The RIB is the closest you will get to experiencing a white knuckle rollercoaster ride on the River Thames! From the moment you arrive at central London’s Embankment pier the entertainment doesn’t stop, as your young and friendly skipper and his team welcome you aboard the boat. As you travel at a leisurely pace towards Canary Wharf, your skipper will give you a comical alternative tour guide to London’s famous landmarks. But before you know it, the Bond theme is playing over the sound system and you are powering up to 45 knots, faster than any other boat on the river. As you near Docklands, the river widens and allows your skipper to really start showing off, spinning the boat round as you hang on for dear life. An exhilarating ride which is not for the faint of heart!

Super speedy trip up to the Thames barrier, beautiful day, great to be speeding along the river, some great twists and turns but felt very safe throughout. Stan had the best jokes too!

Good fun on the river

Location: Age: 45-54 Bought For Sister Occasion: Christmas
As a Christmas present we waited a few months to book but when we did there were plenty of options. The venue is is a key London location so very easy to get to. The guide on the Rib was a great guide/skipper - knowledgeable and funny about the locations along the river and when the engines were fully opened up it was great fun.

Location: Age: 45-54 Bought For Relative Occasion: Birthday
This was bought for my son as a birthday present so all the family decided to go. We had a brilliant time on the Thames RIB experience. Staff really friendly and helpful - great fun. Only downside is that we couldn't redeem the vouchers/arrange the booking over the weekend but only a small inconvenience.
