"It was Fun Enjoyed"

Five stars S. Nankabirwa - UK - 27/02/2022

"Bello! Un buon modo per vedere la città soprattutto se è la prima volta, come ne mio caso, anche se è un po corto come orario e quindi nn sostituisce la metro. Ai bambini è piaciuto forse anche perché il tempo è stato sempre bello......con la pioggia..... chissà."

Four stars Alessandro - Italia - 19/01/2022

"Upgraded to two day tour. tour guides very informative on the yellow tour. very entertaining. pity about the tube strike as tour took two hours longer than usual but the guides made up for the long waits with their knowledgable conversation and jokes. excellent and would recommend to friends"
