    The guide and bus driver were amazing. My dad needed extra help with his walker, and they were most accommodating to his needs! Your great staff is why we will book with you again. Thank you

    Our guide was wonderful,but we really did nothing that you could not do on your own for free. We met the bus at Victoria Station, went to the area of Westminster and got out, only had about 15minutes to walk around. After that the bus took us to the area of Buckingham Palace, where we got out and walked near the palace and took some pictures. Never did see the changing of the guard because it was not a day they change. That was all we did and we did the a.m. only and felt it was a total waste. The London Eye was nice but if you purchase with that option you do it on your own, and it can be done any day you wish. The only thing is you still have to wait in two lines with your voucher, one to get the ticket and than another, which is extremely long, to get on the eye itself.

    The tour feels a bit random. Photo stops are too short to see anything.

    The guide has a wide knowledge in history, but watching the changing of guards was a bit chaotic, I presume just too many people in that area !

    We did not see the changing of the Guard. It turned out that all we saw was the Horseguard. Marching in. This tour was disappointing overall.

    I took the same trip two years ago, and it was much better. I mainly did it again so my mom could see the changing of the guard. Two years ago, our tour guide put us in a much better position to see it. This time, we couldn't even see it. I could have done a better job on my own. We saw very little this time compared to 2 years ago.

    Our our guide was changed at the last minute and we were without a guide for the first 10 minutes of the trip. The more disappointing aspect was not seeing the changing of the guards which was our primary reason for booking this tour. Finally, our tour guide lost a few people along the way and did not seem concerned about their welfare. Very unfortunate experience for us.
