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 London’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 James Bond’s headquarters, 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 awesome defence against high tides and storm surges. Throughout the tour, kids benefit from an entertaining commentary, which provides some fun facts to accompany all the sights and thrills. Back at Embankment Pier, you’ll disembark windswept, breathless, and grinning ear to ear! The Thames Barrier RIB Experience is an exciting tour for thrill-seeking young sightseers. An Experience Days gift voucher is the perfect excuse for a grand day out!
