Forget open-top buses – here’s a tour that’ll really blow the cobwebs away! Strap in for a 75-minute RIB ride on the Thames, and take in the capital’s waterfront sights – including the London Eye, Tower Bridge, O2 Arena, and the Thames Barrier. Your journey begins at Embankment Pier, where you’ll board the twin turbo, 740hp RIB (rigid-hulled inflatable boat if you’re wondering). Once everyone’s donned their life jackets and taken a seat, you’ll set off upriver, towards Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. You’ll catch a glimpse of the MI6 building, before turning back and accelerating downriver, past the London Eye, St. Paul’s, and the Tower of London. Once the boat passes under Tower Bridge, your guides can really open up the throttle. You’ll speed through the Docklands – passing Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena, and eventually arriving at the Thames Barrier, London’s impressive defence against high tides and storm surges. Throughout the tour, passengers benefit from an entertaining commentary, which provides some context to all the sights and thrills. Back at Embankment Pier, you’ll disembark – windswept – with a new appreciation for the capital’s historic, ever-changing waterfront. The Thames Barrier RIB Experience is a unique tour for thrill-seeking sightseers. An Experience Days gift voucher is the perfect excuse for a grand day out!
