We did the tour on 7 April 2018 and it was the worst tour we ever experienced. You could not blame it on the tour guide. She did her best to play her stupid role as a time traveler but the whole concept is nothing...More

Ok so it's hard to make a London tour "different". This one tries but fell short. If you've never done a tour bus before and have young children it might work. I took my daughter on the ghost bus tour last year (highly recommended) and...More

grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster

Sorry I don't know, when I went on it, there was nothing going on. You're best to contact the company to ask them.
