Booked through Get your Guide. Printed tickets off but downloaded App too. Purchased a day pass so worked out what we could do in a day using the Pass. Used Big Bus Tours. It takes ages to get around the whole circle of the city. We were told 2 hours but its more like 2 and 1/2. Missed seeing some of the landmarks due to road closures. We went to Westminster Abbey. Booked 3pm to 3.30pm slot at St Paul's. Boarded the bus at 1.45 and only just made the slot at 3.30pm. The bus went past the Abbey 3 or 4 times which was strange. From St Paul's we made our 6pm booking at the Shard. Would recommend purchasing the pass and the attractions we visited.

easy to get River pass from Westminster and just showed the pass at the museums in Greenwich. very easy and enjoyable day, would recommend.

This was a great day tour. Leslie was a good guide and there was sufficient time allocated for each of the sites/attractions!

I liked it very well. I learned a great deal in a lively way that I did not yet know.

Brill lots of attractions with London pass easy to use saved loads of money.
