Great way to get around London! Much better having a live person telling us what we were seeing versus the other tours with pre-recorded information. Lewis and Emma were the best!

Spoilt for choice with 4 routes. Some waiting around but to be expected. Ian made the tour really interesting with a real general knowledge of London.

We had Jojo as our commentary and she was wonderful. The bus tour covered all the scenic spots and with a few days in town, I can safely say I got to see majority of everything. Highly recommended if you're short on time.

Lewis was so entertaining and knowledgeable that we didn’t got off at our intended stop, so our visit to London Tower will have to wait for another day.

Taking the last bus on Tuesday, being the only family on the bus, Lewis still made it a very exciting and unforgettable experience for our children educating us on London’s history and landmarks. You are awesome Lewis! Thank you🙏🏻More

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw

I think weekends are better because in weekdays streets are crowded by people going to and from work and school buses.
