    What a delightful way to see the sights in London! Our tour guide (older gentleman with silver hair carrying a pink duster) was funny, knowledgeable, and really cared that us tourists went away with a positive view of the city. It also helped that the weather was absolutely PERFECT. The company as a whole seemed pretty well organized based on my dealings with them and watching them in action at the bus station.

    Derek the guide and Jermaine the driver were absolutely amazing start to finish. Derek is so lovely and knowledgeable and you can totally tell his heart is into this tour from start to finish. Loads of photos taken that you would never just stumble across locations. We also went on Jack the ripper tour same evening with Derek as our guide...amazing bloke! Thanks so much.

    Purtroppo abbiamo acquistato 9 biglietti per un tour di Londra pensando di vedere i principali monumenti della città e la cerimonia del cambio della guardia a Buckingham Palace, come scritto sul loro itinerario. Invece nulla di tutto ciò. Un banale giro veloce in bus di una parte della città con un audio incomprensibile. Molto meglio giro hop on - hop off con altre compagnie dove scendi e risali ad ogni monumento che si vuole vedere.

    A royal day. Changing of the guard was so dramatic. The state rooms just stunning and the river cruise so scenic. Enjoyed the Buckingham cafe for tea and dessert and picked up a darling welsh corgi keyring.

    I can thoroughly recommend this tour and the team Sinhead being the tour guide were fantastic .Sinhead knew so much about every place we visited her knowledge of our history and the Royal guards was second to none .

    Peter our tour guide kept reminding us how this was his day off and he shouldn’t have taken this shift. Often saying how miserable it was to be there. The cruise was mostly a waste. Seemed very rushed. A group of women did not know they had to tell Peter they were seeing the London Eye after. Peter starting yelling at them telling them they should have told him sooner. He basically told them the best he could do for them was getting off the bus now and walking. After they left, he was putting them down to the tour. Not professional at all. Made several comments that were inappropriate for children. Did not represent tour company well and did not make anyone excited to be there.

    Excellent tour. Gavin our guide was exceptional. He made a drama of the whole experience. His knowledge of London and delivery of it was incredible, entertaining, and most enjoyable for the whole family. This is a great way to get a taste of all the main attractions in central London in a couple of hours. Included was a trip up the Thames giving an alternative view at all the attractions. The changing of the guard as a spectacle was fantastic and enriched by Gavin’s commentary not only for ourselves in his group but for all in earshot. Thanks for a wonderful day today.

    Totally enjoyed our bus tour on Sunday morning. We were able to see so much of London, in a short period of time. The driver was super spectacular, especially when you consider he had to avoid the bike London. We made it on time to the changing of the guards. Most tour groups missed it ,being stuck in traffic. Our guide had the perfect combination of knowledge and humor. We totally enjoyed!!!!
