    Voucher information: Sorry, but we will need you to print a paper version of your booking voucher (we're working on changing this). At this time no refund can be given for customers without a printed copy of their voucher.

    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.

    The confirmation voucher includes the local activity operator's contact details. They're a nice bunch, and will happily answer any logistical questions you may have. Please give them a call at least 24 hours before your organised activity to reconfirm.

    • 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

      Noel Conway, Canada, 25/May/2018
    • Experience was great, we had my step dad who was still recovering from 12hr time Difference jet lag. My husband who had a poor leg. Was perfect to get around. I would recommend 2 days, because there is so much to see and do.

      Olive Hepi, United Kingdom, 04/Jul/2019
    • Great service, easy pickup points and access to all the best tourist sights.

      Phillip Cleveland, Australia, 03/Jun/2019
    • Good, really well thought out routes. Only slight drawback: they have fewer buses, so waiting at bus-stops can take a little while.
      commentary did not always work (problems with the audio)
