I visited London in May and was especially looking forward to a trip with London Spy Tours which according to the home page should take place at 24 May 11.30 am. Well, I was there. Where were you?

We boarded the spy tour yesterday lunchtime and were amazed to find we were the only passengers.However,this meant we had a "private"tour around the sights of London.The guide came and sat with us and his knowledge was remarkable.we loved being driven over Tower Bridge and the views from the top deck were great.Seeing the poppies at the Tower Of London was also a highlight. This tour was great value and deserves to succeed.

I boarded the Spy Tours Bus with my children yesterday. We were treated to a fantastic view of London, (Westminster, Downing Street, Tower of London, Financial square mile etc ) .We had a very enthusiastic guide, who had very good knowledge of spying and espionage as well historical facts about London; Guy Faulkes, Horatio Nelson to name but a few.

Fantastic views of London and great to have a Guide who is so enthusiastic! .

London Spy Tours is not like any other tour of London, it's interactive, engaging, thought provoking and thrilling! As you travel around London's famous sights, you are taken on a journey of London's history from old of tales of treason to recent headlines of London under threat with exciting insights of MI5 and MI6! If you're visiting London from further afield or a local in London looking for something to do, this tour shows you London with a twist, a twist that everyone secretly has an interest in! Great value and a great way to spend your valuable time in London!

I was extremely pleased with my tour! It was July 4th and my daughter and I were the center of attention on this tour! We got to wave an American flag on top of the bus. I LOVE British spy lore and this tour was SPECTACULAR! I got to see the actual MI5 and MI6 buildings! A dream come true! I highly recommend this tour. You will learn oodles!

Fun ! Fun ! Fun ! Blessed with a beautiful day, our gleaming red London bus took us on a tour filled with twists and turns to complement the spy theme. Our eloquent “M” shared his fascinating and informed anecdotes about espionage and double-crosses as he guided us through the streets of London and past many familiar, iconic landmarks. Indeed, the tour is excellent value as it offers insight into the hidden machinations of London’s hitherto secret world whilst also taking you close to London’s favourite sites such as Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, Downing Street, Horse Guards, MI5 and MI6, and many more. Children are welcome too, so families will enjoy the opportunity to "Bond" - see if you can help them break the Secret Code offered at the beginning of the journey. Treat yourself - book a trip at www.londonspytours.com and learn about double agents, dead drops, sleepers, poisoned umbrellas.

Really enjoyed this well organised, fun and fast moving experience of London! Even if you think you know London this is a great way of seeing it from a different viewpoint, especially if you have friends or family who might think they have seen it all before! The James Bond theme adds a new dimension to the more typical bus tour. A lot of fun and great thing to do with a group of friends, or a bunch of people who don't know each other well but need to "Bond" ...Sorry about that. Highly recommended

A fantastic tour with a group of friends. Always wanted to be James Bond! A great history of spies in London and taking in all the great sights of London as well was an added bonus. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting this great city.

What a treat! This wonderful spy themed tour was recommended by our hotel conciérge, and it didn't disappoint. We boarded an authentic open-topped red routemaster bus which transported us across Central London, around all the major London sights, including places I've not previously been familiar. We learnt all about Cold War espionage, famous film locations, secret war bunkers and much more! So many interesting - and sometimes surprising - facts on this tour + all of the bonus of London's incredible views. The tour guide was lovely, and played his role as a sort of secret spy, which only added to the enjoyment. I'd highly recommend. Plus there's spy themed games for kids so they don't get bored.
