Well organised tour, perfect way to see the sights from the top of a double decker bus! It was great to hop on and off the bus to see the sights. The tour guide told various stories on and off the bus and on the river cruise on the Thames: a fascinating way to see London - Westminster, bridges galore, buildings old and new. Fantastic. Buckingham Palace was a highlight - the architecture, the paintings, the ceilings, the carpets, the opportunity to walk through the royal rooms, seeing gifts presented to The Queen during her reign. Highly recommend this tour.

Bus experience was awesome. Kevin drove that big bus like it was a mini-car and Mark ? our Scottish guide provided everything we wanted/needed to know about London !

We had a fantastic tour. Excellent tour of the sights of London with a brilliant tour guide. Getting to see the Changing of the Guard was fun and carried out with military procession enabling us to witness three different aspects of it. Couldn't quite believe how lovely the boat was for the river cruise - after which we were transferred to Buckingham Palace and ushered straight to the entrance effortlessly - we then enjoyed a visit to the State Rooms. Really enjoyed the whole tour experience and excellent value for money. Special thanks to our guide.

Brilliant trip, well worth the money.

One point to be improved .......... instructions told us to go to Bay 0 .......... we had to go to Bay 19
All very confusing early in the morning. Had to ask numerous people where to go to get the bus before being directed to Bay 19! very stressful way to start the day .......... Please get tour operator to improve this detail, we were not the only people asking where had to go!

Great tour by our guide Alan. He was witty and knowledgeable. The nice thing about this tour is that it was early, and you really avoid the crowds. Once the day progressed, you could see the masses of people out trying to see the same things we visited earlier. The Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace was nice to see.

It was a very good tour and the guide was very entertaining. The traffic in the city was quite heavy due to the construction everywhere, but as the transporters aren't online yet there is little choice in traffic. I would recommend the tour.

Excellent tour! Covered lots of sites. Our guide was very knowledgeable! The only thing I didn't like was being rushed into Buckingham Palace at the end of the tour. It was a half day tour and it would have been nice to have just received the passes and then gone in after some lunch!

This tour didn't start too but as the day went along things improved significantly, our guide was pretty good giving us interesting tidbits along the way. The cruise was wonderful and Buckingham Palace was amazing.

The buckingham palace part of the tour was great. But I don't think the bus tour of the city and the river Thames ride was very good. Suggest adding in a visit to see the London bridge at the same time since we stopped for 30 minutes close by.

The tour was amazing once you got on the vintage bus at the Victoria Coach Station. It was a bit confusing about which queue was for which tour.
But the guide managed to sort it through.

Tou is Ok however there is too much to do to force visitors to rush during the morning in order to reach the Buckingham Palace at noon.

Guide on bus knowledgable and able to get us to good spots for photo shoot of troop marching. However pace very fast and hard for some to keep up. No mention of having to walk anywhere let alone twice off the bus. Also no mention that when having entered Buckingham Palace that we were then on our own to get home. 2 hour unexpected walk or costly cab ride.

the tour was good except for the Buckingham palace changing of the guard time. Our guide was difficult to understand his English, but he had us in front of the gate, and then had us move with the marching band crowd to march with the band. My husband was pushed to the ground, scraped his fingers bloody, hand, scraped the camera lense and his glasses all ruined. The crowd was overwhelming and we did not get to see the changing of the guard or the marching, as too many people were there and I could not see anything. this was not good of our guide to have us do this. Buckingham palace was incredible, but it was raining and we could not see the gardens. Also the Muse was not included in our tour, cost extra and we were not happy with that

The tour was good except the outline of tour changed and we were told we had to wait 3 hours from completion of tour at 11.30am to 2.30pm to go into the Buckingham Palace section of tour. Very disappointing as I was jetlagged and could no wait that long so missed out on this section that I was really looking forward to. The main reason I booked was that it was a morning tour and I would have afternoon to do my own thing.
