I booked this boat trip for a work party & had a fab time. The boat was equipped with everything we needed; such as ice buckets, clean loo, music connection etc. The staff were really fun, friendly, but were still very professional.

We hired the boat for a friends 30th birthday. It was great fun, it is BYO, there are speakers to play your own music and the boat is decorated nicely. The staff are fun too!

We had a great 2-hour trip to celebrate my parents' 40th wedding anniversary... despite the unfortunate rain, the boat was cosy, and our boat crew were super friendly and informative. Really great company to deal with all round. Thank you!

You get to see a different side of London on a beautifully decorated, comfortable barge. Captain and crew super accommodating and helpful, loved every minute and the rest of the group did too.

Hello, yes we can take children on the boats provided they are accompanied by adults. The route goes through canal locks and a tunnel so there is plenty to see. Thank you
