Our guide was excellent. Friendly, approachable, could answer any question. I learned and saw so much. I adore the history. She was concerned and very professional for our safety in remaining together. The bus driver was very adept at handling traffic and parking. Even tho London is preparing for the Queen's 70th year of rule and some things were closed to us, our guide gave us every opportunity to see what was available. I enjoyed the 'bonus' of walking thru St James park. The 1/2 hour boat cruise down the Thames was really special.There was plenty of time to see the stops we had advance tickets for. I ended my tour with the fantastic London Eye. The day's experience was a great way for me to be introduced to this great city. I will return to explore more!

My tour was canceled due to 'bad weather' and 'less numbers' on the day scheduled. Tour operator sent me email message and gave a phone call to inform. Not only that, they were very courteous and helpful in providing options for alternate tours on the same day AND on next possible day. Remaining difference amount was refunded without any hassle.

A very good overview for first-time visitors to London. The only drawback is a personal nit - there were approximately 50 persons on the tour, and with that you had 50 different expectations and levels of energy. I’m not a huge fan of large group tours, but that’s not the fault of the company or guide. If you’re good with a bus tour around town with good, long stops at St. Paul’s Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London, this is for you.if not, book something smaller and more personal. The boat tour down the Thames at the end was great. Terrific narrator.

Driving quickly by the major sights with the tour guide pointing them from inside a bus out is hardly a way to experience London. We did not see the changing of the guard or the guards at all as promised. Our cream tea consisted of four scones, one half glass of cheap champagne, and tea. We were dropped off and let go at Harrods and had no idea what was going on. Were we supposed to pay for our tea? Could we have ordered something more elaborate? The tour guide just dropped us off and left us there. This was an overpaid " extra" which we did not enjoy. We did stop off at St. Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London. We enjoyed that. The Thames River ride was another overpaid extravagance where where landmarks were pointed out, but we did not really experience.

Yeoman guard Scott Kelly gave us an amazing guided tour, most informative and hugely enjoyable. My Dad and I enjoyed the whole experience of the Tower, including the spectacular crown jewels. A great day out.

The tour guide Eldie did a very good job. She assisted us very well in the duration of the tour. She is an asset to the company.
The driver partner for the tour to Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and the bath on October 29,2021 did an excellent and safe driving for all of us.

This was a great tour which highlighted many of the major sight sin London. We met at 7:45 AM and it ended at 4pm so make sure you set aside the full day for it. Our tour guide Frank was informative and had a great sense of humor. He made us feel very welcome. We were very lucky to have a small tour that day so he was able to give each person a lot of attention and answered all questions. He was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend the tour!

We only had 2 days in London and wanted our 9 year old to see as much as possible. It was a long day. Our tour guide John was extremely knowledgeable and you can tell he loves his job. John was patient with our son, who had many questions. John answered every question and on the occasion he didn't know an answer he found it and came back to let him know. He invited our son to assist him in leading the group. As a whole it was a wonderful experience.

This is a full London experience tour that gives you a taste of a little of everything. Our tour guide was Carol and she was amazing. It was very crowded and she was able to maneuver through the crowds. Her knowledge was amazing too. We truly loved this tour. And also compliments to the organization at the pick up location too esp to Cameron who is a master at calming everyone down and giving great instructions!

John was a knowledgeable and friendly guide. It is quite clear history is his passion. We would have paid a lot of money to have a private tour day with John!!! So much to see and learn. John was wonderful with our precocious and knowledge hungry 9 year old, answering EVERY question. Many thanks to John for a day well spent!!!!!
