What people are saying about St Paul's Cathedral

Booked as a suprise for my mother's belated 70th birthday. We really enjoyed the whole experience and found our guide Pepe friendly fun and informative. There was a slight change to the route due to London bridge being closed but it didn't make any difference to the experience, We chose to sit on upper open air deck and was glad we dressed warm as it was cold, but thankfully dry. It was great experiencing the sights of London during the daylight but equally as lovely seeing it all lit up in the late afternoon. The river cruise was also great and interesting to see London from a different angle, again Jack was a great guide on the boat too. Again we braved the top deck which was open air and weren't disappointed. It did appear lovely and warm in the lower deck which would suit some people more. The afternoon tea at Harrods consisted of a glass of prosecco, two scones clotted cream and a pot of tea finished the tour off perfectly. Great tour and amazing value for money! 5* experience.

We do have one problem when trying to order our drinks on you booking from it dose not let you so we had to buy on the day it was not a problem for us but there was a older couple on the tote with us who order a bottle of wine and was very shocked to find out you charged them £45 pound I really think you need to get this fixed so people can order and see prices first

Dave was awesome. So was his dog (Archie). Took us to some great pubs that I probably wouldn't have discovered on my own. Lot's a hilarious inciteful anecdotes and banter. Great bunch of people on the tour. Would recommend 100%!

Would highly recommend the trip well worth the money , enjoyed the open top bus tour and then the river cruise was fantastic and then finishing off with afternoon tea at Harrods . Our tour guide Frank was fantastic

A very enjoyable tour. Even if you are not a beer drinker the history and humor make this tour a great experience. Our guide, Kevin was entertaining and informative. Would do it again.
