It isn't obvious where you will board the bus but it is at the end of the street closest to Her Majesty's Theatre. Very well organised boarding and each child is given a really good quality booklet with lots of information and spaces to fill in answers to questions about some of the things they will see. Commentary was loud enough to hear from the back seat. Very clear. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would go again.

Enjoyed our tour,very informative,host was very knowledgeable and entertained us and our children.explored a lot on Harry Potter locations which has inspired many scenes throughout the films.

Very cool London in a nutshell. Departure on time. The guide speaks very clearly and interestingly. I recommend.

A very good moment both for the places discovered and for the animation of the visit. Thank you

Louis was very nice and it was a very amazing experience in a undiscovered London. Thanks!!
