We had great fun driving through London with a Smart Yonda car. Thumbs up for the whole smart concept and great service. We were fortunate to experience this for free, but would have been very happy to have paid for the trip. A real must do when visiting London. Driving is made very easy by the interactive route assistent.

We are visiting from Australia and this was a great way to see London. We have done it twice. First time with just my girlfriend and I. Second time when my girlfriends parents were visiting.

You avoid walking with the crowds, it has great commentary throughout the whole journey, and you can go at your own pace. Highly reccomend if you are visiting London.

Booked this tour for me and my 11 year old son and we loved it. My son wasn’t keen on a 2 seater smart car but changed his mind when the roof went down! 😉

There’s a smart tablet device that narrates the tour whilst the arrows on the tablet show you where to drive. Don’t worry if you miss a turn - a GPS kicks in to get you back on track (speaking from experience)!

My son learned so much plus I also learned new things too. Apart from on a monopoly board i’ve never been to Bond Street - but this car took me there! 😄

We did our tour at 6pm on Friday, which was perfect as the traffic was light and lighting was perfect for driving.

I wasn’t confident enough to just pull over, although you can, so our pics were limited. That said, with the aid of a selfie stick my son was able to take photos out the roof, which avoids car dash etc being in them 😉

Dan was a superstar - booking us in, giving info on the equipment then giving us directions through Hyde Park after our tour had finished.

I’d definitely recommend this tour; a novel way to see this wonderful city and hear all about it’s revered history. Go Yonda!

Hi Julie B Thanks for giving us a fantastic five-star rating and taking the time to write a review, we really appreciate it. Glad to hear that your son loved the experience too, the open-top cars are a favourite among younger passengers and adults alike. Hope to see you again in another city soon. Best wishes Daniel

Absolutely loved our Go Yonda tour and highly recommend! Despite living in London, I realised how little I really knew...learnt so much! The virtual tour guide is really funny and just adds to the hilarity of driving around in a branded, soft-top, silly little Smart car!! The tour really shows you some of London's best bits, is fascinating and very entertaining. The whole concept is very well thought-out.
The cars are super clean and really easy to drive, the sat-nav virtual tour means you can't really go wrong either. Just watch out for the road-raging black cab drivers!
Daniel and the team were really flexible and even managed to get hold of an extra car for us at very short notice when an extra friend wanted to join the group.

Really worth doing this whether you're a tourist or Londoner born and bred!

This was great, probably the best part of our trip to London. Enjoyed being able to go at our own pace, the comfort, and the virtual guide was really entertaining - learnt lots of new things too!

I was initially a little apprehensive about driving around central London and if the price would be worth it, compared to the usual bus tours etc. However this is truly unique and cannot be compared to anything else. First up, the customer service is absolutely superb, definitely not as you would find with other tours, and they really have thought of everything - each morning they drive the route to make changes if there are roadworks etc so you're not left stranded. Secondly, the little smart car is awesome! The sat nav/ commentary really is great and makes driving around London really easy - plus I found other road users like cab drivers or buses really accommodating to the little car. We were lucky enough to have a sunny day so had the roof down which made it even more fun, and driving round places like seven dials and down the Mall to Buckingham Palace was really great fun. We had a really great time and it is so worth the money, 100% recommend. It is also nice to support new businesses where the passion and level of service is so good - book now, you'll love it!

We had a great experience doing the Yonda tour. It's a very unique thing to do in London and I'll definitely recommend it to anyone visiting London. It gives you a very different view of London, the car was a joy to drive and the added fun of getting to drive around the streets of central London yourself is a very fun and unique thing to do!
Daniel was very patient and informative!

The pick up of the car went incredibly smoothly. As I'm used to rental car companies being a total pain, this was a complete surprise. I got into the car feeling very relaxed and ready to enjoy our tour. It was fun, the sat nav worked really well, I missed one turning but that was my fault and it wasn't even a problem.The commentary was entertaining, my kids listened intently. I'm a regular visitor to central London, i live in London but this trip still felt brand new and it was exciting.

Went on the trip or rather a trek around the London tourist areas which is sometimes not accessible by cars. A great way to see London in an open top car when you can tour at your own leisure.
We have 2 cars among the group and keeping up with each other was not a problem.
The sat nav directing us was very proactive. We took a wrong turning and it got us back on the track. The cars were easy to drive.
I would certainly do this again.
