    • Great tour, highly recommended

      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 experience, covered all the highlights while giving us time to browse the areas we like

      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

      Amber Bailey, France, 20/Sep/2018
    • 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.

      Leah Richmond, Canada, 19/Sep/2018
    • All of the sites taking the time, Simon the actor, singer telling the stories of London
