The tour guide was very enthusiastic and energetic but the background noise of traffic etc made it hard to hear all the live commentary. We were half way back and missed about 20% of it. It’s more for adults than kids in content but a pleasing way to spend 45 mins particularly on a warm day.

I took my 8 year old granddaughter on this tour and figured the 45 minutes would be enough for her. As it was just before The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee we couldn’t get near Buckingham Palace which was a shame. However we sat at the front of the bus which meant we had an almost panoramic view of most sights. The explanations were interesting and the fact that ‘crowns’ were given out to wear, along with an information book including quiz questions made everything more enjoyable and a nice memento of the trip. I would definitely recommend it to those with young children. The driver and the guide were both friendly and helpful.

Trip worked very well with young children. Ideal length of time. We were with 5 and 7 year olds and wouldn’t have wanted any longer. Guide handed out a kids activity booklet which was a nice addition and did well getting children involved. Route included a good number of key sights, particularly at the beginning. The mid-latter part of the route had less well known sights, maybe less appealing to children but overall it worked well and was just what we were looking for.
