  • Go on, treat yourself!

    Amazing afternoon tea bus tour! Food was lovely, better than i thought it would be to be honest and they even had a vegan menu. This was a treat for me and my sister but would make a fab birthday gift too.

  • We both loved it!

    I took my son with me as he is crazy about buses (and trains). He had a lot of fun and we both enjoyed the food. Plenty of it and well prepared. Would recommend!

  • Fantastic

    I had a fantastic time celebrating my birthday on the tour bus, with my Mum and Sister. The bus was comfy and decorated in bright lights.

    The afternoon tea sandwiches and pastries was delicious and were well presented. I loved the variety of teas offered.

    The tour was also nice, I came across a few some new places/ landmarks, although I have lived in London for 30 years! I wish the tour was a bit longer, 2 hours would be perfect.

    It wasn't so easy to enjoy the views travelling backwards, and would prefer a front facing seat next time.

    Overall a lovely experience and the staff were superb.
