Super adrenaline rush! - This is the second time we have been on the Thames RIB. This time we took our kids aged 16 and 11. RIB is a real adrenaline rush plus we had choppy water which made it even more hairy raising. The staff were good fun too. The fastest on the Thames and the best. My boys wants to go back soon!

The best fun you can have on water - What a brilliant time my entire family had on the RIB Experience! Easily one of the highlights of our tour. A great way to see a lot of London via the Thames, just at a breakneck speed!

Fast and fun! - Really Fast and fun experience - thoroughly enjoyed it. We went under Tower Bridge, past shard, o2 arena, under the cable cars, greenwich & cutty sark, canary wharf to the Thames barrier. On the beast trip and some sort of recorded commentary about animals being kept and escaping at the start but couldn't really hear it and found the animal noises just irritating but it was very brief and then we sped up and the music started and had a blast!

Thames Rib Experience - Lovely experience. The ladies at the reception(Charlotte, Heidi and Maisy) were all friendly. Charlotte was very helpful when I called her stating I’ll be missing the ride as I was running late. I was eventually able to get on a ride with Joe and Rob and it was so much fun! Despite it being rainy we still had a lovely experience! Don’t hesitate to book this guys, you’ll enjoy it!

Jumpy ride - Great jumpy ride with the beast. Good fun. My second time. Not many splashes as the boat has tall sides for those worried about your make up.
