Well organized tour, very fun and exciting experience, the bus runs all day and you can get on and off whenever you want at the indicated stops. This way we toured all over London! Too bad the queue at the London Eye which unfortunately limited the time for the cruise, but considering the period between Christmas and New Year's it is understandable. Highly recommended tour, everyone is very kind and helpful.

It was unfortunately pretty rainy weather when we went, but the guides knew all the cheats for still getting to see some guards even in the wet weather and offered for us to come back for free next time in London if we weren’t happy with what we’d seen, which I thought was great. Guides gave us lots of interesting information about the guards, ceremonies, royals and more. Can recommend!

Everything went well, except representative, who met us in front of Marriott. Rude, no answers, gave us tickets and just run away. So we didn't know how to rich our boat and bus. Good we booked time for London Eye. That representative was absolutely USELESS.

Very nice activity, we took advantage of the various stops to see where to visit the monuments. The guided tour in several languages allows you to know the history of the city and is very pleasant!

Seamless and great easy directions booking was so easy and the attractions great
