Great tour! The guide was very entertaining, knowledgeable, and friendly! This tour takes you through the main tourist sites in central London, without spending too much time at any one place. It is a great way to get an introduction to the city, and allows you to make note of what you'd like to see again on your own. The boat ride on the Thames was a nice plus. The best part of the tour was the changing of the guard, as our tour guide new exactly where we needed to be, and when, to get the most out of the event. I'd also recommend you bring a jacket as it can get chilly on top the bus, and I took this tour during early July. If you can, try to be one of the first people to get on the bus so you can pick the best seats, usually in the very front covered, or back of the bus. HIghly recommended!

The bus tour was fantastic. We were 40 min late got lost on the way they waited for us and said We wouldn't lead without you!
The bus was a classic double decker. The tour guide Nick was great.mhe was animated, funny and knowledgable. We weaved in and out of London traffic, saw the changing of the guard and many other interesting sites along the way.
I would recommend this to my friends and family.

We liked the tour and the stops at Westminster, the Thames River cruise, St James Palace, the changing of the guards there and the walk with the guards to Buckingham Palace. Nick, our guide, was excellent, giving us the extraordinary English history in a colorful manner. The 'free lunch' was not free, as one of our party is allergic to fish, we changed one item on the menu and were charged full price, even though the non-fish choice was less expensive! Yes, we would take another tour with this company.

A wonderful experience, even the dull weather didn't spoil our trip. The courier was polite very organised and with her knowledge we had possibly the best view of the guards and band as the front of Buckingham palace is always crowded, we all managed to get some lovely photos.
Finishing at Harrods we enjoyed being pampered with a wonderful lunch.
Thank you all so much.

The tour could have used a little more information on the pickup point with some signs where and which gate the bus would be leaving from. No information was available in the terminal and we really had to walk throughout the terminal several times before stumbling upon the correct location of departure. Overall a fast paced city tour that really crams a lot into the short allotted time frame. This still, was a pretty good value for the amount of sights visited and the commentary added by a well educated guide.

This was my first tour in London and finding Victoria Coach station was a challenge. The directions from the subway/tube station was not clear and the signage along the roads not at every intersection. Maybe a different pickup location would be better. The tour itself was informative and loved hopping on and off the bus to see Westminster Abbey and the changing of the guards at Buckingham palace. Thoroughly enjoyed having lunch at Harrods after the tour. Our tour guide was energetic and very pleasant.

Everything was wonderful on this trip except the lunch at Harrod's (Italian Restaurant) which was a complete disaster. The meal took about 3 hours to complete. It took about 30 min. to get a glass of water and we left before coffee. I would recommend never to use them again.

Poorly organized and very chaotic at bus station. Bus tour ok and guide was informative. Fish and chip meal - very rude and unhelpful pub staff and food was just ok.
