Two things would have been useful to know beforehand; 1) you buy a voucher and must exchange it for a ticket at the national express counter outside Stansted (near the buses) and 2) you must also indicate from which stop you want to return.

It worked without any problems! The information stand at the airport could be a little more conspicuous, otherwise friendly service, nice air-conditioned bus.

The drivers are very nice, the bus stops easy to find. Overall a very good service if you seek to experience the city center.

Peter was a fantastic guide. I booked this for my dad's birthday and he thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Excellent everything from London. I did both circuits, it was great!
