My parents and I took The English Bus Tour for Stratford-Upon-Avon, Oxford and Cotswolds last Sunday. Andrew was our guide and he was very entertaining and provided a lot of interesting facts along the way. We loved the fact that there were walking tours for pretty much each stop and we were given ample amount of time to explore each... More

My mom and I went on the Oxford, Cotswolds and Stratford-upon-Avon tour. Andrew was our guide and he was terrific and gave us great insights into the places we were visiting and was very funny. He was also tremendously considerate of all of the passengers and very patient with my mom who was a slow walker along the route. Highly... More

My family of four just spent a day with Collin visiting Bath, Stonehenge, and a delightfully surprising secret place. Collin picked us up promptly at 8:45 and sixteen of us headed out of London in a comfortable van. Collin pointed out many things of interest on our way to Bath. The size of the van allowed him to drive through... More

My wife and I had Colin as our guide today, and he was awesome! This was the perfect, ideal (and small!) tour outside of London. It was great having the small group and smaller bus, and thus able to drive around the streets of Bath (as well as the secret location, which was pretty cool too!) The tour didn't feel... More

I went with my parents at the beginning of August. Andy was our driver. We stopped, first, at the secret place, which happened to be amazing! Then, we went to Bath, then to Stonehenge (and the English countryside happened to be pretty fascinating as well!) All in all, it was quite the journey, but I am glad I went, it... More

From the minute we were picked up promptly at 8:45 until our drop offs at the end of our fun , busy and long days, both our personable and funny and brilliant guides... More

Doing this small bus tour was well worth the money. Andy was our fabulous driver and thanks to him we heard so much English history on our journey. In fact his knowledge was so vast we encourage him to go on 'The Chase'. The small bus and tour group allowed us to chat and and ask Andy questions along the... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
