Absolutely fantastic!! Our tour guide, Jess was extremely entertaining and knowledgeable. I wish our history teachers were this much fun when I was in school. Our driver, Tony, was a magician! I'm still in awe of how he was able to get us in such tight spaces. James, our tour guide in training, was a great help in keeping all of Jess' people together! To learn while you laugh... Or laugh while you learn..What a great experience! We saw all the major landmarks and then some on this awesome tour! Highly recommend for first timers.

Excellent! Our guide was very informative and was able to get us close to the rehearsal of the House Cavalry for the Queen's birthday. Quite the site to see.

Great overall tour of the city. Did this tour on our first day of seven in London (first-time visitors) and loved it. Got us acclimated with the city and helped us get an idea of which sites we wanted to come back to and see in more detail, and which ones we could pass on making a second trip to. Well-organized and perfect for anyone looking to see all the main sites in London for a day.

Good way to see a lot in a little bit of time. Really enjoyed the guide, entertaining and engaging. Told us a little of interesting little tidbits of "off the beaten path" information. I would do it again. Good way to figure out where to go an what to see... if you have extra time.

Favorite tour we booked. Train station that it departed from was a bit sketchy, but the tour was fantastic! Moved along quickly and had almost constant narration. We took this the afternoon we landed, went straight from the airport. Was good way to keep ourselves awake without having to walk too much.

It was so much fun in a vintage bus. Many people were taking pictures of us as we drove by because of the bus. I would recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your trip so you have a nice overview of things you can go back to and spend more time on your own.

Changing of the guard was impressive, but jammed full of people.

It is always nice to have a commentated tour because you learn so much more than doing it all on your own.

Thames River cruise is a must. A city always looks different from the water.

Fun tour guides. This was a fun way to see the main attractions of London before going and exploring the town and sites. We did not see the changing of the guard, as it was too crowded when we arrived. We did see the new guard march in and the Royal Horse guard.

Great informational tour about London! It was confusing finding the bus at the station to start off, other than that it was great! The river cruise was short, like 15 minutes.

Best short tour ever! The tour guide knew all the short cuts to get us up close to the changing of the guards.

This tour just has to be done whenever you go to a new city. It is an overview of the city from above which is nice because so much of your time is spent under the city taking the tube.

Great tour! Awesome guide, highly recommend as an overview of London if youre short on time or just want to pick what you like best and explore it more...it ended at harrods which was not planned as a bonus and harrods in itself was amazing!

Wow! One of the best tours, our guide made everything easy for us. We enjoyed the Changing of the Guard Ceremony, we could not make it without the guide. It was so crowded but he took us there on time and we took nice pics.

The tour was great, very informative and inclusive. I think the Thames 5-10 min part could be excluded or increased in time.
