End your excursion with spectacular views of the city from one of the panoramic pods of the London Eye. Head off for a tour of the city onboard a vintage double-decker bus.

Good impression of the city in a few hours !!!

The tour was very nice. Started the bus tour where you occasionally got off the bus. The guide also did it very funny and told nice stories. Then the tour and finally the London Eye. Really recommended. The complete tour is fun to do, especially if you do not know London yet, right in a few hours a good view of the city because you will come to different places.

nice tour with small drawbacks

nice tour in the open bus through London. You can see a lot and there is a half-hour photo stop with a view of Tower Bridge. We would not have needed the subsequent boat trip; Those who booked the tour with the London Eye should know that the tour will end beforehand and that they have to queue at the London Eye on their own - the upgrade for priority may be worthwhile depending on the queue (you can probably book in line at the stand yourself ). Overall, however, a nice trip!
