    Dear chaseh665, I would like to thank you for sharing your experience and I am truly glad to learn that you and your grandparents has a great and entertaining experience on board the river cruise Kindly take note that depending on the date you are travelling the demand on the service increases and as a consequence there are more users on board or waiting to board our buses. However, your comments on the overcrowding on the bus left me deeply concerned since we need to enforce the safety measures of the bus and therefore we cannot allow on board more passengers than the number established as the maximum permitted. I will transfer your comments to the corresponding department in order to avoid this incident from happening again. Sincerely Terence G.

    Dear jodit888, I would like to thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Kindly take note that London is a noticeable busy city and issues as traffic jams can affect directly our service frequency and slow it down. Our buses include audio guides that provide short descriptions for the sites viewed from our buses in order for the customers to get a general idea of what London has to offer. Sincerely, Terence G.
