    It was very difficult to follow the tour guide and see what he was talking about. Also, if taking this tour again, I recommend getting there early to have a seat in to open section on the top level of the bus for the best views.

    Thorough and chilly tour
    Vicky_F
    , May 2022
    This tour delivers on what’s promised. You ride around London in a double decker open top bus, and you see most of the landmarks, most of which are lit up. The tour guide was knowledgeable. If you go at any time other than the warmest months of summer and you want to ride in the open top section of the bus be sure to bring a jacket/sweater and scarf or hat. The bus sometimes travels at ~30 km/hour and it can get cold.

    What a lovely tour to introduce you to London. Our coach driver handled the driving so smoothly. The tour guide, John, was incredible. He had a wealth of information and conveyed it in an interesting manner. He pointed out highlights as well as perfect photo ops! He was fun to listen to and talk with. He made each of us feel welcomed and valued. It was delightful evening.

    This tour was a great introduction to the famous and historic sites of London's city center. The guide was knowledgeable and even provided bonus information when a street closing forced a detour past a few buildings not on the planned itinerary. I highly recommend for any first time visitor!

    Our guide (sorry, forgot name) was very professional and informative about the sites we drove by. The bus drove by most all of the major sights, which looked great when lit up at night. It was very cold and it rained slightly off and on, so make sure you dress warm and have a rain jacket! Otherwise it was a fun ride touring at night!
