    Was quite hungry, as this was a very light lunch. I helped the kids eat their food which helped the hunger pains. Food was in small portions and well presented and very tasty. We had to pay for extra drinks such as water and teas etc. The bus is a little hot to begin with but the air con kicks in when on the move. It was a fabulous way to see London and the interior looked lovely and comfortable, even the toilet was nice . I would recommend booking on a special occasion. The staff member serving was very hospitable and did an excellent job juggling all the customers onboard.

Our guide Nigel was informative and convivial. He showed considerable patience with the incessant delays for selfies by some of our group. My flight had arrived late so I did not have time to drop my pack at my hotel before meeting the tour. Nigel volunteered to convince a friendly shopkeeper to keep it thus allowing me freedom to enjoy the walk. Walking with a guide is much preferable to zooming about on the busses.

Charlotte was super talented tour guide, my boys 18 and 14 totally enjoyed the tour. We could have done this by ourself but worth with tour guide for efficiency. However our price is higher than others. Nevertheless highly recommended. Geoff and staffs are friendly and Charlotte now it all, especially the parliament. Thank you

Very nice visit to London, super guide Nigel, explains very well

Superb visit, with a great guide. The small group visit was very pleasant, very very very nice discovery of London on foot. Too bad we could not visit popular areas like Soho or other street known for shopping.
