BEWARE!! Even if you have delayed flights and notify them you won't make your tour arrival in time, they will NOT issue refunds. We took a trip last month to London and had a flight delay for 3.5 hours. I knew we would miss the start of the tour and called to see if we could either cancel ours or catch up at the next stop. I was told we would not be able to join late and therefor missed out on our bus tour and several hundred dollars in fees for our family. It was a total bummer. Maybe check around for other companies that would be more understanding for issues that are out of your hands.

Thank you for this wonderful tour experience. It was amazing. I highly recommend it. It's great for a first time visit to London as we covered almost everything in London. And on the iconic red bus. Peter our tour guide was also amazing. Very funny with the jokes. Enjoyed the tour thoroughly thank you once again!

Connor was awesome!!! We loved our tour. Great to see so many spots in one day. Connor had all kind of great tips and facts to share. Would definitely recommend it.

Came to London for a friend’s birthday and, as it was a first visit for her, we decided to take a tour. It was very nice, the guides were very knowledgeable and, on top of the information provided, we also got a taste of the famous British humour! Would definitely recommend, especially on a sunny day!

Up close and personal with all the sites in London - it was great to see where you wanted to go and make a plan to get there while you were on the bus. Also made a stop at the Tower of London!
