Entertaining and informative tour

Short visit
Paula_H, June 2023
We had a 20 hour layover in London and this was perfect because we were tired and I had a cold. Just sit , look and listen. Can’t wait to return to London.

Arrived near the eye hopped on the bus for a spin around the sights of London The narrated trip gave some new knowledge to the tour
Perfect for a quick London stopover!
Tami_K, May 2023
We absolutely loved this tour AND our guide! We have three older children…ages15, 19 and 25 and it was one of the highlights of our European trip! We’d been traveling all day with just one night in London and this was the perfect way to still see the highlights! Our guide made it personable and fun…even to a very travel tired family…he kept our full attention! Would highly recommend!
Great experience for the tourist!

Emma was an amazing tour guide, she had tons of knowledge and a great sense of humor! She made the tour very enjoyable!
London on a summer night
Cliff_N, May 2023
This was our first time to the UK and we started with this tour. I thought this tour was a great start to determine all you want to see up close before all the miles of walking in the subsequent days. Emma at #GTMoments (Golden Tours) was fabulous and entertaining as she gave the history of London. If you can request Emma… DO IT!!
The driver for this tour was a no-show...waste of time!
charles_h, May 2023
The tour bus never showed up. I contacted the tour operator and no one ever got back to me. I waited 30 minutes and then left.
Thanks again
Julia_Y, May 2023
Wonderful bus trip. William was fantastic. I was in on business and it was great to get to see the town in a short period of time.
Must do!
Todd_D, Apr 2023
We very much enjoyed the commentary of William who gave us many interesting facts. The speaker system was quite bad despite all the efforts of the Tour Guide
Worth it!
Elaine_N, Apr 2023
Our guide Jack was great! Funny, entertaining and informative. We enjoyed the tour! I would recommend it!
Fun and history filled bus tour
Jacqueline_A, Apr 2023
Fun way to see London just as the sun is setting and as it gets dark. Emma our tour guide was super knowledgeable about history of lots of places, not just the big landmarks, so it was fun as the bus stopped at random traffic lights for her to tell us about what we were next to! I learned new things on this tour and it was a great introduction for my friend who had never been to London before. Thanks!!
Reliable and knowledge....
Katja_E, Apr 2023
Reliable and knowledge. Great first tour of London. Will mention it to family and friends and sure to do it again. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Entertaining and educational.
James_P, Apr 2023
Dominic was super entertaining and his presentation made it worth it. Give the man a raise please!!!
A fun class in an outdoor museum.
Julia_K, Apr 2023
Dominic. His knowledge was astounding and his humor very dry, which I liked. I wish I had taken notes.
Great time!
Jennifer_N, Apr 2023
Really enjoyed our bus tour! We only had two days in London, and we knew we couldn’t see everything. The tour was a great way to see the city quickly. Also, our tour guide was awesome! Would definitely recommend!
Nicole_C, Mar 2023
Brilliant, professional tour guide, must wear winter clothes, will refer to friend and join again. Driver stop at attraction for picture and drive slow.
Worth your money, amazing tour!
Ivy_F, Mar 2023
We had an amazing time. The driver Antonio- he made it a very smooth ride for us. The live tour guide Joe, he is wonderful! He told the history of each places in an extraordinary way! He made it fun and interactive too! We saw beautiful structures and places and learned a lot at the same time! This tour was definitely worth it.
Lovely Tour!
Elissa_H, Mar 2023
This tour gave us all access to the Stonehenge Welcome Center and shuttle access to the site. We were given ample time to wander the visitor center, visit the actual site and return for a quick snack and gift shop. Not all tours give you that much time. On the way back, we ran into traffic but our guide went around and actually took us by Windsor castle, the field where the Magna Carta was signed, and was super knowledgeable. Wonderful experience and only a few hours long so that you can do other things when you return.
Aweome way to quickly see the main sites at night!
Jennifer_A, Feb 2023
This was a super fun tour of all the main sites and we learned a lot about each of the buildings through the audio guide that was provided. Headphones were included!
