Description
The super-powered Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIB's) are specially designed to operate on the River Thames. One minute you're cruising gently under Tower Bridge, the next you are racing out towards the Thames Barrier at a rate of 50 knots on a speed boat.

This fantastic interactive guided tour takes in London's top sights and gives fascinating insight into their history. With a modern sound system on board you'll be sure to hear your guide's entertaining and informative commentary even at high speed.

Choose between the 50-minute Canary Wharf Experience and the 80-minute Thames Barrier Experience. Take the Canary Wharf Experience to see the famous sights of the Houses of Parliament, HMS Belfast, Tower of London and Execution Dock.

Or opt for the Thames Barrier Experience and in addition enjoy beautiful views of Greenwich and the incredible Thames Barrier, the world's second largest movable flood barrier. You will also be sped around the O2 Arena, filming location of the James Bond movie The World is Not Enough whilst listening to the movie soundtrack.

Group sizes are restricted to 12 passengers on both tours, ensuring a personal and fun experience. London's number one action activity is not to be missed!

Brilliant

What can I say apart from absolutely fab!!!! Our crew were John and Joe and I really didn't expect it to be this much fun..... As soon as we cleared Tower Bridge - dipping, diving, fast turns and the James Bond theme coming out of the speakers.... don't think I have screamed so much since giving birth to my daughter!
I cannot recommend this experience enough and the crew gave a really informative and entertaining commentary that was just right - not intrusive and over the top - just right.

Our trip happened to take place during unpleasant weather. Cold, nasty rain. It's quite the testament to this tour that even in bad conditions, we still had a great time. The tour guide was funny, the captain skilled. There is a moment in particular that stands out. When the boat crosses the bridge and the captain can accelerate, the James Bond theme is played. I felt like a kid in that moment. If we visit London again, I would book this trip again.

Annual girls weekend to London. We did Tower Bridge fab, Comedy About A Bank Robbery at Criterion Theatre very well done and hilarious and the RIB High Speed Cruise was a birthday treat for my twin daughters. RIB booking very easy, emailed to confirm the week before our arrival. Richard's commentary was amusing and very knowledgeable Joe's driving skills were superb if a bit hair-raising at times!. Thoroughly enjoyed and thoroughly recommend.

Really a 'must do' experience. Such fun and a superb birthday treat for one of our party - we were 6 in total. Really comprehensive commentary - can definitely recommend this as a novel way to see London from a different perspective. The skill of the pilot was brilliant and breathtaking from time to time!!

Hold on tight and be prepared for a thrilling ride. It was like taking a roller coaster ride on the Thames.

Fantastic fun, highly recommend. Great way to see the sights from a different perspective, and some high speed boat fun thrown in! Fun commentary along the way and expert driving. My Dad 70, my son 9 and I all loved it.

Sweet Sweet Sweet, I really loved this tour! How many times will you get to ride on a high speed boat on the Thames River in your lifetime. I got some great video and pictures while on the tour and it was a lot of fun!
