River Thames, London
Munya from Purchasing, June 2019
What an exhilarating experience! We arrived at the London Eye pier and were welcomed by one of the friendly members of staff. Whilst we waited for the speedboat to be ready, we were given our life jackets followed by a safety briefing from our tour guide, Craig. He was a great guide who made us all laugh whilst educating us about the beautiful landmarks in London including London Bridge, the Globe Theatre, Houses of Parliament and many others. Even though the experience was exhilarating, Nick the Skipper made us all feel safe whilst we were on the boat. Overall the experience was great and I would recommend this for anyone and everyone, especially those that love feeling of adrenaline oozing through their veins!
Bring a hairbrush and if you have a Go-Pro camera bring it with you as well!
