Mick was an excellent Tour guide. Knowledgable, professional and friendly. We saw all of the main places with well decorated lights.

Our guide Andrew was right on time and was so friendly and professional. He took us to all the main streets and several​ others. We saw London lights at night from the bridge as well as beautiful neighborhood s. It was a splurge for us but well worth it.

The tour of holiday lights was a wonderful way to spend my first night in London after a long journey from the States. Andrew was extremely personable, well versed in the history of the neighborhoods, and he went the extra mile to show me London’s fantastic holiday lights. The tour was both festive and cultural!

I loved this tour. My guide was amazing, took me all over London and parked in great places so we could hop out and take photos. It was very enjoyable and so festive. I highly recommend this tour.

Worst tour by far. Company texted three times wanting to make changes. You are sitting in a regular uncomfortable cab with a glass window between you and the driver, so it's next to impossible to hear what he's saying and you feel like you are in jail. Very horrific tour.

This was one of my favorite tours. The lights were very pretty, of course, but our guide whose name I think was Colin was so good. He took us to some out of the way places and was an excellent guide. He knew a lot about the history of some of the various stops. Highly recommend this tour.

Our driver arrived on time, was a delight to work with and we were pleasantly surprised by the history of England, London, and various neighborhoods! So it was more than just looking at lights! He was most knowledgeable and gave us a great tour! The time went fast, and he added to the tour to personalize it some for my husband, once he found out he was retired military! I would highly recommend this tour, and Andrew as your driver!
