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!

I purchased this for my sons 9th birthday and well he absolutely had the time of his life (me too)! The whole time the boat was at full speed the only words that came out of my usually chatty boy was 'awesome'! We had terrible weather but this didn't spoil it at all and if anything added to the fun. Thoroughly recommend for kids and adults!

it was very good but not for ' the faint hearted', one minute you are being told interesting facts about london buildings and the next you are going down 'the thames' like a bat out of hell.

,It was an excellent trip and the information was interesting too.

no need to wait for fine weather because you will get soaked whether it is pouring with rain or not and the buildings are so closle that the cloud will not obscure the view.

although waterproof clothing is provided wrap up warm unless it is a real heat wave and bring gloves as it will be chilly on board.

What better way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon than on a RIB speeding along the Thames. We loved this, the commentary was great, very humorous, we would definitely do it again. I was slightly worried when we received a phone call changing the time of our trip that things were going to go wrong as some of the reviews mention unhelpful customer service, however their new suggested time did not suit us but they accommodated us and upgraded our tour. Thanks for a great trip.

I did the Canary Wharf trip on my own. Had the best time. It was well run and so much fun for all ages. You don't get we or cold as they provide weather proof jackets. I'd do it again!
