We took two tours with the English Bus Company on a recent trip to London and both were a smashing success. We went to Stonehenge and Bath on one tour and to Stratford, Oxford and the Cotswolds on another. Both tours were lead by expert guides (Andy, Chris and Johnny). The guides were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and funny. They made... More

I've travelled...a lot! This tour certainly rates right up there as the best tours I've experienced on any continent. Johnny, the driver and tour guide, was a wealth of knowledge. Fast talking and full of wit, he was an absolute pleasure to be around from start to finish. Humour for me is somewhat important and the commentary throughout the day... More

The size was perfect for touring, and the tour was informative but personal. Also, Colin's an amazing guy/dream boat.

My teenage Daughter and I did two tours with this company, we both throughly enjoyed ourselves, it was the highlight of our European tour. Chris was our guide, loved all his stories and his passion for his beautiful countryside. If we go back to London I will definitely go on another tour with this company. It is a must book,... More

We booked this tour prior to our trip with Chris. We took the train from London to Salisbury, where he picked us up. He drove us through Salisbury and then to Stonehenge. He gave us a lot of interested facts and stories along the way. Stonehenge is interesting. You skip the lines, and they have buses going out and coming... More

Johny was our witty knowledgable tour guide who took us to Stonehenge and Bath. My daughter loves history and found Johny's fun facts to be extremely entertaining. We have traveled all over the world and found this tour to be one of the best!

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
