    Tour covers a lot of the main attractions in London but not enough time to enjoy the Tower of London which is actually quite large and we didn’t arrive until about an hour and change before closing. Also, you don’t visit the inside of Westminster Abbey which is definitely a missed opportunity. Still a good way to get a good sense of what London has to offer for history buffs.

    Do the full day! Tour Guide Shelia and Driver Dave were the best combo we could have asked for! Dave navigated through the city like a champ! Shelia's passion for the sites visited could be felt through her knowledge and guidance through the sites. Her delightful commentary was enjoyable and kept the day going. The overall tour design was lovely. We hit all the sites with plenty of time at each - never felt rushed at all. Additionally, my mother-in-law had a mobility device (rolling walker), so needed the occasional added assistance. Shelia and Dave were patient and helpful with our family unit, making sure she was always upfront and ready to roll! The only thing we missed was The Eye, but that was not the tour's fault; it was out of operation that day. Viator and Evan Evans issued the credit for our group within 24-48 hours of the end of our trip. Thank you to Shelia, Dave, and the whole Evan Evans team for making our one day tour in London just amazing!

    Loved our Scottish tour guide Sheila. Was pleasant, knowledgeable and well organized. Highly recommend!!

    Changing of the guard was crowded. We weren't able too see anything. David the guide was very knowlegable. Tower of London was memorable and saw the crown jewels. Long line for the crown display prevents you from London eye, but we took the river cruise the next day. Big bang for your buck.

    Great way to see a lot on a short trip. Bus is very nice. Make sure to pack snacks - only short time for lunch.

  • 23-Dec-2022

    Good tour with the opportunity to see the London highlights in one day. Our tour guide, David, is knowledgable and funny. Note that the departure point (gate 0 at the Victoria Coach Station) may be hard to find. Be sure to arrive the station at 8:20 am. The tour start boarding at 8:30 am and the coach/tour bus will depart on time. Don't forget to bring cash to tip the tour guide and the driver.

    Sheila was a great guide and knowledgeable. We got a great overview of the city. She answered our questions, took extra time to make sure the group was following, and was light hearted. Made the day very enjoyable.

    The fabulous Sheila is a great guide....especially loved St Paul's and the non-tourist changing of the guard.
