The tour was nice. It gave alot of history. It gave a different aspect of London. The tour also allowed you to see the city in lights!
Not that amazing
, Jan 2020
This was kind of like a hop-on-hop-off type bus affair where you just get on whatever the next tour bus is along with whoever else is waiting at the stop. The weather was rainy and cold and the upper deck had only half a roof, which meant that you could choose to get a wet butt on the seat but see what you were driving past, sit inside where the fog and rain on the windows made it impossible to take photos or see much. Obviously the provider can't control the weather, but the sort of bus it was combined with the weather made it a disappointing tour.

We did not fully take the benfit of the sightseeing tour and we considered that it was rather expensive for what we got out of it for the following reasons: I. The audio for French translation was not given at the beginning and when we asked for it only 3 were available (whilst we were 5) :( . The 'person in charge' was not able to explain us how it worked :( . And finally after struggling they did not even work :( :( :( II. The driver was driving rather fast and it was very difficult to appreciate the scenery or even to take pictures :( . Suggestion: when possible the bus driver could stop in front of the main buildings in order to let the tourists take a picture. Noneless to say we would appreciate a refund of the tickets. Best regards,

The tour is well done with capable driver and tour guide. The only criticism is that the tour guide recognized that there were many German speaking tourists on board and tended to modify the tour to suit them more than the overall general public. Also, the tour ended on a bit of a sour note as we came up to a very serious car accident and the police shut down the road. As such, our tour ended early and we had to get off the bus and make our way back to our hotels, homes, etc. on our own with little or no help from anyone.
Great way to see London at night
