Loads of sights seen from the boat. Friendly staff with excellent customer service. Bit hard to find the meeting point - walked past it at first, but the staff telephoned me and gave me directions - brilliant! The gentlemen who gave the commentary was really funny with his terrible jokes. He had some very interesting facts about the sights too. Loved the music that accompanied the high speed section of the trip. Altogether - well worth the money. Would highly recommend this to experience!! Thank you so much

Going into Bond below the description, I was expecting more along those lines. But the ride didn't even go to the MI 6 building. A song was played and that was it, that was disappointing. The speaker was very difficult to understand due to the sound quality, but the short speedboat ride was great, could have been longer.

Cliché to the power of 10, but to the James Bond intro racing along the Thames at high speed and steep curves - what can I say, it's great. Recommendation to the operators: Skip the sightseeing part - slower and larger boats can do this better - but more high speed
