Big Steve and Jackie (guide and driver respectively) were incredible guides for our group of students! Steve discussed bits of history throughout the tour and gave our students optimal picture-taking opportunities while we passed notable London landmarks. His English accent made the tour immensely entertaining as he also shared stories and connections between the history of London and of the U.S.A (where our group is from). I have no doubt the students enjoyed the trip as well as learned a bunch about things to do in London! Would highly recommend!

My elderly parents were visiting me in London and this fit the bill to get them to see the major sites without much walking. The stops were convenient. However, the recorded commentary was pretty terrible. It was goofy and lacked substance. To fill the gaps in descriptions on the commentary, the recording played a variety of British music. The music was fine, but there was no need for it. I'd have much rather learned more about London than listen to music. There is so much to say about London and I don't know why there was so much repetitive music.

We were so thankful for the bus around London especially after a ton of walking! Also the included Thames river cruise was really informative and we got amazing photos of historic sites from a different perspective. Only downside, which couldn't be helped, was the traffic in late afternoon and we couldn't get to St. Paul's in time.

Very informative and nice, but they need more buses and should go on later than just 5 pm, especially in the summer.
