Overview
If you’re looking for an exhilarating way to see London’s riverside sights, then opt for a high-speed RIB cruise on the Thames River. In a rigid inflatable boat, soar past the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, and Shakespeare’s Globe while listening to a high-octane soundtrack. Once you reach Tower Bridge, your skipper accelerates to speeds of 35 miles-per-hour (55 km-per-hour) and performs sharp turns guaranteed to increase adrenaline levels. Ideal for thrill seekers, this experience also offers multiple departure times.
What to Expect

Depending on the start time selected at checkout, make your way to a central London location to board your RIB. Following a safety briefing, set sail on the Thames River and pass the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, Shakespeare's Globe, and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Once you pass Tower Bridge, speed restrictions are lifted and your skipper is free to accelerate to speeds of 35 miles-per-hour (55 kilometer-per-hour). Feel exhilarated as your skipper performs maneuvers such as hairpin bends and figure eights.

During slower periods of sailing, listen to commentary that reveals the history of London’s riverside. The tour concludes back at your original departure point.

Hi. It goes from Millenium Pier next to London Eye. So Waterloo nearedt, or Westminster and walk over the bridge. Their website is a good source of info. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.
