Climb aboard our Victorian horse-drawn omnibus for a tour of London like no other. The tours which are operated on a fully restored eighteen-seater horse-drawn omnibus - with indoor and rooftop seating – are the perfect way to enjoy the vibrancy of the World’s Greatest City. With the steady sound of horse-hooves in your ears, look around and enjoy London at a leisurely, camera friendly pace.
