The 1/2 day tour was well organized and we enjoyed the guides knowledge of London and the two off-bus stops. In general, we enjoyed the afternoon. However, we were not sure the cost was in line with our expectations. Perhaps a full days tour would have been better, but then again that was an additional cost.
Cheaper to do on own.
This tour was great. The guide, Ross, really knew what he was talking about (or at least made it sound like he did!) and had tons of interesting and unique stories. As an American, I was unfamiliar with nearly everything he told us about, which was excellent. I wish he'd gone into a little more detail on a few things just because I was completely unfamiliar (a lot of the stories were things that Londoners or Brits in general knew), but it's also understandable because I seemed to be the only one that didn't know. Fabulous tour, great guide, I'd totally recommend it to anyone visiting London.
The tour was so hurried. The guide was always ahead of the group. It was hard to keep up. Not enough time to see everything.
Disappointed in this tour...when I originally purchased the tour in I believe December last year it stated that a short cruise was included... which was what was paid for, one adult and one senior. Only upon arriving on the day of the tour were we advised that it no longer included the river cruise (as of March!). Rather upsetting after other tours previously taken being excellent.
We enjoyed Trevor our tour guide very much. The coach was very comfortable. We wished it was longer and included the river cruise.
I recommend this tour!
Great tour, but it was a very crowded trip and a difficult itinerary. Line to see crown jewels was about 45 minutes, so it was not reall a "skip the lines" experience. St. Paul's cathedral was really well done and informative.
Had a good time, loved the river cruise
Our guide, Thomas, was delightful. I don't call 11 riders a small group. We found ourselves riding on walkways crowded with many pedestrians, which got very stressful. This distracted from seeing the "sights" between stops.
Doing what: Small-Group River Thames Bike Tour
It was great
Our guide was very knowledgeable in the history of the Tower of London, St. Paul's and other Landmarks in London. Great to meet other people from around the world on the tour.
The guide was very entertaining and the tour is good if you are short on time, and mainly intrested in seeing the Crown Jewels, but we were disappointed as both St Pauls and the Tower of London deserve more time to explore. The tour might be better done in the morning so you can linger on for a more thorough look around.
The cruise however from the Tower up to Westminster was a corker! While not offically part of the cruise the crew provide a very entertaining commentary and point out all the points of interest along the way.
