It is worth remembering that there are actually some differences between what Get Your Guide advertises and what actually happens: 1st difference is the travel time, it advertises 80min but it's 2h. 2nd The south terminal is closed so we can't take the bus there. And that makes us waste a lot of time going back and forth at the airport until we find out it's in the north terminal. 3rd is the road he advertises, the bus does not go on that road because we are still going to Heathrow airport to make a stopover.

Everything worked perfectly! The voucher was easily exchanged directly at the counter on site and we were assigned to the next bus! The bus runs about every 15 minutes and was not even half full for us. However, the journey takes significantly longer than with the Gatwick Express (bus: approx. 1.5 hours, Gatwick Express: approx. 0.5 hours) but is a bit cheaper (Gatwick Express: £19.90).
