Not the companies fault, but the route is so slow that we bailed out or we would have lost a day just sat looking at the tops of buildings.

We had such a fun day with Graham (our tour guide) and Nick (our bus driver). Both are incredibly friendly and have a great sense of humour. We went on the Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath tour, and would definitely recommend it to anyone considering a day trip out of London.

We wanted a hop on, hop off tour to tell us about London, we had children, tweens, senior and adults who weren't up on London's history. And after riding most of one of them, we still aren't. They played music instead of commentary most of the trip. We spent 20 minutes around the London Tower (just traffic) they said less... More

Day tour with a great guide in possession of plenty of humor, aka "Graham" and the equally charming bus driver "Nick". Family had a very good day. Is it hectic? yes of course with 3 items on the agenda that each deserves more time but if you only have a day this is highly recommended. We will be back &... More

So I booked both the day tour of Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Bath; and also the day hop on hop off pass. No problems with their day tours but the hop on hop off experience was awful! BEWARE of the hop on hop off day pass. This is the most awful bus tour I have ever been on in a... More

My wife and I enjoyed the tour of London. We started early on a bus and visited a few sites around the city, then spent time at the Tower of London. From there, we took a boat ride on the Thames to the London Eye. The tour was fast-paced and we did not spend much time in any one place,... More

Bruce our Tour Guide is Ace!! :) I have been to London many times but this was my first time doing the actual tour. Although it was a 2hr power walk around, we definitely enjoyed the free walking tour with our Ticket - It was all worth it. :)

Staying in Pimlico

Neighborhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighborhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
