    It was a fast paced day and packed heaps in. A great overview of the city and major sights, especially if you have limited time. Karen, our guide, was excellent. She had a great mix of historical and contemporary knowledge about the city. Her delivery was excellent. She also managed well some unexpected challenges with great flexibility while still delivering on the trip's deliverables. Thank you for a great day.

    I booked the “Welcome to Paris Day Trip From London Via Train” - so the standard package, but it was just enough. Anna is amazing - she gets 10 STARS - I enjoyed our day. Would def book again! I was a solo traveler on this tour, so don’t let that shy you away from joining because you are bound to connect with someone even if you come alone.

    The only downside, is that we had a 1 hour train delay and an additional hour delay due to a passenger medical emergency, but that had nothing to do with the tour itself. However, it lead to not that much time exploring Paris. I think the company mentioned refunding the train ticket from LDN to PAR to make up for that, which is awesome (still have to check to make sure it’ll happen tho).

    In addition, the only reason I gave it 4 stars, was due to the initial meet point not being clear at the cafe. Basically everyone wasn’t sure where our group guide was - but then a person in a bright flashy vest with the company’s name came to pass our tickets out. I think for future tours, they should place in the write up to look for a bright vest with “Premium Tours” on it. Also, when I was in Paris there was a small hiccup of the time we needed to get back. Anna said the correct time, but the company called to see where we were and made it seem like we were going to get left, so me and the person I met on the trip were running in Paris to make it back to the bus. Lol so in the end we were the first on the bus and had like 20 mins we could have finished our food. But that still makes for a great day in Paris - it added a thrill!

    It was a nice trip. We liked the comment very much. We had the last boat back, so we saw the bridges in the dark with the lights, that was nice.

    It was a wonderful tour that was informative. My fiancé and I both learned so much we didn’t know about Jack the Ripper. Andre Price was an amazing guide and he knew so much about Jack. He was very engaging and knowledgeable, with 30 years experience as a Ripperologist.

    I liked it. Bright London in the evening is amazing . I booked tickets in advance , we were 15minutes later and it wasn’t a problem. For my teens it was boring a bit

    This is the best tour you can find to see London with an expert! Bryan listened to our interests and made this an incredible experience - book list items checked off! Definitely NOT the average tour, but one that's personalized and very special because Bryan knows so much. And, he gives you the extra special treatment. A truly fantastic experience. I highly recommend this. (My husband never likes sightseeing, and he hasn't stopped talking about how great this was! Now you know it's special.)

    Our tour guide, Stephanie, was outstanding. She had a thorough knowledge of the museum itself as well as the artwork and the history of the artwork and artists. She is very pleasant and willing as well as able to answer all of our questions. Outstanding!!

    Although initially sceptical about purchasing via a third party, I researched the reviews. I ignored the trivial ones and those written by people with an obvious axe to grind.

    I was a little nervous that no one would meet me at the meeting point having paid a not insignificant amount of money.

    Rob, our guide was there as promised ahead time. Knowledgeable and experienced.

    At the time of booking and comparing against the standard ticket prices I was sceptical if it’d be worth the cost but now looking back; it was an amazing tour and worth every penny.

    Having the opportunity to look around the Tower and the Crown Jewels at our own pace and without the pressure of the crowds of the general public was a real treat.

    Our guide was a font of knowledge and I was grateful for his guidance rather than having to listen to an audio guide.

    I’d highly recommend this company and tour.

    Very informative. Down the group leader was a fun person. The boat cruise was very nice and also entertaining. Would recommend it for anyone visiting London

    Max was extremely informative and was very pleasant to spend the time with. Easy and pleasant delivery and did not rush us at any point. He seemed to have a good relationship at each stop as well.

    Great experience! Loved the bus tour and boat ride. We took the tour on our first day to get an overview of the city and it was the perfect easy to get oriented. Highly recommend!

    We were fortunate to visit on a clear sunny day and as expected the views were fantastic. However, we were not offered a guide so anyone unfamiliar with London wouldn’t have known what they were looking at. Although you’re told you can stay as long as you like, it’s a relatively small area and not many places to sit so we left after an hour and a half. We’re glad we went but like most things in London it was pricy so wouldn’t go again.

    Unfortunately due to many roads being closed we were taking on a different tour however despite traffic jams etc they did a wonderful tour a little slower but still saw lots of the wonderful city and very good commentary.
