Punctual and factual journey, my Daughter relay enjoyed the lights and the scenes we past. Unfortunately we had 3 drunk girls sat in front of us who kept standing in our views for large parts of the journey and not challenged to sit down by tour guide, until 4 families asked nicely as they ignored us

The tour was fun and informative with plenty of chances to take good pictures and get a nice view of the Christmas lights! The tour guide William was very personable and did a great job of keeping us entertained and engaged, while also sharing information about the city of London. Would highly recommend this tour if you are thinking of doing a bus tour of London

It was a good ride. Got to see all the amazing Christmas lights as well as other parts of the city, which was great for me as it helped me map out some routes to other attractions. However there was so much traffic on the day plus it rained so it made it a bit uncomfortable but still worth it.
