Your questions answered...

How do small children sit on board?
Children will be able to sit normally in perfect safety beside their (responsible) adult. They can sit on your lap if you like or next to you on their seat. Straps or safety beats are not required for this experience.

Will children find the guiding boring?
Our guides are all professional performers. They adapt their guiding to suit whoever is aboard. They have been handpicked to ensure our customers young and old get maximum enjoyment from our trips.  Here’s what the press say about our children’s voyages:

"I went on the London RIB Voyage on the 6th August with my wife and two boys (aged 6 and 10) it was the highlight of our trip to London"  Jeff Lowe. Jan 2012

‘Kids are not usually keen on sightseeing, they’ll no doubt change tune if you offer them a London RIB Voyage’

Do you have children’s life jackets?
We have baby life jackets, toddlers, small children’s, children’s and teenagers. We have life jackets for all sizes and weights. All our life jackets are required by license to meet commercial safety standards and are serviced on a reguar basis.

Are your Thames boat trips safe?
We operate under strict licensing from the Maritime Coastguard Agency, The Port of London and our own internal Domestic Safety Management Code.  All our voyages follow a passage plan and have been appropriately risk assessed. You couldn't be in safer hands on the Thames.  Our management team have vast knowledge and most importantly experience in the health and safety of customers in a commercial industry.  Your safety on our Thames river tours is our priority, followed closely by your complete enjoyment.

Is it easy for less mobile customers to board?
Yes it is easy for less mobile customers to travel with us and we aims to include everyone.
London RIB Voyages vessels have been designed to make access as straight forward as possible. Each vessel has a boarding platform at the bow which is the same height as the London Eye pier. There is also a boarding handrail to provide support if required. The entire boarding area is covered in ‘non-slip’ surfacing.

Buggies and pushchairs are permitted onto the London RIB Voyages where space is availabe, please note these will need to be collapsed. If space is not available on the vessel, these can be left behind with our Boarding Manager, please remove all valuables.

Do you have baby changing facilities?
First class w.c (including disabled) and changing facilities are available in The London Eye (County Hall) for London RIB Voyages customers.

Many thanks for the great fun yesterday. If you want anyone to help sell your voyages - call me! I would like to say all the family enjoyed it but little Lily was heard to say "Oh please make them go slower" whilst my grandaughter was shouting "Faster, faster!"  The youngest was my grandson Ben who is just 4, I am the oldest at 66 and supposed to be taking it nice and easy with my bus pass - sod that!  Yet again thanks for a super timeVicky Smith, July 2010.
