My parents and I took this tour and weren't sure of how it would turn out. However, Flavius took us to a lot of places we had not even heard of before even after having visited London a couple of times and also gave us many insider tips. The trip was amazing overall. Highly recommended
Ahmed was amazing. He made sure we got the full experience we were looking for. Ahmed explained everything above and beyond what we were expecting. This was an amazing tour with an just as an amazing tour guide.
This tour was wonderful. Seeing things at night gives London a different feel and is a beautiful experience. Ahmed was what made it the BEST. We didn't give him a lot of direction, just a couple of things we were interested in and he took it from there. His knowledge is amazing and makes everything even things we were unaware of fascinating and interesting. And he knew how to get the best photo opportunities!
Our driver Dusko was so accommodating. I had some colleagues from overseas who literally only had the one evening to 'see' London. I recommended a few places and Dusko ensured that we saw them all.
He found the best routes and even picked us up earlier. An absolutely delightful and knowledgeable guide.
Be sure to have an agenda of what you would like to see before starting the tour, or you will waste time making a decision.
We booked this tour largely based on other peoples reviews as it sounded an ideal way to see London. Having been on the trip it now seems obvious that everything depends on the driver. We were unlucky! We were due to be picked up at our hotel at 8pm and were duly waiting on the pavement. Twenty minutes later after checking both entrances and looking around inside we found our driver hanging around in a corner not making any attempt to find us. OK, a bad start but not the end of the world. Our driver was a woman from the Czech Republic we discovered later who had been in England for eight years. Considering this her grasp of the English language was poor! We had a brief and confused conversation about what we wanted to do and said that we'd like to drive over Chelsea Bridge and visit the South Bank for a stop but apart from that we would leave it to her. We saw the bridge but didn't go over it not a major problem, we saw a lot of the sights with a few monosyllabic descriptions e.g. That's err Buckingham Palace. We went over Westminster bridge but instead of heading for the vibrant nightlife we were looking for just drove along an dead road and back over the river. The best I can say is that the driver we never found out her name could certainly drive in London. We didn't get a stop, we didn't get any sort of commentary, and we didn't get to see Soho. Altogether a very disappointing evening and as I said at the start It all depends on the driver!
Driver never showed. Calls to find out why resulted in being told no such booking existed. They did, howver, manage to charge my credit card for the tour.
Poor review doesn't reflect the driver who was very nice. He was called into service when our driver didn't show up, for supposed car trouble. I had to call several times over and hour and 5 minutes and was told someone would be there soon. No one called to inform us there was a problem. Driver used Google maps to drive to sights however didn't know any of the history and we stopped the tour after 2 hours. Would recommend calling an Uber driver and working out a tour. This company lacked professionalism and attentiveness.
After confirming 24 - 48 hours in advance per their request and verifying the 8pm pick up. they never showed up and when the hotel called about the no show, they said they did not have a driver available for my tour. By this time it was too late to schedule something else. Thought it would be a great way to end our stay in London we were so wrong. Ruined our last night in London.
Worst experience EVER while on Vacation. Driver obviously didn't want to be giving us the Tour Offered and Paid for, and we had to pay a Cash only upcharge for him to actually pick us up for our already paid for Tour.
Speed thru the sights, offered nothing more than this is Stop so and so.
THEN, even though it CLEARLY was on the tour booking, and on my confirmation Email, Driver tried to force us to find an alternate way home when he deemed the Tour was over, 40 Minutes before his Booked time ended.
Thus inciting a panic thru my family at 10:15 PM on a Monday night in the middle of Downtown London.
Several minutes of bickering, and the driver arguing with The Company later, and he grudgingly was told to take us back to our hotel.
So, thank you to the driver for scaring 3 kids and 2 parents on their last night in London. Your actions undoubtedly determined we will never be back in London for more than a Plane Change from now on.
