What people are saying about Saint James's

That was to celebrate my son's 12th birthday. We enjoyed exploring London. Cruise on Thames with fantastic commentary of captains. Good facilities, nice and clean. The only thing, we had not enough time to finish all activities in on day. Bus stop running at about 5pm, not enough for us but i am planing to take another tour soon. Is worth of money. Thank you to all nice tootbus and city cruise staff. Very up lifting after spending time in lockdowns. Thank you, my son really enjoyed it.

The bus tour was incredible, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and humorous. I would recommend the river cruise from Westminster to Tower of London but don't go to Greenwich as there's really not much of interest.

Brilliant tour, our guide Chris was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited and the history too. Make sure you have a good breakfast as the food stop is right at the end of the tour at Borough market.

Very nice tour and very clear also they are helpful when you need. But it should tell on the bus stop the time table to know how long we will wait for the next one.

It was great, easy, informative and easy to find them.
