    Nice little tour

    Enjoyable and educational - the guide was funny and engaging and you get to see little bits of London that are off the beaten track, as well as some of the more quintessential spots. Note: Buckingham Palace cannot be seen directly from the tour and on the south bank you do not go past Parliment.

    Enjoyable and informative trip

    I took my mother on this trip for her 65th birthday, it was a beautiful sunny day so we had a lovely day. the lady was informative and made it fun! We saw alot that we wouldnt of seen on foot. We couldnt find the meeting point, gave the office a call from the app, whom directed us to it. Fantastic customer service as always!

    Great tour especially since we were only 3 passengers at 10:35 am! The dream in London where the buses are always crowded... Another positive point: no stop so overview of London and all there is to discover in 85 min... A guide in English clothes, a voice pleasant to listen to.... Only negative point: tour conducted in English, too bad there are no headphones in French for French tourists who are not well versed in the English language... To be done without hesitation!
