London is a functioning capital city and therefore political events, demonstrations and celebrations can disrupt the route at any time, especially during summer and at weekends. While every effort is made to ensure a smooth and frequent service there may be delays, reduced frequency and route alternations due to traffic and road closures.

Great tour, takes you all around London. Allow plenty of time as London traffic can be super busy. Audio was very helpful. Would recommend to anyone visiting London....Michael Davis, New Zealand, 25/May/2018
Great tour , great way to see London...Noel Conway, Canada, 25/May/2018
It would be better to have one bus which completes all the tours with an actual person to give the information as the monuments are passed, the recorded version did not always complete and was very vaigue
Ear buds didn’t work in my hubby’s ears, a live person describing things would have been nicer. The way home on the green route was problematic.
