    Your Thames River Fully-guided Jetboat Cruise tour starts from Westminster Pier, located opposite Exit 1 of Westminster Tube station and is a two minute walk from Big Ben.

    You will be given waterproof gear to protect you from the spray and the guide will give you safety instructions, before the start of your journey. Just as you begin your journey, you will get a great view of the London Eye.

    Your boat will speed through some of the iconic sights along the river, while your guide will give you insights about their fascinating history. The boats are equipped with sound systems, so that you can hear your guide and do not miss a thing while enjoying the hi-speed ride. Some of the attractions you will come across are:
    St. Paul’s Cathedral
    • The Shard
    • Tower of London
    • Tower Bridge
    • Canary Wharf
    • The O2
    • Thames Barrier

    The boat will also pass under five or six of London’s most important bridges including the most modern Millennium Bridge.

    Hold on tight after you pass Canary Wharf, since the boat will zoom at its fastest speed.

    You'll also pass by historic Royal Greenwich and its riverside palace on your way to the barrier, and the boat will slow down at this point to let you appreciate the beauty of its beautiful buildings including the Royal Observatory back up on the hill above.
