Delicious and Fun!

Reviewed by: Doreen , 2018/05/31

This was our 2nd trip to London and I was researching for something fun and different to do. High tea is a must in London and it was so nice to tour around the city while doing so!

We met at the Victoria Bus Station and the tour started promptly right on time. The tables are pre-assigned and I wish we had gotten a table on the top deck. All the pastries and sandwiches were all delicious! The best was the egg salad sandwich and the round like pastry with cream filling. The pre-recorded audio guide would tell you when a tourist attraction is coming up with a brief history. I like how the bus does not drive too fast, so at times you can even walk/catch a Pokemon on your phone!

For safety reason, your hot drinks is served in plastic cup with a closed tight lid that is your souvenir to take home. They also have water and the waiter/waitress will come around if you want a 2nd hot drink. Do save room for scones with clotted cream! yum yum!

We did this tour in late May and it was quite a warm day. Dress accordingly because there's no AC on the bus. All the delicious food are from B-Bakery in Covent Garden and I wish we had time to visit the actual store for more goodies!

Great Afternoon to spend with a friend

Reviewed by: Alessia , 2018/02/26

Me and my friend decided to spend an afternoon on top of the bus, we wanted to try something different and I think the Bus combined with an english afternoon tea is the perfect match. We could sit on the bus while sipping a cup of tea! we also went around London on this double decker bus and delighted ourselves admiring popular sites and savouring macaroons, mini cupcakes, pastries, scones, sandwiches and mini quiche.

Food good but lots of room for improvement

Reviewed by: Alison, 2015/04/30

Impressed with the quantity and standard of food but my friends comments were that a French guide wasn't very authentic and he didn't explain the sights very much at all. the experience could have been much improved with a cockney guide in vintage costume. Also disappointing that music playing was current and not from same era as bus. Wouldn't take much effort to make it a better vintage experience.

The most original afternoon tea in London

Reviewed by: Monika, 2015/04/13

I found this tour when I was looking for something fun to do for me and my family during their visit in London. This must be the most original and crazy tour in London - and a brilliant idea to combine two most british icons into one - afternoon tea and a red double decker bus. All cakes, cupcakes, sandwiches and scones were delicious and of good quality. And most importantly a lot of it - we even got a doggy bag after the tour. It was really great to enjoy afternoon tea while driving around London's biggest highlights. If you are looking for an unforgettable experience in London, this tour is for you.

Great way to see the sites of London whilst enjoying afternoon tea and bubbles!

Wonderful time! Great afternoon tea. The scones and cream at the end were my favourite so make sure you leave some space. You can take your own wine or champagne onboard so we also enjoyed some bubbles!
