Nice aftermath to my Tower of London visit - Really enjoyed the trip between Tower of London and Trafalgar. The person who took the tickets was very informative and pointed out historical locations and main tourist sites. Well worth the price!! Highly recommend.

Don't waste your money - So disappointing. Waited for a long time, bus finally arrived...no commentary, no explanation when it stopped and the engine was turned off. It appeared the remaining stops has been cancelled due to roadworks in the area of Picadilly circus, so the plan was for the bus to turn around and do the same route we had just done. This was only communicated when we went to locate the driver to enquire why we were no longer moving. Don't waste your money. You can catch a local bus for 1/10th of the price and do this exact trip without having to wait 30 minutes for the bus to show up.

Didn't happen for us. - We were never able to locate the stop and waited at various possible locations at Trafalgar /Charring Cross. Saw a bus at one point but it didn't seem to stop anywhere. Finally gave up. The company might consider publishing a map of the route and the locations of the various stops. Can't comment on the bus, or the tour since we were never able to find it.
