This tour was EXCELLENT. Our guide JASON was terrific - he was a wealth of information, personable and considerate of his group (so none of us got left behind). His direction got us to each point of interest at the best time and locations. We also appreciated our driver, MIKE, who maneuvered the huge bus to convenient drop off points, drove safely AND was also was well informed on the London spots. Both guides were perfect examples of London Gentlemen! We loved this day. thank you

Wonderful tour , we enjoyed it very much , same family keep coming late from time on owen and we had to keep waiting for them , that was a little aggravating but it was not the tour falth , I think there should be a time limit for being late , like if you are late more then 10 Min for the 2nd time the tour leaves , it is not fare to the rest of the group to lose time because of a couple . I am just saying . wonderful tour and wonderful guide .

London city tour was great! Guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Wished the tour used audio set during the walk around the sights, difficult to follow and hear guide when many tourists are doing the same thing with their guides. If you don’t stay at front of group you’ll miss what guide is explaining.
