Amazing Experience

This was just the best choice for a Sunday afternoon. I was really excited from the moment I booked this boat trip with the fastest boats in Thames River. It was a very sunny day so that made the experience even better. My friend and I went to the Embankment pier where the trip starts, and were very welcomed by the friendly staff of Thames RIB Experience. We were given jackets and life jackets to put on and we got on the boat without having yet a clear idea of what was going to follow.
The trip started with sightseeing and information about the history of London. It was a very special way to see and learn about London with the anticipation of the speeding that would follow. Thanks to a James Bond movie that was filmed in one of the buildings by the river, the whole experience was focused on this fact. With the music of James bond playing in the background and the boat starting to speed up it made us all feel like we are playing in a James Bond film (Yes I had my black sun glasses on and the Bond girl image). We got to Canary Wharf and then the boat started speeding to the max making sharp turns that brought our faces literally centimetres away from the water. The whole trip lasted for about an hour and had nothing to do with anything I had done before.
On the boat we had people of all ages, from little kids to older people that all seemed to enjoy it to the max, with none of us feeling uncomfortable at any time. When we got back we had the chance to see pictures of our funny faces whist the speeding was taking place.
I recommend this boat trip for two main reasons: An innovative way to learn important things about London and an adventurous way to play with the water and speed. (And an idea of how it feels like to be in a James Bond movie:) ). I am definitely re-visiting soon.

Thames RIB Experience

This is the stylish way to see London by far. I and my friends wanted to see London and its sights in a different way and we really did. Thames RIB Experience is the speed boat company that we used I was greeted by their friendly staff, who handed out the life jackets, whilst listening to the safety announcement.

I was told by the guide that the boat that we travelled on where RIB boats these are ridged inflatable boat and apparently the RLNI and the services use these boats, because of its buoyancy and ability to carry out sharp turns

We departed from Embankment Pier and headed off to the MI6 and MI5, we took in all the information about James Bond whilst listening to all the music form previous movies, I felt like a true Bond girl. After this the skipper took us down to tower Bridge where the Engines roared and we where off, weaving and turning trough the Thames at 65 mph!! . On the way I saw Canary Wharf and Greenwich before going through the Thames barrier.

I had a fab time with my mates, it is truly the ultimate experience; and I would recommend it to any one .
