Die Tour ist absolut kindgerecht mit vielen Bildern, Geschichten und Infos. Mein 9jähriger Sohn war absolut begeistert. Aber auch mir als Elternteil hat es viel Spaß gemacht.

What people are saying about Horse Guards Parade at Whitehall

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.

This hop on hop off bus was very convenient! My family and I were able to see all of the sightseeing places we wanted to go to. It's a great way to get around the city and the views on top of the panoramic bus were amazing.

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.

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.
