Lets start with the Harry Potter studio tour. The booking system was simple and we arrived to the pickup point where we were greeted with a friendly smile. The HP themed double decker bus was fun, and we were promised some Harry Potter delight on the bus! Sadly, this was Harry Potter and the philosophers stone (and some confusion to... More

My partner and I booked this as we wanted a thorough tour of London. We had an absolutely lovely tour guide Tony (Antonio) who was extremely informative and helpful. We would definitely recommend this tour however make sure you get plenty of rest the night before as it is a long day!

They are liars, They don't give you what they advertise. Don't waste your time or money. Very bad customer service, our tour guide was rude and had a bad attitude. We were a party of six and we will never use Golden Tours again or recommend to anyone.

First of all, Golden Tours advertises that a logo Harry Potter bus will take guests to the Studio Tour. This was one of the reasons we booked! We wanted a full Harry Potter experience starting at our transportation so we were extremely disappointed in the plain blue bus we were transported in. On top of this, they only had 1... More

Traveled solo on march 2017 Leeds/Dover/Canterbury A decent tour. Comfortable bus ride to all the locations. Leeds was beautiful, greeted with meed and had about 1.5 hours to explore the castle and grounds independently. Dover was disappointingly more of a pit stop, and we did not go to the cliffs but rather was at the beach looking up at the... More

This was a door to door tour up to the HP Studio Tour. Have done it before by train which is more difficult in my opinion. Centrally located near Victoria Station takes you to their front door. Awesome

It was a memorable one day trip for us coming from Canada. The pickup from the hotel was timely by a very responsible polite gentleman; however, the lining up process at the station requires bit discipline as we were initially directed to the tour heading to Bath. Anyway, the trip was excellent, the guide, Ruth was extremely knowledgeable about the... More

Quote from the email we received together with the ticket for this trip: "A luxury bus ride with air conditioning". Really? For two whole hours, we sat in a stuffy bus without air conditioning and air. Our repeated requests to the driver encountered: "There is a problem with the air conditioning system" Before we returned to London, at Stonehenge parking... More

For an overview of London and all the major sights in one day, you can’t go wrong with this tour. Our guide Morten was wonderful and is clearly passionate about sharing his love of London with visitors. I have done similar tours in the past but got new insights and information on this tour. A highlight was getting to meet... More

Ordered tickets for my daughters 4th birthday and in the small print told you have to go to Madame Tussaud's to collect the tickets. So should really be large print. Anyway then have to wait in the queue for 1 hour to pick up the tickets and the people on the door were so unhelpful. Thanks for ruining my daughters... More

goldentoursUK, Guest Relations Manager at Golden Tours, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry to read of the delays you encountered. In bold and large letters, on all customers tickets, when purchasing the Combination Ticket, including the 4 attractions it clearly states for all customers to visit Madame Tussaud's first to collect all tickets. This is a specification from the suppliers and not ourselves. If you... More

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
