Full description
Bring your nearest and dearest for a truly unique adventure. Be together on board your very own charter experience, reserved just for you and your guests. You will have a speedboat all to yourselves as you're whisked out for a breathtaking blast of fun in the fresh air.  First you will be given a full safety briefing and a life jacket, before stepping on board the high-speed vessel from The London Eye pier. Then, feel the wind on your face and the sun on your skin as you travel along the River Thames in central London. Your guide will lead you and your crew, keeping the banter flowing and offering teasers, facts and tales along the way. Let that carefree feeling of singing along at the top of your voice come flooding back, with the trademark onboard sing-a-long medley. For the first time ever small groups can take to the river Thames on a private speedboat ride without the exclusive price tag. The vessel, skipper, guide, and sound system are all yours.
