We traveled with my parents, who are in their 70s, and kids that are 7 and 10. The tour was perfect for all of us. It had the perfect mixture of fun facts, lights, and some walking. All of us had a wonderful time...and Greg, the driver, was amazing. Can't wait for our next tour.

Great tour with an excellent driver who entertained us with many facts and stories. It was a bit pricey as there was only 2 of us, however, if you had 5 people it only works out £50 each. Having said That, we still thought it was worth the cost. Picks you up from your central hotel and takes you back to where you want to go. Highly recommended

Our tour guide David was fantastic. He is a living encyclopedia of London. Thanks to him our tour of the Christmas lights was a memorable one. My partner and my in-laws were delighted. Can’t recommend doing this tour with David enough!

This was our first night in London, and THIS WAS THE BEST DECISION WE MADE! Andrew was our guide and I told him I was a bit of a royal fan, so he hit ALL the places for lights and royal hot spots. ABSOLUTE Highlight of our trip. Don’t hesitate; book it. You won’t regret it. Can’t wait to see Andrew on our next trip over the pond. 🎄😍❤️👑

Our experience was better than we could have imagined. Our driver modified the Christmas lights to include all the famous Harry Potter stops as well as Beatles highlights and Sherlock Holmes. He went above and beyond despite it being Christmas Eve and having his own family at home. We are so grateful!!

London has so many beautiful Christmas light displays and our tour guide, Steve, showed us them all. He also offered to take lots of pictures of us next to the lights. He knew just the right spots to make great shots. This tour was lots of fun! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and he included lots of stops to walk around and really see the lights or take pictures. Our interests were factored into specifically what we saw, which made the tour even more enjoyable. This was my first trip to London, and this tour was unique and the highlight of what we did.
