Thames RIB is surely one of the most exciting tours of London you can take. What better way to see the city than whipping down the river in a high-speed inflatable boat?

This prize means you can take the whole family on the longest (and therefore most fun) tour, the Thames RIB Experience, which goes from Central London all the way to the Thames Barrier and back.

You can go early in the year for winter thrills or take it when the weather warms up a little – the ticket is valid for 9 months.
