Amazing

A wonderful tour! Loved the vintage tour bus, fantastic seeing all the sights and sounds of London. Matthew the fantastic, knowledgeable tour guide gave a wonderful insight into the history of the famous landmarks and Hajjar skillfully navigated the bus through the streets of London. Really enjoyable experience. Would highly recommend!

Open Top, But No Space!

All very well advertising as an open top bus, but no good if they allow more passengers than seats! Booked well in advance, but they gave the seats to people of the street and allowed passengers to save seats for people who were not on the bus yet! Should be first come, first seated, NO SAVING OF SEATS! Tour and commentary good, except when asked to look behind you, which we couldn't do, as was stuck downstairs and could only see the back of the bus!!!

The guide was knowledlegeable and fun. The problems were how fast the tour was. It passes by important attractions like a lightning bolt. Sometimes you don't even have time to enjoy the views and take pictures! I was on the upper deck of the bus, so the trees blocked my view many times. Perhaps going on the lower deck is best.
