  • Great sightseeing tour if you only have a limited time. Seeing London from the water was great. Our tour guide John was amazing. Informative and very funny

  • This tour was amazing!

  • What a great way to see London and have a cruise along the Thames. I would recommend that you do not take the optional London Eye along with this tour. A voucher is given for the Eye which means you have to stand in voucher line and then Eye line. It took 4 hours in line before we got on the Eye.

  • This tour is an absolute must! My family enjoyed it thoroughly and our guide, Richard, was fantastic. If you want to absorb London in 3 hours, this is the way to do it. The bus was epic vintage and the luxurious boat ride was just fantastic. I'd give this 10 stars if it were an option. DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR.

  • The bus was super cool and the tour guy was great! The tour was very personal and I would recommended if you don't have too much time to spare because this is not a hop-in hop-off bus.

  • Great idea when you don't want to spend too much time being a tourist guide was funny and knowledgeable. Great overview of the city!
