Itís then playtime, as our boat bounces along with the waves at an impressive 35+ knots with the icy chill in the London air making our faces go pink. We hold on tight as we twist and turn, spray from the Thames showering us as we motor along. On the way back, Santaís helper is on board as we fly the Thames, giving us a brief history on monuments as we pass ó from HMS Belfast and Tower Bridge, to the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament.
Itís the perfect way to combine a history lesson with fun and is a great opportunity to do some sight-seeing whilst enjoying an adventure. The Jingle Bell Blast tour is available every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Each trip combines a unique and memorable experience with informative banter from award-winning comedian guides, whilst high-tailing it through London.
Passengers can choose from one of the three exciting trips up the Thames from £32.50 each and £19.50 for children, to learn a little more about some of the landmarks that line the Thames. Options are available to charter the boat for parties. For more information, visit LondonRIBVoyages.com.
