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!

A very mediocre tour, stuck in traffic for some lengthy parts of the tour with the guide running out of facts so very little interaction at times. Especially as only people sat on the right hand side of the bus able to hear as some speaker's on the right must have been broken as unable to hear the guide. When not stuck in traffic went past the lights so fast you missed them? You can do virtually the same tour for £1.50 on the number 6 bus from Edgware road to Charring cross, please see pics.

Perhaps we were unlucky but we were expecting a festive fun experience! Instead we were subjected to a monologue of facts presented in a droll tone and whizzed past the parts that had good lights! Guide remained downstairs. Would have been good to have some festive info. Perhaps London Chrismas traditions. Or alternatively just play Christmas music! Guide often pointed out historical things that were in the opposite direction of the lights. To add insult to injury we, at one point, stopped next to The Original Tour tour bus and the guide was upstairs and interacting with the group and they looked like they were having a great time, and they had Santa hats! Not worth £24 for ONE hour! I loved the ghost tour with this company. The conductor was energetic and the actor funny! This tour was just boring!

This was an open top bus tour of London - excellent way to get an overview of the city when you don't have much time. Definitely recommend it.

We choose (for our business visitors from Canada) the classic tour as part of a program of events for them to experience all things London - and we weren't disappointed; in fact our group are still talking about how much fun they all had onboard the Classic Red London Routemaster bus. Our tour guide was humourous, chivalrous and knowledgeable; he provided us with over an hour of pure entertainment of the history of London whilst delivering his patter in a classic British BBC/Breakfast Radio dulcet tones. The driver was polite and charming whilst he kept us safe and moving through the traffic of London to see as much as we could during the tour time. Why book a set audio bus tour when you can experience something bespoke and private for your group with beverages onboard a classic open-top London red routemaster bus. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and our guests have a wonderful memory to take away from their first visit to London. THANK YOU

We had a FABULOUS time on a bright January day on the top of the bus! Peter is hilarious, incredibly knowledgeable and made the time fly! Zach was our driver and I’m still impressed at how he navigated the mayhem that is London traffic. I HIGHLY recommend this tour ❤️

Peter was an excellent tour guide! He was very informative, had a good sense of humor and still managed to get across quite a bit of history. We had to deal with a little bit of traffic and yet he still had facts and history to fill the void of waiting for an accident to be cleared. All in all very pleased, even the 3 year old enjoyed it.
