This is not your normal kind of boat trip... if you are expecting a nice, leisurely and relaxing ride as it floats slowly down the Thames, then forget it!

You will be zooming under the capital's bridges in a speeding boat, past some of London's most famous landmarks. It only goes at 35mph, but it seems like three thousand when you're actually sitting in it with water spray in your face.

Award-winning guides will be on-hand to entertain you as you 'pull G' past Canary Wharf, after zooming past the Houses of Parliament, London Eye, Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

Important note: You will have to undergo a safety briefing before you set off. These boats are quite fast, and they may experience some unpredictable movements as they travel along. The tour operates in all weather conditions, and wet weather gear will be provided for all ages and sizes. You will definitely get wet.

If you quite like the idea of a boat tour, but you don't fancy the speed (...and let's face it, the sheer terror!) of an RIB voyage, then you might like to check out the London Duck Tour instead. There are plenty more leisurely cruises up and down the Thames. The three biggest boat companies are City Cruises, Thames Clipper and Thames River Service.
