Interesting tour - shame about the lights

Getting on the bus was first come, first on regardless if you had pre-booked tickets. We got on at the time we pre-booked but only just and bearing in mind with this type of bus you want to be up top, my advice is get there early! The tour guide and the driver (John and Nigel) were great considering the bad traffic that night and delay getting started and John (tour guide) was informative and witty and did well with a tired (tour started 9.30pm) audience. It was disappointing that some of the lights weren't on (Albert Memorial) and no lights or fountains at Trafalgar Square. This obviously out of their control - London Council perhaps trying to save money! Regardless of this, the tour was interesting and informative and I certainly learned a thing or two about the cities of London. Highlights for us; definately Tower Bridge and Westminster, Elizabeth Tower and the London Eye, and singing our way under London Bridge.

Excellent way to spend 2 1/2 hours in London if you're a Potter fan.

I booked this with some trepidation as my daughter is 9 and a huge Harry Potter fan. I was worried that she would be disappointed that the locations looked nothing like the film but the way it was done with the ipads showing the complete scene from the film while you were stood on the same street corner was very effective. Being sorted into houses and having a quiz between the teams made it entertaining too. It is quite a lot of walking - ours coped well aged 9 but was starting to get tired by the end. It takes in a lot of the London sights as well and makes you realise how small the actual centre of London is. Tom our guide was brilliant - informative and patient, no mean feat to traipse that amount of people round the streets and on the tube!

Three day ticket was good value for money

We were a group of four, with 3-day tickets. We saw everything we wanted to see. The life commentary on the red tour was instructive and fun. The river cruise to Greenwich was included, again, the commentary was interesting. The traffic in London was bad due to roadworks, but the tour buses made a good job of it. However, we were not informed in time that one of the stops was not open, and so we had to walk back a while to get where we wanted to be. There had been a lengthy raft of instructions, as well as a change of bus, and so what was being said may have made sense to the staff, but we did not hear it. That was the only negative of the three day experience.

Fun and interesting tour, Tom was very knowledgable and entertaining.

Booked this tour for my daughter’s birthday (she’s 25) and myself as were both Potter fans. Tom our guide both entertaining and knowledgeable about Harry Potter and London. We got to see parts of London you may not normally see. I would highly recommend this tour and Tom as a guide.

Entertaining, great way to spend and hour and a bit!

Like theatre on the road. Great tour interesting and entertaining. Im unable yo take part in walking tours. This was a fab way to see the “ghoulish” sites in London whilst being seated on a bus. If you get a chance try this, just dont take it to seriously.......
