      Loved our guide!
      I cannot imagine a more knowledgeable and charming tour guide than Sheila! She answered our random questions about Cotswolds foliage, the monarchy, etc—she’s smart, patient, and funny, has the best Scottish accent ever, and puts everything into great perspective. Our driver, Bill, was terrific and SO good at navigating the tiny back roads. The Cotswolds themselves were lovely. I wish we’d planned more time there! It was a great introduction, thanks to Sheila and Bill. Got lots of great pix and some perfect souvenirs. We hope to come back for a real stay!

      Day Tour from London to Stonehenge, Windsor Castle & Bath
      Our tour guide named Godfrey was very informative and had a great sense of humor….he was very good at explaining our time crunch and when to meet back at the bus and that if we weren’t back on time, that we would be left. The bus and guide tour was great, and Godfrey was a great tour guide. He told us stories and cracked jokes during our long rides from Windsor Castle to Stonehenge and then from Stonehenge to Bath. We also had a great bus driver as well named Hammed? This tour was on April 19th. Hope that helps and we were the group leaving from gate 3 from Victoria Coach station.

      Rowan did a great job! Brings historical facts to life. Brings up little known facts one simply doesn't think about when viewing architectural wonders. Highly recommend her to anyone! I was with the flor Hoffman party.

      Our lovely experience at Leeds Castle, Dover and the Magnificent Canterbury
      Rowan was our tour guide and she was super great. She was very friendly and made us very welcome. She explained very clearly on the sights and the history of the church. She even joked in between and the tour was very lively and very informative. And thanks to our driver Alex, our road drive was smooth and timely. Thank you Rowan and Alex. Will definitely book our future tours with Evan Evans Tours.

      Fantastic guide, great driver, and amazing trip to discover British history.
      Tour guide, Rowan, provided great commentary along with great sense of humor. Driver, Alex, was friendly and efficient and the drive was smooth as could be. The scenery we encountered was amazing as well. This was an excellent day trip to learn of British history and see beauty as well.

    We were really looking forward to this tour, especially because it was around Christmas time and we were excited about seeing the light all around the city, while also learning and seeing about the many landmarks. Being up top in the back, uncovered part of the bus is the best way for anyone to see the things we're looking forward to seeing, but the issue is that they don't have speakers built back there, and the speakers that are at the very front of the bus aren't loud enough for anyone past the 3rd row to hear anything. We feel that we were really cheaped out when it came to the "tour" part because we know there was a tour guide who was talking about a lot of what we were driving by, but there was no way for us to hear it unless we obstructed our view. It was highly disappointing.

    We had only a bit over a day to spend in London but wanted our kids to see some of the major sights that we wouldn’t have time to visit. We chose this tour based on the ratings and the fact that there would be a live guide rather than an audio recording. We also chose the 9:15pm slot so that the temperature would go down a bit and we’d be on board during the transition from late evening sun to twilight. It was the perfect choice! The tour included many highlights and the guide was both informative and very witty. Our kids were thrilled to see many well-known spots and were even more thrilled that they didn’t have to walk, lol. If you are looking for a night tour - this is the one!

    The tour guide made this sightseeing trip a very enjoyable experience. He was informative, witty, and very British! We saw more than I was expecting and it was an easy and enjoyable way to see a lot of famous London landmarks. The meeting place was very easy to get to by tube and I liked that it returned you to the same starting point. I took off one star because the onboarding process was a bit disorganized, but overall it was a great experience at a decent price and I would definitely recommend it!

    Perfect tour of the beautiful city! Weather was perfect and our tour guide Kevin was very knowledgeable on everything. Along with being so knowledgeable about the history Kevin made sure to get to know us (the attendees) and joke around with us. We were the puertorican gangsters lol. Special shout-out to Nayim our bus driver for driving so safely and slowing down at specific locations so we can take the best pictures. Thank you!!

    Tour at night was just spectacular with the beautiful lights and city of London busting with activities. Our guide was entertaining us with facts and corny jokes, while entertaining just with reals facts about the architecture of different places and statues. Highly recommend this tour and you’ll learn so much in 1.5 hours about London.

    Slightly delayed review but what a brilliant exprience. Despite the deluge of rain and drenched students at the end we had a wonderful trip thanks to Matthew and his driver. Mathew had a world of knowledge and was extremely entertaining. Our students loved him and his little French contributions in song and spoken commentary. Thank you so much for a fun first night in London. They loved the rain and they loved you !

    Do not over book the trip and have seats that can see both left and right sides outside of the bus which was not the case this trip. We got onto the bus after walking 2 miles, only to be placed in a seat that could not see out the right side. Our view was completely blocked and we were lower so the left side was not easy, either. If you are going to book this trip be very careful and dont get the seats we did. We paid money to just ride around and not see much which was very disappointing. The photo shows the view to the right side.

    We didn't have access to a printer as tourists in London so couldn't physically print the tickets off. We were told we would not be allowed on the bus and we were not allowed a refund. Absolutely dreadful. Lost £76 from our family budget and our 5 year old twins were so upset.
