Not 100% happy to be honest. There's no map from the website unless you get the app and that just drains the phone battery. We didn't get a map until we got on a bus. When I've been on other open top bus operators before, there was a rep on each stop but you don't get that with Golden Tours... More

We had a beautiful day out visiting Stonehenge, Oxford and Windsor Castle. the Guide Chris Saul was wonderful and full of knowledge. The only sad point of the day was the poor quality of lunch provided by Golden torus I am sure they can improve upon it.

Absolutely Rubbish - never use them 1. Initial wait for bus was over 25 minutes. 2. The tour route was not honored on the drivers whim? Kings cross route was missed out completely. 3. We were waiting for buses more then 15 minutes on several stops. 4. We got to the Piccadilly stop (bus stop S opposite water stones) at... More

Admittedly, I am not the greatest at directions but finding this place wasn't the easiest - even when we arrived at location 30 minutes early we went up and down and around and even called the tour operator but the help was in truth no help - get more signs folks we were late but thankful the bus had waited!...

from the collaborator on the street next to the bus stop to the live guide (Michelle) and driver, everyone was very friendly, helpful and nice.

Tour guide Saul and driver Darren made this tour amazing. Windsor Castle was astonishingly beautiful, Oxford is a must-visit if you're into Harry Potter, and Saul showed us a HP special that really made the trip worth it. Stonehenge was impressive, but I really love blackbirds, so spent much more time admiring the rooks, some of whom are comfortable enough... More

Our tour guide Richard was really helpful and very informative. I think that sometimes though to get on the bus can take a little time as they check things quite a bit!

Morton, our tour guide was fantastic! It would have been great to have Morton guide us through each place, especially Windsor Castle. Problem is we did not have enough time to throughly see any of the three places we visited. 1 hour in Windsor Castle, 1 hour in Stonehenge & 45 minutes in Bath. The lunch was a disgrace. Lettuce...

This week my husband and I traveled to the Warner Brothers Happy Potter Studios with a package from Golden Tours, London. The studio tour has nothing to do with Golden Tours; they just get you tickets and there and back. In fairness, they do say that transportation is on a double-decker bus. But it also says with heat. We did... More

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
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.
