My husband and I did this nighttime tour tonight and loved it! Sure it was cold up top but we didn't care! Uninhibited views of London at night! Plus very little traffic so we zipped through the town like we owned it. Michael was our guide. He gave us so much information!!!! With some comedy on the side! Amanda drove our bus brilliantly all over town. We spent our Sunday seeing a matinee and an evening show and then followed it up with this nighttime tour! A perfect 24 hours in London (it was a stopover)!

Just finished a fantastic tour with Bruce and Oliver. My two children absolutely loved seeing London by night. In a tough time for tourism I would encourage Londoners to see their city. Thank you so much Bruce and Oliver- great company on our tour.

I really enjoyed this. The sights look stunning at night. Only downside is you can’t take very good photos as the bus is moving too fast. Would be good if they could introduced some stops. The commentary was hard to hear on the top deck. It was very quiet not sure if this was due to Covid. We went on the 9:15 tour as I wanted to go whilst it was dark. They advertise masks must be warn and they’ll provide you with gloves but they didn’t provide gloves and nobody wore masks. You can get 2 for 1 if you’ve travelled to London by train.

We were on the top of the bus but within the plexi glass and not in the open bus top area. It was frustrating because the plexi glass was dirty and scuffed up which made it challenging to take pictures. Make sure you get there early to get a good seat. The tour guide was knowledgeable but it was hard to pay attention because I was focused on the dirty/scuffed plexi glass and not being able to take quality pictures.

This was a last minute trip for me and my boyfriend as we had seen a few of these yellow busses around London during our holiday and wanted to try. We were expecting a pleasant drive around London with a few good photo ops - our experience was this and so much more! The tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and very funny which made the trip very enjoyable. It was also very organised. There was a road closure on the planned route, but we continued along a different road and it all went so smoothly. Not only this, but the tour guide was clued-up enough to inform us all about other buildings on the new route too! Very well done.

10/10 recommend :)

My partner and I did the London by night tour last night and couldn’t recommend it enough. The guide John was fantastic and had brilliant knowledge of London. The views at night time were amazing. We found it very relaxing after a long day of walking to sit back and see London from the bus at a nice speed. Would recommend this tour to everyone. It was definitely a highlight for us.

A first open top bus tour for my mother and I, and we loved it. So convenient next to Green Park tube station. We booked on line in advance. A thoroughly good tour of London and all the iconic sights, and Chay, our tour guide, was very informative, friendly and funny! So nice to see London lit up at night. Highly Recommend, and nice to have a sit sown for 1.5 hours after walking all day!!

Booked a bus tour for Friday night and couldn’t make it. No refund. Had it been a Monday night bus tour I’d understand, but our cancellation was on a busy Friday night. They kept the money as a free gift. Ok guys.

5 stars, it was an amazing tour around London. We forgot the guides name! However he so knowledge, and interacted with everyone. We learnt so much about the 2 cities (Westminster & London) and seen so many sites. We went on the 9.15pm tour (left a bit earlier) so glad we did as London is amazing all light up. Thanks again for a great experience. Highly recommended.

Really great way to see the sights, especially if you’re short on time. Tour guide was brilliant - knowledgeable, informative and a good sense of humour. Only reason I didn’t award 5/5 is because they don’t accept mobile tickets, I had to get the ticket printed, which, considering I booked whilst we were in London, wasn’t straight forward.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for the time you have taken to write this review. London By Night is not operated directly by us but rather is a partner that we work with and unfortunately at the moment they do require paper tickets. It does state this on the booking information however, if you are traveling, we can see the frustration with not having access to a printer. We are looking into paperless solutions with all of the attractions which we sell (some of them are already paperless). We would love to make this change not only from a logistics and customer service perspective but also from an environmental perspective. Thank you for bringing this up and we are looking at our different options with renewed energy. Best wishes, Evan Evans Team
