Tour buses. They’re all the same right? WRONG! In actual fact most tour buses are the same but there are a select few that have become more diverse to provide the best experience for their customers. The Classic Tour is one of these companies and we now offer private hire.

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!


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 …. “Amazing tour through historic London”


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 …. “Top Tour”


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 …. “Excellent tour!”


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.”
