I would not suggest...
, Feb 2022
I would not suggest booking a tour with Viator as you have little recourse if something goes wrong. There was an accident on our way to the tour (we left an hour early to go 3 miles) and we were 4 minutes late. Therefore, the tour left without us. If it had been possible, I would have called and let them know we were running late, but there is no number listed to make a call. We were allowed very limited communication via the app, so we were not able to arrange a rendezvous point later. We also were charged for 4 people even though only 2 of us were in my party. In fairness, I was contacted via the app to confirm this number but since I received no notifications that I had a message nor did I receive an email or text, I was over charged. They did provide us with Tea at Harrods that was good. However, I would not recommend it. We received scones and Tea. There was no tea caddy or cakes like I presumed and the room and pastries were not as nice as other places. To be fair, the tour itself maybe lovely. I cannot say.
Best day out in London
, Nov 2019
The best day out from start to finish - Met at Victoria Coach Station by courier Lisa. Boarded the open top London bus and off we went. Lisa gave running commentary of places of interest and we had a Christmas sing song... lovely. Had a quick photo stop at Buckingham Palace then on to Tower Hill to board our cruise boat after an extensive tour of London. Boat was stunning another courier gave us perfect running commentary of the river. Then a super coach met us to take us for cream tea at Harrods which was very nice. Everything on this trip was perfectly coordinated and very good value. Compliments to the staff - 5+ stars 🌟🌟🌟
Very disappointed
, Jul 2019
Whilst I completely understand that the heavy traffic we encountered in the morning, which meant we missed part of the tour was not your fault, I do no understand why, when we re boarded the coach around 4pm to be taken to Harrods for the cream tea, no one had checked ahead to see if the demos around London had cleared. Nothing was said and we were taken to the exact same place we'd been held up in the morning. The Guides were unhelpful, uninformative and finally, at almost 5 pm, the time we should have been at the tea, we were told we could get off and try and make our own way to Harrods. We weren't advised as to whether Harrods would still accept us as was now going to be very late. My group were unable to get to the tea. I have a disability and would never have got there in time In any case we had further plans booked for 8 pm in the City. I was very very disappointed especially as this day out was for a very special occasion and was a surprise treat for my sister, who was part of the group. I only booked it because it included the Harrods tea. We've all been on the bus and river tours before and we are Londoners, so the Harrods part of trip was why I booked

What an experience
, May 2019
Our tour started on time, and we took off. The guide was wonderful, and, although we did not go the normal route, because of the marchers, it was most enjoyable. The bus was super, and we had time at the Tower of London to walk about. The boat ride was amazing. The guide really knew his stuff, and all went well. The tea at Harrods was a bit of a let down, as they did not fuss about us, but it was just before easter, and the crowd was big there. The waiters were run off their feet. I would have liked a bit of a History of the shop - but perhaps that was asking a bit much especially with the crowd. All in all, a very worthwhile experience.

Brilliant from start to finish

Sinead and Cameron were excellent Very informative tea followed off with a gorgeous cream tea will definitely do again

The peoples march was on that day, so there was a number of places the bus couldnt go. Was told we would stop at St Pauls, never happened because of traffic. Didnt get the cream tea as badly delayed due to road closures and one of the group had a booked train that she would of missed if we had stayed on the coach for Harrods. It would have been a nice day but completely spoiled.
Web site sucks
, Oct 2018
Web site is not user friendly, good for tech type people but be careful that it bounces back.. uggI was trying to do Jan 2019 and it booked Oct 2018 what gives
Brilliant day
, Oct 2018
Very well organised trip. The open topped bus courier, Dominic, was really good and interesting. My Grandchild felt they learnt a lot and adults enjoyed the banter, with plenty of laughs on the way. The travel from bus to boat and boat to Harrods was very well organised. Harrods Cream Tea was the icing on the cake. Everything went smoothly and was enjoyed by the whole family. Have recommended to friends and we will do other trips in future.
Fun Afternoon in London
Steve V
, Sep 2018
A good quick way to get an overview tour of London. Our guide was friendly and entertaining. Same with the guide on the Thames cruise. My only complaint would be with other passengers rushing and pushing to be first all the time. Hey, the bus isn't leaving any sooner.
Too much traffic
, Jul 2018
Our guide was informative, witty and interesting. But the roads are so crowded, the bus crawls from spot to spot and the fumes from all the surrounding cars are unpleasant. It would have been easier (and just as fast) to walk around with a good map of sites to see. The boat cruise was the highlight. We skipped the tea at Harrod's.
