Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Independent Day Trip to London from Paris including Thames River Cruise. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
I will definitely use Viator again. The trip went very smooth. There was a rep at the train station in Paris to give us our tickets, and a rep that met us immediately in London to give us our map of London and addition tickets for the boat ride etc.
All in all, a good value and everything worked well, though made for a really really long day. No matter how hard you try, there is just not a way to see everything you want to in London in one day, so just pick a few spots/sights to see and enjoy the time you are there. The train ride was really cool for the kiddos.
Good day train trip was great found the bus tour seemed to go around the same area but on the opposite side of the road perhaps The Red Bus tour may have been better.
I do not recommend.....too costly for what we were given... Long bus tour with very few tourist attractions. Tour did not include free pass to the attractions... On the bus for 3 to 4 hours and still had not made it tot he Thames river cruise. There could have been hidden fees, just did not accept additional offers to additional tourist attractions..........The day was bad due to rain. Do not feel that we got our money worth.....
Plan to use this trip for the Eurostar tickets only. The hop-on/hop-off bus was not very helpful. Getting back to the train station was difficult for us first-timers in London. Lucky, we navigated the Underground to get back. We also JUST missed a nightmare train cancellation due to weather by arriving very early at the station. We managed to take an earlier train and the original train back was cancelled. The other people on our tour were likely stranded in London. Viator should have been in contact by cell for any possible delays with the train. We were very, very close to having to stay the night in London and merely lucked out with being there early.
This was the worse experience dealing with this company. Stay away from them. They ruined our trip.
Worse experience and because of this company our trip was a disaster.
