London RIB Voyages: High-Speed Boat Trip on the River Thames http://blog.visitlondon.com/2011/06/london-rib-voyages-high-speed-boat-trip-on-the-river-thames/ http://blog.visitlondon.com/2011/06/london-rib-voyages-high-speed-boat-trip-on-the-river-thames/#comments Mon, 20 Jun 2011 14:54:47 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=21704

Following in Bon Jovi’s footsteps, London visitor J Jackley took a high-speed boat tour along the river Thames. Here’s his description of the day…

Last week I went on the London RIB river trip and what a great experience it was!  Once protective waterproofs and safety jackets had been issued we went aboard at the London Eye pier for the ride of a lifetime. 

As we were taken at a leisurely rate past the Houses of Parliament and under the bridges towards the Tower of London, we were given a talk about the history of the Thames by an informative and witty guide. 

Passing the river police station, we gained speed up to an exhilarating 30 knots until we reached Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs, where we turned for the return trip. 

As we picked up speed past Tower Bridge, the Bond theme music kicked in, which made the whole experience even better as we sped down the Thames. 

The crew were great and certainly knew their stuff, and I would recommend London RIB Voyages to anyone. What a fantastic way to see London!
