Well organized tour, very fun and exciting experience, the bus runs all day and you can get on and off whenever you want at the indicated stops. This way we toured all over London! Too bad the queue at the London Eye which unfortunately limited the time for the cruise, but considering the period between Christmas and New Year's it is understandable. Highly recommended tour, everyone is very kind and helpful.

collecting the ticket was so much easier than I thought at the meeting point, We collected our ticket around 1pm had only two time slots left for the day for London eye so better to collect your ticket early if you can so you'll have plenty of time options to choose from.

Everything went well, except representative, who met us in front of Marriott. Rude, no answers, gave us tickets and just run away. So we didn't know how to rich our boat and bus. Good we booked time for London Eye. That representative was absolutely USELESS.

Seamless and great easy directions booking was so easy and the attractions great

It was wonderful. Simon was a perfect guide for us!
