Discover the best views of London on a vintage double-decker bus and enjoy a luxury afternoon tea with a glass of champagne while cruising down the River Thames.

From the top of your vintage double-decker bus, you'll be able to admire Big Ben, the Shard, the London Eye, Saint Paul's Cathedral and many other famous monuments.

The bus will make several stops to give you the chance to take photos of the capital's landmark sites, including Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. At Tower Pier, you will take a boat for a short cruise on the Thames ending at Embankment Pier. Then head to Buckingham Palace, the queen's official residence, for another photo stop.

Finally, you'll board another boat for an hour-long cruise during which a traditional afternoon tea will be served. Try a selection of different teas and pastries on offer while you gaze out on the passing riverside monuments such as the London Eye and the Tower of London. To top off this this luxurious and relaxing outing, you'll also be served a glass of champagne during the cruise.

  • Une catastrophe!!!! Un piège à touristes. Le tour en car est très limité : c'est long parce qu'on est bloqué dans les embouteillages mais on ne voit pas grand chose de la ville finalement. Arrivés à la Tour de Londres, 40 minutes de temps libre: inutile. On paie un tarif élevé pour 3h de prestation alors on n'a pas besoin de 40 minutes de temps libre!! Ensuite le fameux afternoon tea luxueux: une honte! Le champagne était tiède, le thé du vulgaire Lipton hyper fort, les scones pas frais, les sandwich dégoulinants de mayonnaise et la la Bonne Maman a la fraise. Pour finir, la "croisière " devait durer soi-disant 1 heure et n'a duré que 25 minutes!!! Bref, une arnaque hors de prix à éviter absolument !!

  • As we had never visited London before, we booked with premium tours for a bus tour of London including a high tea cruise on the river Thames, the whole experience was amazing, our tour guide was fantastic (just a shame we can't mention her name, so she gets the credit she deserves). We made to feel really welcomed from the start and by the end of the tour we felt like we had seen and learned so much. We would definitely recommend and would definitely use them again for future tours. Definitely value for money, very organised and a lovely experience.
