Owner description: Thames RIB Experience has the fastest and most powerful fleet of high-speed London RIBs on the River Thames; our incredible vessels are fitted with either 740 horse power Yanmar engines or 2 x twin turbo Yamaha engines, for an extreme London sightseeing experience like none other! All of our adrenaline fuelled signature trips involve fascinating guided commentary on the many marvellous modern and historical sights London has to offer, as well as thrilling bouts of high-speed aimed at getting that heart rate pumping for at least the daily recommended 20 minutes! In response to popular demand, we blast the beloved James Bond theme music guaranteed to turn heads as you tear up the Thames in our eye-catching London Speed Boats; all of which designed with maximum fun, safety and comfort in mind. All high-speed Thames RIB boats are fitted with powerful PA stereo systems to ensure any observations from the guide can be heard clearly whilst proceeding at speed, and we provide warm waterproof clothing to ensure you’ll remain high and dry, whatever the weather. So don’t delay - book yourself the RIB-roaring ride of a lifetime today. Fast and furious fun for all, whatever the occasion!

“Birthday Rib Ride!!”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

Excellent rib ride up the Thames in the sunshine. Skipper and first mate great - lots of interesting facts about London. What's not to like about whizzing up the Thames to a James Bond Theme Tune !! Thanks all.

“What a thrill”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Knowledgeable tour with London history with a good speed thrill from Wapping to Canary wharf, the tube journey afterwards seemed very tame!
I laugh lots and thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

“What A Birthday Treat”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

My Daughter bought me this Adrenalin Experience for my 70th Birthday and I thought that she was seeing me off early so she could get her hands on the inheritance. Did she do me a terrific favour, it was brilliant from start to finish Mark & Charlie certainly knew there stuff and I felt in really safe hands. I would go back and do it all again tomorrow, their is nothing to compare with it. Still back to yhe pipe and slippers again

“Great Fun!”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 via mobile

Charlie and Mike take you on a tourist visit past Big Ben, Parliament, The London Eye, St Pauls, The Tower of London etc, with an entertaining commentary - then accelerate to take you on a proper thrill ride down to Docklands and back. Really enjoyed it and it's a great, different way to see the greatest city in the world!
