Lovely tour with good atmosphere
Jun 2021 • Friends
Took the tour with a friend even though we are both Londoners - fun and a bit different! Cakes and scones were delicious and the service was absolutely 10/10, very friendly staff on board. Good music playing and 1hr30mins was the perfect length to see lots of lovely sights. Only minor point would be that some commentary could be good as I imagine there will be tourists taking the tour not familiar with the sights we saw.

Poor sound quality
Sep 2020
Friendly guide, and snacks were good, but I couldn't hear the tour guide during the description of the sights etc. She said the microphone was broken.

I wish there were more sight descriptions as this was the reason for booking this tour.

Overall ok, but I feel it was a bit too pricey

Marvellous afternoon
Sep 2020
My daughter and I recently joined a (COVID restrictions compliant) tour with Vaughan, Aurora and Nilesh. It was a fantastic afternoon - Vaughan giving treat insights (new even to a long-time Londoner like me). Aurora and Nilesh were wondeful too.

We also had confectioneries from Maison Choux which were sublime! If you have a sweet tooth and they are on your menu options, grab them.

Scam
Sep 2020 • Friends
This will be the first of our parties negative reviews. This company is shocking. Had a hen do organised with them for 65pp. Poor address given for a pick up at bus stop 0 in victoria. Tired both stations in victoria to no avail. Made a phone call to the number given where a man just kept repeating the same address. Even asking the people and the staff around the area had no idea. The golden tour office was boarded up so jo help there. We are all out of pocket and no sign of a refund. We will all be taking legal advice we will be taking this to credit card claim and small claims court to gain the monies back. If anyone is looking at this company and thinking about using them i would look through the other reviews to see others who have had the same issue and offered only discounts to go again.

Excellent way to see London with Great Food
Sep 2020
Had a lovely afternoon with Karin & Alirora on the London Afternoon Tea bus Karin & Alirora were the perfect hosts and catered for all our needs. Food was very fresh and plentiful and tasty. It was just as shame that there was no commentary but understand the speaker wasnt working that day. As the roads were very quiet the tour finish earlier than the 90 mins but the Driver Oliver to make up for this took us on a little different route to make up the time. When leaving pictures were taken and came away with a souvenir mug. Would do this again.

Londoner enjoys London
Aug 2020 • Couples
With London so quiet, it's a great time for Londoners to be a tourist in London! This trip, with Prosecco and afternoon tea, was a relaxed 2 hours touring the sights and streets we (sort of) know well.
We didn't learn much from the commentary - obviously designed for true visitors. But just watching the sights go by while selecting delish finger sarnies and scrummy cakes, made a gr time, and Nilesh was the driver who took us zgenrly around. . We were well looked after by Aurora and Karip and our driver, Nilesh, took us around so smoothly the prosecco was never going to tip over!.

Fabulous and Fun Afternoon Tea Experience
We use Bella Vista Bus for a Hen Doo on 14th March 2020 & despite being a little nervous when initially booking it (as it wasn’t the traditional London Red Bus) I cannot speak highly enough of our experience. The booking experience through Golden Tours was seamless, we had a few variation requests and wanted extra bottles of bubbly which they communicated ready for the day.
From the moment we let the company know we’d arrived at Victoria, we were accompanied to the departure area, greeted by a lovely lady who was our host. The bus inside was beautifully and tastefully decorated. They let us put up the few decorations we had and everyone got settled. The hostess gave us a device which meant we could choose our own music and she was extremely attentive to all our needs. The food was tasty and enough. Although being a tour of London there is no-one pointing out the sights (not that we would of wanted that) but just in case people looking at this experience are wondering. Come the end the host advised me that we had two bottles of bubbly still remaining and she would put them in a bag for me to take away. She let our bride to be sit in the drivers seat of the bus and took photos of the hen party for us. I would highly recommend this afternoon tea bus tour, I felt it was extremely good value for money as well for exclusive use of the bus. Thank you to all involved in making such special memories for our bride to be!!
