Really good commentary
I went with a friend and we both agreed how informative the guide was. Despite the roads being busy we felt safe with the driver that we had. Really worth taking the tour. Best way to see London is on a top deck of a bus!
Amazing tour through historic London
Very amazing and entertaining tour. Our guide was Joe and he was fantastic. So many interesting things we found out about the main places: Big Ben, Trafalgar square, House of parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral and other statures and buildings. You could sense his passion about London history. The tour took about 75 min and it was worth the money.
We booked this tour with a Groupon deal. Very good value for money and very enjoyable. Not a long tour, maybe 75 minutes but we saw so many top London sights and the commentary was informative and amusing. Definitely go for the top deck as you see so much more. Might try the Ghost Bus Tour next.
After walking thousands of steps I wanted to sit and have a comfortable tour with a real live tour guide. I was very pleased with this. The tour was £21 in comparison to the other tours at £30. We hit a multitude of places on the almost an 1 1/2 hour tour (it’s not hop on hop off). Jamie the tour guide was fabulous!
The tour guide was funny and full of interesting anecdotes. I enjoyed the tour very much. It was nice not to have the bus constantly stopping to drop off and pick up passengers and the tour was just the right length. Highly recommended.
“Had a fantastic experience on this tour. The tour guide was brilliant – he delivered a comic and informative take on London.”
“What a fantastic experience, I can’t recommend this tour enough. The tour guide was very informative and comical at times. He was very helpful too. We travelled with 2 young children who really enjoyed it as much as we did. We got to see all London’s top attraction as well as parts we never knew about. The tour made our day and would definitely book again.”
“Our tour guide was informative and funny, really enjoyed our tour and would do it again!”
“Learned a lot about London I never knew and saw areas I’ve never been to before which has sparked an interest to return and do some more sight-seeing stuff. All in all a lovely day and would definitely recommend to others!”
