Our award winning comedian tour guides ensure sparkling highbrow banter as you 'pull G' past the House of Parliament before holding on tight for an exhilarating trip to Canary Wharf and back mission accomplished on this exhilarating Thames speedboat trip. This experience departs hourly from the world famous "London Eye" Pier, 7 days a week, throughout the year.

Thoroughly enjoyed James' wit on our boat as guide together with expert driving of Tom as our 'skipper'. Brilliant ride & information about London landmarks to be seen from the river and then once past Tower Bridge & the speed restrictions we were off......speeding through the water! Fantastic. Would recommend.

Had a wonderful trip on the Thames with guide Amy and driver Dave. Was great to see London from the river rather than the bank. Entertaining commentary and awesome boat ride. Loved the background music to complete the experience:) Pity it was over so soon.

Wasn't sure what to expect as this had been booked as a work trip. It was one of the hottest days and I couldn't think of a better way to spend an hour in the sun. Craig looked after us on the boat and made it a fabulous experience. We were screaming to go faster and it is totally exhilarating!! We even had the Bond song playing at one stage!! Fantastic way to see the sites. Great thing to do with friends, family or for a work event. Highly recommend everyone does this.

What a thing to do during the glorious sunshine. I was booked on through my company but will definitely be doing it again with friends and family. We started off with a relaxing cruise down the Thames with our excellent guide James aka 'brummy boy' cracking jokes and enlightening us with his pearls of wisdom about london. Then came the speed, which was AMAZING! We laughed from start to finish. Thank you London Rib Voyages!

We took two boats out on private charter yesterday as part of a team building day. When you do a private boat you can skip the tour and just head down to open water past Tower Bridge and rip it up! It was so much fun. Craig, our guide, was a top bloke and we all had a blast. And on top of that, the weather was awesome. My only complaint was that it was just all over too quickly - next time we'll do the full 90 minute trip. Can't recommend it enough.
