Booked through Get your Guide. Printed tickets off but downloaded App too. Purchased a day pass so worked out what we could do in a day using the Pass. Used Big Bus Tours. It takes ages to get around the whole circle of the city. We were told 2 hours but its more like 2 and 1/2. Missed seeing some of the landmarks due to road closures. We went to Westminster Abbey. Booked 3pm to 3.30pm slot at St Paul's. Boarded the bus at 1.45 and only just made the slot at 3.30pm. The bus went past the Abbey 3 or 4 times which was strange. From St Paul's we made our 6pm booking at the Shard. Would recommend purchasing the pass and the attractions we visited.

The WWII Westminster Walking Tour and Churchill's War Rooms was a great tour experience. The tour guide was knowledgable and engaging. We really enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend!

Superb guide, very knowledgable and a pleasure to listen to! We thoroughly enjoyed this tour every single minute (even when the rain came pouring down.....).
