Awesome John Odell, 08/09/2020 (Family with young children)My five year old son enjoys watching the red Thames Rocket speedboats zoom past our home each day, so he was *SO* excited when I told him we would be going on the speedboat ourselves. The "Captain Kidd" tour has a commentary aimed at a family audience, and had some fun facts and interesting anecdotes... but the main attraction for us was the high speed segment from Wapping to just beyond Canary Wharf and back. It was the highlight of our summer. Definitely recommended.
Best Day Ever! Archie aged 8. Swiggs Famiky, 27/10/2018 (Family with young children)Two day visit to London with excited 7 & 8 year old boys. We had an action packed itinerary but without doubt, the main talking point on the train home was the Thames Rockets experience!
Although Tom and Andy were good, it was the exhilarating speed once past the police station that made the boys day! We also got to see many famous London landmarks which meant we could tick even more things off of the things to see in London. Thank you Thames Rockets.
Great fun BT, 09/07/2018 (Family with young children)Delighted to have booked this trip. Great fun, interesting stories about the history of the river and lots of high speed twist and turns beyond tower bridge. Suitable for all ages - my 12 year old son loved sitting next to the edge of the boat. Thank you to the team at Thames Rockets.
