    Although London was beautiful and it was a clear night the tour was Very Disappointing as you could not hear the speaker who was speaking in a thick accent and speakers muffled. I wanted some history and to know what landmarks were but I could not clearly hear or understand her

    We booked a last minute evening Christmas lights tour on Christmas Eve. Open top, very cold. But so worth it. Our tour guide Robert was amazing! This should be the first thing everyone does that come to London for the first time. You see so much and learn a lot in an hour.

    Thank you for your kind comments on your recent Night Tour of the city, viewing the Christmas Lights, taking in the atmosphere and learning some interesting facts along the way! Being an Open Top bus tour, it is advisable to wrap up against the elements during the winter period, it can certainly get a bit chilly! Thank you for booking with Golden Tours and we hope to see you soon! Best wishes and Happy Holidays! Helen Customer Service Team
