What to Expect
Depending on the start time selected at checkout, make your way to the London Eye Pier to board your RIB. Following a safety briefing, set sail on the Thames River and pass the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, Shakespeare's Globe, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. Once you pass Tower Bridge, speed restrictions are lifted and your skipper is free to accelerate to speeds of 35 miles per hour (55 kilometers per hour). Feel exhilarated as your skipper performs maneuvers such as hairpin bends and figure eights. During slower periods of sailing, listen to commentary that reveals the history of London’s riverside. The tour concludes back at your original departure point.
