We thoroughly enjoyed our sightseeing bus tour, doing the whole yellow route on 19/04/22. We are a family of five and our three girls aged 14, 11 and 5 enjoyed it so much they didn’t want to get off and we entirely missed lunch! The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made it interesting and fun at the same time. I wish I’d got their names to add to this but we got on around midday at no 16 and the guide changed at no 1. We did the cruise from Tower Hill to Westminster on 20/04/22 around lunchtime and again everyone thought it was fab. The sailors/tour guides were full of fun facts and information. We did the blue bus route during the afternoon of 20/04/22 from no 21 to no 31 and that was good but the difference between an actual guide and an audio commentary, as on this route, is massive. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone visiting London. It was absolutely worth the money.

Great hop on hop off bus tour around London with live commentary on some buses. The yellow line is very regular service and blue line which takes you a wider route less frequent. The Thames cruise was excellent, highlight of tour with very informative, funny commentary. Highly recommend and cheaper than other tours offering same service.

Thank you for the excellent experience and that lovely trip . But please make sure your comes in time to pick your passengers waiting at the bus stop . Thanks
