Owner description: Thames RIB Experience has the fastest and most powerful fleet of high-speed London RIBs on the River Thames; our incredible vessels are fitted with either 740 horse power Yanmar engines or 2 x twin turbo Yamaha engines, for an extreme London sightseeing experience like none other! All of our adrenaline fuelled signature trips involve fascinating guided commentary on the many marvellous modern and historical sights London has to offer, as well as thrilling bouts of high-speed aimed at getting that heart rate pumping for at least the daily recommended 20 minutes! In response to popular demand, we blast the beloved James Bond theme music guaranteed to turn heads as you tear up the Thames in our eye-catching London Speed Boats; all of which designed with maximum fun, safety and comfort in mind. All high-speed Thames RIB boats are fitted with powerful PA stereo systems to ensure any observations from the guide can be heard clearly whilst proceeding at speed, and we provide warm waterproof clothing to ensure you’ll remain high and dry, whatever the weather. So don’t delay - book yourself the RIB-roaring ride of a lifetime today. Fast and furious fun for all, whatever the occasion!

Did this with my nephews and niece last week. They said that their faces were aching from smiling so much afterwards!
Perhaps one small criticism - I think then need a new microphone for the commentary, because it was quite garbled, and needed close attention. But the content - once you had worked out what it was - was educational, entertaining and informative!

We chartered the whole boat (12 people). It was such a fantastic experience. Seeing London on a warm sunny evening from the Thames cannot be beaten!! The crew could not have been more helpful and the bit after Tower Bridge was a real thrill.
Loved it and would not hesitate to recommend it to everyone.

This was a birthday treat for me and and my 17 year old son and 9 year old daughter. We really enjoyed the tour which started off going down to the House's of Parliament then back along to Tower Bridge where the boat then really opened up. We had such a great time and had not laughed so much for ages, it was all the more enjoyable with the James Bond music playing. I would highly recommend this trip and am sure it is great whatever the weather!

Travelled with my 11 year old daughter on the trip to the Thames Barrier and it was fantastic. We both loved it and came off with big grins. The fast bits were longer than I thought they would be and the music added a great fun feeling. The staff were all great, the commentary was funny, informative and pitched very well too. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone and plan to visit again when I am next in London. Thanks to everyone at Thames Rib Experience.
