This tour was EXCELLENT. Our guide JASON was terrific - he was a wealth of information, personable and considerate of his group (so none of us got left behind). His direction got us to each point of interest at the best time and locations. We also appreciated our driver, MIKE, who maneuvered the huge bus to convenient drop off points, drove safely AND was also was well informed on the London spots. Both guides were perfect examples of London Gentlemen! We loved this day. thank you

A really pleasant and well-organised trip. Everything was as it was mentioned in the site and our tourist guide “John” was really funny and punctual, as well as friendly.

Dave was a wonderful tour guide. He was both knowledgeable and well spoken. We were able to get a great tour of the city the first day visiting with our family. It would be nice if it started a little later since it’s hard to find the couch gate. Also, we did not get to see the change of the guard which was one of the main reasons we booked this tour. Everything else was great with the London Tower and St. Paul’s being out favorite stops.

Tour covered a lot of highlights. However the guide did not account for slower walkers and lost a few of us on the “walk” to see the changing of the guards. He did not seem overly concerned that 2 people were missing and needed to be asked forcefully to wait for the members to catch up. The guide seemed intent on keeping to his schedule and appeared “put out” when members of the group asked for a bathroom break.
There was also a little too much time spent at the Tower of London (3 hours)! The boat ride on the Thames was quick and the “cream tea” at Harrods was a little late in the day, therefore it felt rushed.

Prime Tour Group met at the bus station which was confusing on its on but then they don’t even return you to where your started. We had to uber back from out last location. I was not happy and no one had any idea that we would have to pay additional money to get back from where we started. I thought it was very unprofessional.

I booked the tour for 29 Dec. (a Sunday) and was excited to go. Unfortunately, after the tour started we were all informed that we would not be able to enter St. Paul’s Cathedral or Westminster Abbey because they would be holding their church services.

I understood, but strongly feel that this needs to be included in the description. Everyone on our tour specifically paid for entrance into St. Paul’s Cathedral and did not get to go inside! Additionally, none of us were informed via our travel agents or the companies we used to book the trip that this would be the case.

Also, we were promised to see the Crown Jewels, but because we didn’t arrive until after 1pm, the line was over two hours long. Our tour guide told us that if we chose to wait, we would miss our boat cruise so we would need to choose which we wanted.

I would have only given the tour one star, but the tour guide was decent and had a lot of info to share. But she was also not the best tour guide I’ve had (kept getting names and dates mixed up) and took too long to explain things...

Overall, I think I should have saved my money and gone to a pub or the Jack the Ripper tour.
