We thoroughly enjoyed our sightseeing bus tour, doing the whole yellow route on 19/04/22. We are a family of five and our three girls aged 14, 11 and 5 enjoyed it so much they didn’t want to get off and we entirely missed lunch! The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made it interesting and fun at the same time. I wish I’d got their names to add to this but we got on around midday at no 16 and the guide changed at no 1. We did the cruise from Tower Hill to Westminster on 20/04/22 around lunchtime and again everyone thought it was fab. The sailors/tour guides were full of fun facts and information. We did the blue bus route during the afternoon of 20/04/22 from no 21 to no 31 and that was good but the difference between an actual guide and an audio commentary, as on this route, is massive. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone visiting London. It was absolutely worth the money.

Our guide was Dan, and he was really awesome! He made the tour so enjoyable, and included everyone in the activities. The food he had arranged was sooo good, and we loved it all. He let us have time to go off by ourselves for a bit so we could further explore the Borough Market. I would absolutely take this tour if I was coming to London - and ask for Dan to be your guide!

Thank you for the excellent experience and that lovely trip . But please make sure your comes in time to pick your passengers waiting at the bus stop . Thanks

the tour of both Paris and London were excellent, buses were clean and the whole user experience were very pleasant

Excellent, you save time and money if you go to the fullest visiting what you like, super super recommended !!
