I would have rated this lower if I had not read the reviews, toppling my expectations. The tickets were a gift, so my hopes were quite high. In fact, the sound system on the bus is awful and I think a more attentive guide might have taken this into consideration and spoken more slowly and annunciated more clearly. Alan had good information and kept the group together while transferring transportation modes, but I did find his way of achieving this a bit harsh. Otherwise, not bad, but not great. Opportunities missed.

Extremely well organised, our trip lasted just over 5 hours from boarding the coach to leaving Harrods after our cream tea. Almost two hours in the open top coach with informative and amusing commentary from Dominic, a shirt break at The Tower of London, a short river trip with commentary from John, a coach to Harrods and then our cream tea in the stunning tea rooms. We were with transatlantic friends and we all had a great time. Sounds expensive but actually it is great value for money.

The bus portion of this 3 part tour included narration over a very poor audio system. I was unable to understand anything the guide (lovely lady) said. The boat portion was great and tea at Harrod’s exceeded my expectations.

Love the variety of activities on this tour and a way to meet people. The coach location was confusing--no signs directing to tour in the busy Victoria Coach terminal. Then we intermixed with other tours and could change plans during the afternoon. You needed to know what you paid for in order to make sure you did what you planned. Traffic on our day was crazy with one of the world's largest Pride parades so the path was condensed. We then "toured" ourselves for 1.5 hours at the London Tower before getting on the boat. Bus could have slowed a bit so you could take pictures as we passed major sites (St. Paul's and Westminster Abbey). Tea at Harrod's was great and you could stay as long as you wished as the tour ended there.

This was by far the best tour, we had a blast and laughed a lot! The bus is vintage and added to the experience. The tour guide was amazing, he had everyone on the top laughing as he gave a great history lesson of London. The boat ride was smooth and comfy as we road the River Thames. We enjoyed the cream tea at Harrods, the tea was good and the scones delicious. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see the sights and I hope you are lucky enough to get the same tour guide!!! The only thing I would change is the weather (it was drizzly, but it's London in the fall after all!!)

I only was able to spend a day in London, so this tour was a good way of seeing the highlights of London, as well as enjoying tea and scones. We rode around in the vintage bus, while the commentator points things out and gives you history of London. Then we got out and got to take a quick look at the Tower of London. After that, we got into a riverboat for about 45 minutes. Lastly, we went and had tea and scones at Harrods. It was a nice way of spending a day in London.

Despite the high price, I thought this combined tour (bus-boat- high tea) was a value and would give us a broad overview of the city and its rich history. Bottom line, it was a huge disappointment beginning with the difficulty in finding the place where you needed to get on the bus. The bus was hidden inside the depot behind several larger buses and there were no markings on the bus or guide near the bus. The first part is the bus tour which involved a speaker system that didn’t work and a guide that had little insight into London history. For example, she dropped us off at Buckingham Palace and gave us 15 minutes to look at it on our own and offered very little historical background. The total bus tour was maybe 45 minutes, mainly down a few major streets. Then we went to the Tower of London, were let off and given 20 minutes to walk around outside the tower on our own, again with no tour commentary about the tower or anything else in this very historical area. The boat ride was OK, although we waited almost as long to get on the boat as the ride itself. Finally, the tea at Harrods was a real disappointment. Instead of the typical assortment of breads, sandwiches and desserts, we just got 3 muffins and butter. I suggest setting up these 3 activities separately with another tour provider (for example London Walks), even if it cost a little more.

Tour guides were wonderful. This is a great way to do a whirlwind tour & experience a little of everything a short amount of time. Vintage bus definitely added to the experience. Would recommend.
