What was I thinking? London in a day. Just to do the London Tower tour was about 2.5 hours Westminster Abbey another 2 hours and maybe longer if you did the audio tour. Then traffic in London. I still got fish n chips so all in all it was a good day
Too much traffic all around the city. The recording went in and out too much and no one showed us where to take the river cruise. We waljed ariung had to ask questions and were lost for a while, we missed the boat had to wait for an hour and could not partake in a stop at Buckingham palace.
Hop on, Hop Off - I wasn't aware of this package deal. I didn't like that the wait for the bus to come back around took 45 mins or more. The wait time for the bus took up the majority of the sightseeing time. The audio was off and I didn't know what I was looking at. The bus drivers kept pulling over for long breaks - stalling the tour.
It was my first time in London and this one day trip from Paris was a great introduction. If I were to do it again I would have had a more detailed map of London streets with me as I spent a lot of the time trying to find where the bus we had tickets for was as often it was blocks away from locations.
We went on this trip on March, it was very cold but really pretty, it is a good way to take a glimpse of London in 1 day. The traffic is crazy in London so I would recommend really choose your stops as you won't be able to see it all. The service of the company was great everybody helped us get the most of the experience.
DO NOT BUY! I WOULD GIVE 0 IF I COULD. GoldenTours Told we wouldnt do walks, that was a lie. Its like riding a city bus, no time for pics. NOT 1 GUIDE was helpful, 8 different "guides" directed us on wrong buses, we spend the whole day listening to people from GoldenTours that didnt know anything!
When we arrived at the train station in France, we were met by our contact. He was very nice but he spoke no English. We managed to get the necessary details, though. The train ride was very nice and comfortable. When we arrived in London, we were met by another contact. This gentleman was not very helpful. He was much more interested in selling us other tours while in London than he was in helping us plan our day. He showed us to the bus and he disappeared shortly thereafter never asking if we needed more help/information. We only stayed on the bus for a short time. There was so much traffic and deadlock due to various construction projects that we just sat there! My Wife and I got off the bus and never got back on. We walked just about everywhere. People on the streets were extremely nice and polite and pointed us in the right directions for various places we wanted to see. We took the Thames river cruise over to Big Ben, etc. and walked the rest of the way. We walked to Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, and everywhere in-between. Then we took the subway back to the train station and headed back to Paris. We walked a lot but we saw so much! We even had time to sit down at a pub and eat Fish and Chips. We had a great time!
The train ride was nice. Grab some snacks before you get on the train. One you get to London the traffic is terrible don't expect to see everything. You can't get around that fast. Plan what you want to see ahead of time. 3 or 4 major things is all you will get to see. You will not be able to take the bus around the second time.
This is THE BEST tour of our selection, all well arranged and we really enjoyed this trip...except one staff in LONDON who gave pass to us in St. Pancras station...all others are very nice. That staff is not at all good and cribbing about his dissatisfaction of job and looking at my wife as if he never seen a lady at all. Did not gave any good impression...however, trip was enjoyable. We just loved london and we will come back to London alone to spend more days. Our Euro Star journey is memorable.
