Nice tour bus by night
Lane_N, Aug 2022
Beautiful view of the center of the city, the guide was really passionate and funny. We had a great time!
A good intro to London
Chris_C, Jul 2022
Mattmew was a great host! He described all of the major sites, while being funny and informative. It’s a fast tour, but gives you a good idea of what areas in London you’d like to visit and the distance between them. We went on the tour our first night in London and it was perfect; just what we expected. We would recommend it.
London by night
Angela_F, Jul 2022
It was a shaky start when all passengers had to swap to another bus due to a problem with the first one, and the uncomfortable ensuing situation when people sat in the wrong seats (despite being told to sit in the same seats) upsetting a passenger who became verbally aggressive. The driver and other members of staff became involved and the situation got quite heated to the point that the driver wanted the passenger removed. However his colleagues didn’t back him up which they should have done. Eventually it settled down and the tour itself was excellent as was Matthew the guide - he was very informative! Would thoroughly recommend.
Nice evening activity...
MaudaMonger, Jul 2022
Tour was great, Dominic our guide was funny and informative. Started at 8pm...however it wasn't really dark.. but at the end we got a beautiful sunset. So that made it worth it. Take the tour, it's a great way to spend the evening.
Graham was awesome.
lawrenceholme, Jul 2022
Graham our guide was the best….we learned a lot about numerous famous historic sites in London…we saw a lot of places, the night was perfect. I’m really glad we did this tour our first night in the city.
Great tour for the money.
Susan_B, Jul 2022
This was a great tour for the money. London traffic is crazy so taking the tour was an efficient way to see many sites. Our guide was in person and he was very good, offering historical facts and fun information about London and the surrounding area. Worth the price of the tour.
Well worth it
Just_D, Jun 2022
We enjoyed getting a sense of where major sights were before staring out on our own. We were there during the Jubilee so some streets were closed but our driver did a good job of getting through the route. For that reason it was a bit difficult to hear the commentary as the ear plugs were not in use.
Too fast
Laurie_T, Jun 2022
I realize the bus has to go the speed limit but there wasn’t even enough time to take pictures - the tour was very fast. By the time we knew what he was talking about we were already past it. He also inserted a lot of his own personal opinions about things we were looking at which to me was very negative. Maybe with another guide the experience would have been better.
Loved seeing all the...
Steve_N, Jun 2022
Loved seeing all the beautiful architecture that London possesses. However, we were unable to hear the narration of the tour because of equipment issues. But, it was a beautiful evening and a nice experience.
Good night out siteseeing
Sibongile_Z, May 2022
Great and kind host. Tour was quick and straight to the point. Would have liked to see a bit more outside of the common areas though hence the 4 and not 5 star rating
Witty. Fast. Fun overview of London.
Michael_P, May 2022
Fun. Fast. Witty tour of all the sights you want to see in London. A great way to start your visit. Dominic, our guide, was quite funny.
Still waiting for a full refund!
Jannette_T, Apr 2022
To say that I am disappointed at what transpired is an understatement. My night tour was to start at 8pm. I called and sent a message at 7pm about the original location which had been shut because of a peaceful protest. I was told to wait elsewhere and I did. Another family also was informed the same. They called back again at 7:53 to see if the location was back to the original but they were also instructed to stay. We waited until 8:20 and when I called again I was told I wasn’t in the correct location! This is not fair at all. I also asked the man I spoke to for his supervisors name but he played mute and wouldn’t tell me. He kept putting me on hold even after I said my Phone was low on battery and was going to die. I expect a FULL refund!

Great facts about London that most people don’t know. I learned on this tour.
Dielda_R, Mar 2022
The guide was great! He knew the history of London and was funny too. He made the tour come to life for us. He gave us several facts that we had no clue about. Great tour and I would recommend to everyone.
Lovely to see London lit up!
Lorraine_S, Mar 2022
What a great tour. Dominic was our guide and very entertaining! Was lovely to see London lit up. Would definitely recommend.
Bus never showed and company wouldn’t refund me
Cameron_P, Mar 2022
We bought our tickets and showed up to the designated meeting spot outlined on the TripAdvisor webpage. The bus never showed. I tried calling the hotline number and they were closed for the evening already. Never got refunded either. Felt like a scam. Can’t recommend.
Wonderful guide.
Marian_H, Sep 2021
Great guide. Excellent information. I felt nauseas and the guide and driver were very understanding helping me.
Great tour
Fran_J, Aug 2021
Very interesting tour, our guide James was quite remarkable with his knowledge of the history. Would recommend 👍🏻
Loved it. Well worth it.
Geeta_P, Aug 2021
Loved it. Love the nightlights and tour guild was genuine and well informed with a sense of humour. Good value for Money. Was just the right time of day to see London all lit up.
Athena_S, Aug 2021
It was a wonderful way to see London. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I went on Thursday 12/08/2021 @ 8pm and the tour guide and driver were amazing. They made it so social. I went with my 2 children. 8&11 and neither were bored or irritated. We just have a lovely evening. Thank you.
A very enjoyable time
Emma_D, Jul 2021
