London in One Day
Dec 2019
We took the Evan Evans general "London in One Day" tour on our first full day in London just to get an overview of the city. The whole operation was very professional and our guide was excellent. We stopped at the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, and the London Eye. All were good stops and our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining.

Absolutely Fantastic Tour!!
Mar 2020
This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. We traveled on a very new, clean and comfortable coach. Our tour guide, Debra, was extremely knowledgeable about not only St. Paul's, the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace, but about the history of London in general. This was one of the most informative tours I have ever been on. Debra was also very funny and charming and it was delightful to spend the day with her! We had a great driver also, Paul!

The time spent at the attractions was perfect, and the tour really allows you to see these major highlights of London in a day!

We will definitely tour again with Evans tours when we return to London! This tour has my highest recommendation!

London in one day
Mar 2020 • Friends
We enjoyed the tour during the day, sadly the tour date was changed last minute by EE and because of this, we didn’t get to see the changing of the guard on Buckingham palace. Although, we were taken to the change of the Horse Guard which was interesting, but not the same.
Thumbs up to Sheila, our guide, who was excellent: full of knowledge and with a very witty humor!
Would definitely use again!

AMAZING!!!!! You can see everything, we even saw the Queen!!!!!
Feb 2020
The tour guide also was amazing!! Rodney was amazing!!! I loved his humor! We did so much walking, but also got rest and down time in the warm bus. He was so knowledgeable. It was freezing out there but we saw the Queen leaving from Buckingham palace. He knew all the right spots to be at- at the right time!!!

Mel was Awesome!
Mar 2020 • Solo
I cant Express how amazing Mel was on this tour he made feel so welcome as I'd decided to take the tour on my own to pass my time whilst in London. He was funny, informative and made me look at history in a totally different way. I highly recommend this tour especially with Mel. The driver Tom was fantastic too.

London One Day Sightseeing Tour
Feb 2020
Despite the on-again/off-again rain, my husband and I had a great tour of some of the highlights of London. Sheila Urbani was a knowledgeable and warm guide with a great sense of humor. She and Barry, our driver, worked well together to get the bus around all the traffic of London. We had a front row site for viewing the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. The tour of the Tower of London was especially good and let us know it is a place where we want to spend more time on another trip to London. Our day ended with a cruise on the Thames River. This tour is a good way to identify sites you want to return to, as well as other sites to see, such as the museums, on other days of your stay or future trips.

Great tour of London
Mar 2020 • Solo
Went with Evanevans tours on a london in oneday tour. Coach departed on time,very comfortable coach and a safety video was played. Throughout the whole tour our guide Sheila urbani, who looked after our group throughout the day,gave a us a continued and in depth history of the most popular sights of London, and she did this with tremendous enthusiasm, and made sure the whole group were comfortable and enjoyed the tour. She took great care and concern for those with walking difficulties, and made sure these people had time to get on and of the coach, and gave time for them to get back on board the coach after each visit. Throughly enjoyed this tour with evan Evans and would strongly recommend this to visitors that would like a taste of a small part of London.
