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!

Decided to give this experience a try after recommendations from other parents. Brilliant, great fun, wonderful staff. My only regret was I didn't pay for the longer trip. Will definitely go again.

“Fantabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

50 minutes of superb great fun! Our original tour was cancelled due to some safety issue and was offered 15% off to rebook and we did. Informative talk with different view of London from the river mix with adrenaline thrilling fun. My boys loved this ride so much that they had to book the other tour across the river.

“Fantastic Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Did this with some family members, ranging 7 to 50~ and EVERYONE thoroughly enjoyed it. We did the 75 minute experience down past the Thames Barrier. The skipper and the guide were great fun, and the guides commentary was excellent. When skipper Dave let rip he really went crazy and it was FANTASTIC.
One negative point is that , it's not very obvious where to board the boat from street level, they really need to put up a sign.
Well worth every penny.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

We have been meaning to do this for ages and I wish we'd done it sooner! It was great fun. An enjoyable commentary from Dean and an even more enjoyable experience when they could finally get the speed up after Tower Bridge. You don't get wet but it is windy! A brilliant experience, my whole family loved it!
