Just terrible- don’t do it!

This was the absolute pits. Firstly when we went to the office as instructed to find that our 7pm tour had been cancelled and that we were booked on the 8 pm and they had sent us an email - no they didn’t. As the 8 pm that night didn’t suit us we negotiated to go the following evening. Well, Phil the guide‘s commentary was absolutely boring and spoke of landmarks way before we got anywhere near them, he laughed as his own jokes (I guess someone had too). That fact that he showed unprofessionalism when blowing a raspberry and being derogatory to his country’s government out site the UK Tax Office especially given that all participants were foreigners was appalling. To top it off the tour finish almost 30 minutes early. I must admit this was a bit of a relief as we had already wasted over an hour of our life on this terrible tour.

Thank you for your feedback. We certainly never wish any customers to leave disappointed with any products and services we provide. Unfortunately due to low demand it may be on the rare occasion that tours are cancelled, we do not take the decision lightly and will always contact customers on the details provided at the time booking. We appreciate all feedback received and your comments have been passed to our Operations manager to review and discuss with the guide in question. Thank you.

Left hotel with plenty of time, however the tubes were not displaying correct info causing a lot of confusion. Got off at Victoria Station but couldnt find 4 Fountain Square as shown on directions. No-one knew where it was. Missed it altogether. Allow loads of time to find it if new to London.

I called to confirm the departure location and was told it would be at Victoria Coach Station. There was no one there from the tour company. There were buses for other tour companies on the street, but not Golden. Time running out, I called again and talked to same person who then guided me across the busy street up long stairs and down a hallway to Golden Tours. They were closed. We were exhausted. Then, ahead in a dark passageway was the bus. There were no more outside seats so we sat undercover. The windows were so dirty you could not take photos. We drove the route quickly. The guide would point out good photo ops but the bus never slowed enough to give you a view.

Simon our guide brought London alive with his commentary. The tour was very good and covered a lot of ground. It rained but the complimentary ponchos kept us dry. This tour is well worth the money -I had family from abroad with me and they thought it was "brilliant" and "very good"

die Rundfahrt mit den Sehenswürdigkeiten waren super. Leider gibt es nur einen englisch sprechenden Tourführer. Leider spricht er nicht langsam, so das wir es verstanden hätten. Die Steckdose mit den Kopfhörer haben nicht funktioniert.
