This was a great tour to spot the points of interest we wanted to visit later in the week. As a first day activity, it was a great overview for those in our party who had not been to London. Great history and detail and convenience of getting on and off as we choose!

We rode both routes of the bus and so got a great look around London. Doing it on a Sunday early meant we were not held up by traffic at all. It was great to rest our legs and see a few extra sights. As well at night we took the boat trip to the Tower and back which was... More

I am very impressed with the amount of places visited on this London tour and the commentary from the very funny (sorry don't know your name but you were born in coronation day)and knowledgeable man on the red route. The staff from the seller's on the street through to the drivers were courteous and extremely helpful. highly recommended

Took the tour for one day and this company in particular is actually good, I also took the same company in Barcelona and Paris and will recommend it to anyone who wants to understand a place and get around on recognition of "area"

We have just had the most amazing weekend! We were entertaining 3 visitors from Belarus who had never been to the UK before. We had 48 hour tickets which included a boat ride on the Thames.

Staff really helpful. Cheaper than the others. Remember to buy online as you save money and get a free day. They also have a bus line that you can catch just to get to your hotel or station. Definitely make use of free boat trip. Driver and guide really good at recommending restaurants or routes to walk between stops
