Vintage Double Decker Bus Tour & Thames River Cruise
- Duration: 3.5 hours
Could have been better - not very clear where to board; the tour set off late and there was no commentary throughout the trip. When we reached our destination, the 'tour guide' apologised for this stating he forgot to give us a commentary of this tour and only remembered when reminded by one of the other travellers. His attitude was of "I can't be bothered commentating". We were looking forward to this trip and was extremely disappointed with the attitude of this "tour guide commentator" The trip did NOT last one hour as advertised, but 40 mins with a brief stop at St Katherines Quay!
Really enjoyed our trip to London and our package we purchased. We wanted to do the London Eye and hop on hop off bus - the river cruise was an additional extra thrown in and ended up being the highlight. We ended up walking most of the way around the city, only using the bus twice - both times to go just one stop. Magnificent views from the London Eye - but the cruise was just wonderful. We went from Tower Bridge to Westminster. The guy speaking was really funny and the facts super interesting. The baileys hot chocolate on board also delicious. Would absolutely recommend.
This exceeded expectations. The food was really tasty, none of it tasted as though it had been defrosted or reheated. The drink prices were reasonable for a river cruise (£5.2 for a wine). The commentary was excellent, easy to understand and hear and both informative and funny. All staff were pleasant.
It was great experience, there was no restriction on moving around the cruise and taking pics. Despite current situation of COVID-19, we could sift our seating place and took pics standing different part of cruise without wearing mask while still maintaining distance with others.
Brilliant tour, our guide Chris was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited and the history too. Make sure you have a good breakfast as the food stop is right at the end of the tour at Borough market.
