Ben and back tour. The guides were great and gave us fun facts about sites along the way. Parts of the journey were a bit tiring which is to be expected but all in all a great day and highly recommended!

Nice evening in Grand union canal. We enjoyed kayaking in urban London (despite the green stuff in some parts of the route..)
