    What to Expect
    Depart from an embarking point near Embankment, central London, and greet your knowledgeable guide on the pier. Listen to a brief orientation talk and don your life jacket before climbing aboard your impressive RIB speedboat, capable of reaching 50 knots per hour.

    Select between two adrenaline-fueled tours depending on which sights you’re most interested in seeing; experience a 50-minute Canary Wharf tour for unrivaled views of the Tower of London, HMS Belfast, the Houses of Parliament and the Execution Dock. 

    Alternatively, opt for the 80-minute Thames Barrier Experience to enjoy sweeping vistas of Greenwich and the colossal Thames Barrier. Cruise at high speed around the O2 Arena, the filming location of James Bond film The World is Not Enough, while listening to classic hits on the state-of-the-art speaker system.

    Throughout your adventurous excursion, you'll hear commentary and music on a modern sound system and feel the adrenaline rush of high velocity speeds. After your rip-roaring ride on the Thames River, you'll return to your original departure point and bid your guide farewell.

    My husband got me the RIB experience for my 70th birthday. It was the best ever present. The whole thing was ace and Ed gave a very witty commentary . It culminated with them playing "Happy Birthday" to me. I just want to go again.
