"Fabulous. Would never have thought of it before, and yet it's the best way to see round London. Helped that the weather was fantastic. Would highly recommend."

"The gentleman who gave the live guide was fantastic!!!' He deserves to be recognized. 11.20am from Piccadilly. He has a sense of humor and gives interesting excellent coverage. It is a pity he had to get off around lunch. He was amazing."
