Our tour guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. I feel like we saw a ton of the city, without being exhausted at the end of the day.

St. Paul and the Tower of London were two of our favorite things we saw. The changing of the guard was very interesting. Sort of a very formal shift change.

This tour is PERFECT for learning all about London in 1 day! So many things to see. And our tour guide Sheila was fantastic. Such a beautiful city with a rich history. My favorite part was The Tower of London.

It was a good tour but the tour guide had long legs and he used them to move too fast. He left much of the group behind. Allow more time at the changing of the guard stop because we were constantly rushing around with little time to stop and take a photo or else you got left behind. The drop off after the boat tour left us confused about how to get back to our hotel.

It was a waste of time, you don't get to see anything properly, you just passing by everything, the tour guide was very good, but the way the operate the tour wasn't what I was expected , The reason I booked this tour was because my dad has mobility problem and I wanted him to see and experience the most important sightseeing in London, but did not met our expectation.

Tour was not what expected. The guide (Gofrid) left the tourist in the London Tower and still we had to do the city cruise and London Rye (it was not optional. You had to take the option with London Eye). Evan Evans Tour left us away from the departure point. I think the tour was not well organized. Probably, they start by the tower and river and then the city with more walking passages (it was 95% coach passing a couple of times from the same place). Tour guide and driver did not have good connection.

We have used Viator in a number of locations during our travels. The London excursion did not disappoint. We loved the day with our tour guides (Evan Evans Tours) and it was a great value.

If you are able and mobile, this is a waste of time. There’s no part of this tour that are worth the money you pay. You can use that money towards a London Pass and ride the hop on and hop off bus with audio guide and have save your $$$ and gotten more from what you spent plus extra more access to other places to visit. It was so boring just sitting and the guide pointing the places from the bus (Which would have been better in a double decker) and you can’t see anything from where you’re sitting down. The guide was so boring that other people fell asleep or ended up chatting and were told off. There was nothing the tour offered that you can’t do on your own. In the tour in buckingham we ended up listening to another guide because he was being more informative, enthusiastic and interactive. So far this is the worse money I ever spent here

Make sure it says Victoria COACH Station instead of Victoria's station! One is the train station and the other is the bus station. We missed the first half of this tour because of that typo. You really need to change that in the details. It really really ruined the trip for us. Otherwise our tour guide when we caught up to her in the afternoon was excellent. Can't give her enough rave reviews. However, there was no information for how to sign up for the eye. I did not know that it was extra and was very disappointed to find out that our tickets did not include it. Where the heck was it to sign up for? Again very disappointing instructions on sign up page!
