Owner description: The original, fastest and most exhilarating sightseeing speedboats on the river Thames today. Thames Rockets set sail in 2006 offering these unique sightseeing adventures to the public for the very first time. More experience, more style and more returning passengers year on year. Slice through London at 30 knots as the Thames is eaten up by 630hp of engine power. Zoom under the capital’s famous bridges and marvel at London’s landmarks from your exclusive vantage point. Our award winning comedian tour guides ensure sparkling highbrow banter as you 'pull G' past the House of Parliament before holding on tight for an exhilarating trip to Canary Wharf and back mission accomplished on this exhilarating Thames speedboat trip. This experience departs hourly from the world famous "London Eye" Pier, 7 days a week, throughout the year. Perfect for birthday celebrations, unique dates, reunions, family outings, groups of friends, staff gatherings, hen & stag do's, corporate entertaining, team building, engagements, school outings and more.Suitable for all ages 1 to 101! Toddlers and grandma alike willl love this speedy experience. This ultimate sightseeing adventure is great whatever the weather, wet weather kit provided for all ages and sizes."Five star" rating from London's Timeout Magazine, awarded a "Gold Tourist Attraction" in first year of sailing.

We took my son and 6 of his friends for a birthday treat; really great from booking to the end of the experience. The crew recognised the boys would prefer to go really fast rather than do any site seeing ( although this was offered ) and this is what they did! They all loved it and afterwards said it was awesome.

Really helpful with booking and it was a perfect thing to do for an 11 year old (and a couple a little more wrinkly!)

we visited London today intending to go on a Slow cruise up the Thames. We were invited to try the rib tour instead by a cheerful guy and are really pleased we did. The tour guide was knowledgeable and fun, then we had the high speed ride which took our breath away and left us grinning from ear to ear.

My wife has always wanted to go on a "speed boat" on the Thames so I booked up for last Saturday. Captain Paul and guide first mate Mike were great and entertaining. We had a fantastic time and will go again.

My boyfriend bought me a trip as a birthday present and I was really excited about seeing london from the river and it didn't let me down. Great comedy guides point out all the major points of interest and give you the funny and the historical facts which makes it far easier to digest than your normal tours, I actually came away remembering things which never usually hapens. So nice to be able to see so much in a short space of time. Felt like i had done the tourist thing also got some sun and river air so i could sit comfortably in a cafe for the rest of the afternoon and not feel lazy. I recommend it. Well worth the money.
