Planning Your Visit

Even though this is aimed at children all the adults in our group had a great time too. Seeing the sights of London from the comfort of the open top deck was fantastic. Our guide was excellent and interacted so well with all the children on the tour. He was knowledgeable funny and entertaining. If I remember rightly his name was Pete.. Thank you Toot Bus. Would definately recommend.

Definitely worth doing! Not too long but long enough and staff is not “pushy” and yet VERY friendly . The guide is full of anecdotes that entertains the little ones as much as the grown up. Very affordable 10 out 10 for us

Really good tour - 3 children under 6 so we didn’t want a long cruise so at about 50 minutes this was perfect. Live guide as well who was very knowledgeable and funny.

Fantastic views over London, line moves quickly even when the crowds are large, must do experience when visiting London.

Fantastic staff and booking service. I would definitely recommend and i have done!
