What you'll do

We will see London's historic sights aboard the biggest speedboat on the River Thames. Your skipper will be David, the owner of Thames Tigers, assisted by either Debbie or Ruth, David's partner or daughter. The trip will start in the heart of the city at Blackfriars Pier. It'll take us 6 minutes to reach the high-speed zone on the river, during which time you will get a guided tour past Tate Modern, St Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the Golden Hind, under London Bridge, past The Monument, the Walkie Talkie building, Old Billingsgate Fish Market, HMS Belfast, The Tower of London and get a great selfie as we go under Tower Bridge. Then hold tight as we open the throttles and blast at 35mph (56km/hr) for 10 miles (16km) through historic Wapping; Canary Wharf; the Cutty Sark at Greenwich to the O2 Arena, where we'll do a high speed turn for home. If we're lucky we may even spot some seals! PLEASE NOTE THE LENGTH OF THE ACTUAL TRIP IS 45 MINUTES When you buy an airline ticket you have the opportunity to offset the CO2 produced by paying for Carbon Credits. We buy these on your behalf and believe the small addition to our operating cost is a price worth paying. Please ask if you'd like more information

As a born Londoner I love to show our fabulous city to visitors. Big cities can seem unwelcoming places and it's lovely to be able to meet our guests with a friendly welcome amongst the chaos of London. I'm an ex-firefighter and have been navigating boats on the River Thames for many years. A speedboat trip through the centre of London is a really thrilling experience, with some of the most iconic views in the world thrown in! You'll be in safe hands and I promise it'll be a trip that you will never forget. Take the time to read some of my reviews; they make me smile.

More tips

You can bring small bags with you but please don't bring large items of luggage. PLEASE ARRIVE AT BLACKFRIARS PIER AT LEAST 15 MINUTES BEFORE DEPARTURE TIME. London traffic can be unpredictable so the best way to travel to Blackfriars is by Underground. Allow plenty of time for your journey.
