The tour itself was good, on time, good bus and the locations were nice. But the tourist guide talked a lot, A LOT, which is usually not bad but at least half of what she said wasn and #39;t really related to the sites.
Our tour led by Leslie was approximately 4 hours long by motor coach. She did a nice job of acquainting us with the usual sights of London. The first stop was St. Paul's Cathedral with a multimedia audio tour included. We learned about the influence of Christopher Wren and this Cathedral which is not as ornate as others we have visited. We drove by the Bank of England and the other touristy sights of the city before stopping at the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels. The tour to see the Crown Jewels took so long because of the crowds that we were not able to see the rest of the Tower of London grounds which include Beauchamp Tower, Bloody Tower, Fusiliers' Museum, Royal Beasts, etc. without missing the coach for the return ride back. It was a good thing that we visited the Tower gift shop on another day because there was no time to shop on tour day. More time is needed to see the entire Tower of London grounds. Recommend this tour if you want to just get the highlights of London on a limited time schedule.
A well conducted tour with plenty of content and a knowledgeable tour guide, Lesley. Plenty of time at the amazing St Paul's Cathedral. Tour of London was spectacular allowing free time to explore on our own. A great tour to familiarize yourself with London.
This tour was great! The tour guide was soooo nice and friendly and knew what she was doing. She went into an in depth description of all of the places we visited as well as places we drove past. She was very kind and funny. The tour was overall great!
Great Tour, money well spent!
This tour was amazing!
Four hours is not enough time to see everything and take pictures. Between that and traffic it was too short.

I thought this was to be an overview of the city, but was disappointed in that. The tower was interesting, but soo very crowed.
This was a great tour - the only thing that would have made it better was if we could have visit the actual BRIDGE itself - you don't get to go on the bridge or the towers of the bridge - just the castle area that is connnected
Excellent!, Nick the tour guide was exceptional.

Very knowledgeable tour guide who was helpful and fun.
We were the only two on this particular tour and Allen was lovely. He walked us through Southbank and had some great stories. Great way to spend couple hours.
Excellent tour with an excellent guide.
Good tour. Not my favorite of the tours we booked, but interesting stories. My only suggestion would be for the guide to have some sort of sign for when the group is gathering. Would have made it easier to find him.
We mainly wanted to go to the Tower of London to see the crown jewels. We did that and St. Paul's cathedral. Not much lines so you could have done on your own.
This was a really fun tour! It was our 1st nigh in London so with it being a short walking tour we got to see a little of London. Our Tour guide was great
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!
