It was amazing

5 out of 5

We took a free tour with our tour guide, Andrew. It was amazing. He was very informative, funny, and easy to talk to and encouraged questions. We saw Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben (under construction), and a lot more. He gave us some great advice for seeing other sites too that were low budget. Would definitely recommend this tour!!!

A lovely way to see the city and places you miss on a bus tour

5 out of 5

A lovely way to see the city and places you miss on a bus tour, Adam our guide was extremely knowledgeable and helped me remember all the history I had forgotten from school as well as learning new insights into the feudal royal history. It is a lovely way to see the capital and I would recommend to anyone, the pay what you feel model means you can show your appreciation at your own rate and part of your trip goes to charity so winner all around.
