In a momentary flash of inspiration we decided to employee stand up comedians and actors to guide our speedy speedboat tours. Yes that’s right... stand up comedians provide a constant supply of high-brow wit and sparkling banter to ensure you thoroughly enjoy your speedboat RIB experience.
They are also closet history boffins and have endless historical facts, figures and stories on everything important that's ever happened and anyone influential who's ever lived in London.
But do not fear, our stand ups undergo rigorous vessel and safety training and complete regular emergency drill procedures. They are the ‘best of the best’ in their very particular niche category of ‘Stand-Up Comedian, High Speed, Thames Safety Crew and Guides’ - Just one more factor that makes us so unique.
Meet a few of our most regular guides below ...
Please feel free to e-mail them and thank them for your trip or ridicule them for incorrect dating of a vital event. They really do appreciate any feed-back, it makes their day and beats heckling!
Use this page to keep up to date with other projects they are involved in and where else you can see (or avoid) them!!
