Full description
London Vintage Bus & Boat Tour See the highlights of London via 2 classic modes of transport on this half-day adventure. First, you will enjoy great views of Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, and the London Eye as you meander through the historic streets on board a vintage double-decker bus. Continue on and see St. Paul’s Cathedral - Sir Christopher Wren’s architectural masterpiece, where Admirals Nelson and Wellington are buried, and where Princess Diana and Prince Charles got married. Proceed to the Tower of London, built nearly 1,000 years ago during the reign of William the Conqueror. Home to the Crown Jewels, the Tower is protected by the famous Beefeaters, and the imposing palace has been used as a fortress and a prison throughout its history. Your guide will take you to Traitors' Gate, where prisoners entered the Tower for the last time. Next, take a short river cruise along the Thames, passing Shakespeare’s Globe, Cleopatra’s Needle, and London Bridge, before arriving at Westminster Pier.

The only reason I haven't gave top rating for this is because of the experience in harrods, which was appalling. The bus tour and river cruise were first class and the guide was fantastic. I would highly recommend the tour, just don't bother with the harrods add on it was terrible.

The guide was fantastic ! The bus trip and boat trip was very good value for money and very enjoyable! The only Disappointment was Harrods cream tea which is nothing to do with the tour but still the guide stayed with us even though the Harrods staff had messed up ! We waited over an hour and sat with no drink then had scones waited 20 mins for tea ! The tour itself is well worth it ! Highly recommend for a good day out !

Booked as a suprise for my mother's belated 70th birthday. We really enjoyed the whole experience and found our guide Pepe friendly fun and informative. There was a slight change to the route due to London bridge being closed but it didn't make any difference to the experience, We chose to sit on upper open air deck and was glad we dressed warm as it was cold, but thankfully dry. It was great experiencing the sights of London during the daylight but equally as lovely seeing it all lit up in the late afternoon. The river cruise was also great and interesting to see London from a different angle, again Jack was a great guide on the boat too. Again we braved the top deck which was open air and weren't disappointed. It did appear lovely and warm in the lower deck which would suit some people more. The afternoon tea at Harrods consisted of a glass of prosecco, two scones clotted cream and a pot of tea finished the tour off perfectly. Great tour and amazing value for money! 5* experience.
