It was very informative however our tour guide Omar wanted to get the trip done by 5 which gives us not so much time at each venue.. If you are a senior with mobility or lung problems do Not take this trip. At Buckingham Palace YOU WALK AT LEAST 3 KM IN AND 3 KM OUT. At this point we left as lost at the bus pick up.We phoned the company and they told us it was up to us to catch them at the next stop.We had no idea how to get there on our own. Finally i got directed to the right place by a townie from London. The rest of the trip was a a whirl wind tour and a race to keep up. We enjoyed what we seen but they was too much to see in a short time. I would not recommend it because of the fast pace and the lack of service for senior customers.
We had another tour booked with Evans for the next day but we cancelled it. No more Evans for us. Not a good experience!

The guide was excellent. The first part of the tour was in the bus with change of guard at Buckingham Palace and the second part was St Paul Cathedral and Tower of London. The day ended with a cruise on the river Thames

We booked a full day tour. After driving around London and having Godfrey entertain us with the sites and history of London, we then went on to St Paul's Cathedral. For walking around outside the coach, we had boxes with ear phones to hear the commentary of what we were being shown. Everything was given as promised and would certainly use again.

Sheila was an amazing tour guide. Professional, courteous, and knowledgeable! We felt as if we were able to gain valuable insight into the history of England and not only general information but specific and special tidbits of information at each location. A comfortable coach with a skilled driver made this an excellent tour!

Don't quite know where to start. After shelling out $230 for my family to see London via the Big Red Bus, I feel taken, hoodwinked, and shell shocked. And cold because even though it's December the buses are not heated. Or at least the heat is not turned on.

We waited for the bus at Kings Cross St Pancras (near our hotel) in the freezing rain this morning. No buses in sight. 20 minutes go by...30 minutes...no buses. Finally one comes around the corner. As we frantically wave to slow him down he blows by us! I ran down the street, chasing after him, to get him to stop but nothing. Another 30 minutes goes by without any buses and a SECOND one blew by us. Finally one pulls up at the bus stop and lets us on. At this point me and my children are frozen, haggard, and in need of warmth so we got on. Great start to the day. Insert sarcasm here.

But there is no heat on the bus. It's December, it's raining / snowing, and it's as cold on the bus as it is outside. Maybe colder because the bus is moving.

We get to the connection point with the main red and blue lines and out we got to the rain and snow again. We are herded onto another bus, again no heat whatsoever, there are no bathrooms anywhere (at one point in the day we were told to go to a pub to use the bathroom, at another point McDonalds). And for the next 2 hours we drive around London freezing our butts off, stuck in traffic most of the time, while a "live tour guide" half-heartedly mumbles into a microphone about the sites we are passing.

Then we are herded into a third bus and given earphones to listen to a hokey, boring explanation of the sites insterspersed with hokey boring music. Two hours of traffic and freezing cold later the bus pulls up to a bus stop and we are told that's the end of the tour, that the buses are done for the day. Mind you this is at the absolute furthest point in the route from where we started. So now it's a $20 Uber ride home on top of the $230 I already paid for the tour. And I'm due a second day (we bought the 2 day pass) but if I never get on one of these moronic red buses again it will be too soon. A live torture session at the Tower of London with me as as the subject would be more enjoyable.

There are enough expletives. Avoid avoid avoid.

We LOVED this tour! We saw all the top spots in London in just one day! Our tour guide, Leon was fantastic! He was informative and entertaining. I couldn’t believe all the stuff we packed into one day without feeling rushed. Honestly, we saw so much on this tour we felt like we didn’t have anything left to visit during our next few days in London. St. Paul’s Cathedral was amazing! We loved the tour inside, it is truly incredible and awe inspiring inside. Leon was a Pro! He knew so much about each stop and literally EVERYTHING we passed while driving through the city! My favorite stop was The Tower of London. There is so much history there and it’s fascinating! Make sure even if you don’t go on this tour, you take a guided tour of the Tower. I couldn’t imagine missing out on that. We also got to see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Leon got us a great spot to see the pageantry of it all. Would recommend this to anyone who is short on time in London and wants to hit all the hot spots!

Leslie gave us a well informed and very good tour of St. Paul’s! She was very informative on all the sites from the coach. Gave us great tips on how best to view the changing of the Queen’s Life Guard. Good tour and very good guide.

Our guide Leslie then bus driver Steve work together to give us a wonderful experience, showing us small details of London that we would not be able to uncover by ourselves. Although this was our fourth visit to London we could not be happier with this well planned Tour that focused on a perfect I’m pleasant day

One wonderful part of our tour of London was having the wonderful, delightful, knowledgeable SHEILA URBANI as our guide! What an absolute pleasure. So friendly and personable, and she knew everything we were curious about! If I could book her to guide us on every tour, I would! And an added bonus; Barry as our driver. He was amazing as well. (side story- about half an hour before we boarded our bus, my wife need to use the restroom. we didnt know you had to pay! we had no change! as we were asking the ticket people about that, Barry just walked up to us and gave us each a coin to use for the toilets! we had no idea he would be our driver! THANK YOU BARRY! and THANK YOU SHEILA! i hope you're both around when we return to london hopefully next year for more tours! :)
Cheers, from San Diego California!
