What You Can Expect

London Vintage Bus Tour with Afternoon Tea

London Vintage Bus Tour with Afternoon Tea

Step on to your vintage double-decker bus in central London, and have your camera ready as you start your bus, river and afternoon tea tour in England’s history-steeped capital.

From the comfort of your bus, gaze out at top London attractions such as Nelson's Column, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, and learn the stories and secrets of the landmarks courtesy of the onboard commentary.

Head for the Thames River, and stop for photos at the Tower of London. Hear how this famous fortress has a dark history as a place of imprisonment, mystery and execution. Learn how it houses the priceless Crown Jewels, and glimpse the colourfully dressed Beefeater guards who patrol it.

Stroll along the riverside and board a Thames River sightseeing boat for your cruise to Westminster. Find a spot on deck or inside the comfortable saloon, and listen to the audio commentary to learn about the passing sights. Drift past Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and beneath London Bridge, and soak up stellar views of the iconic London Eye observation wheel.

As you cruise, enjoy an afternoon tea teamed with a glass of Champagne. Savor traditional British scones served with clotted cream and jam, and sip a cup of tea, too.

Return to land, and finish with a drop-off at the start point.

A great afternoon out. I would have liked the river trip to be longer, but it has inspired me to do something similar again. Afternoon tea was superb.

Our tour guide Frank was so wonderful he might have ruined tour guides for me forever. It was fantasic. He took us though all the sites and was a fountain of information. He also made sure everyone was able to get back to their hotel. This was a wonderful tour and the highlight of our trip!

Very nice tour. Disappointed that we didn't have tea as Kensington Palace as originally booked. Didn't really like the hotel tea, although it was a delicious spread and gluten free as requested, I would have preferred something more homely and cosy like the Palace.
