    • It was a pleasant trip, although the traffic waes horrendous. We spent more time at red lights and in slow traffic but altogether it allowed us to see London.

      Richard Yankow, United States, 05/Jun/2018
    • 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.
