the instructions are not clear enough the meet point she say in second floor look for someone with a sign that he not holding it up , them we left early because he wanted us to leave at 10 am train so he said to go in the 8am train if it was available, he never called the guide in London to let him know that 7 people had left we where going to be there it took us other people in the group an hour to find them so just called out side and look for golden tour bus, also you have make sure to get your tickets on the way back in London before you take off for your tours are trip was cut short two hours , we made the best of it the bus take for ever to pass by in the stops we ended up getting a cab back to the train station.

Not Enough Time - waste of money

The train departure time was an hour and fifteen minutes later than the tour advertised. There wasn’t enough time to do the actual tours in London so it was a waste or money to pay for them all.

Our experience on the Eurostar was great and we were able to meet our guide as soon as we got off the train. The hop on hop off was a bit confusing and it wasn’t explained to us that well. Overall, it was an average experience with the bus tour.

Wonderful Day Trip

My wife and I spent a week in Paris. We took the Day Trip to London. We had a phenomenal day. We took the river cruise down the Thames, ate lunch at Westminister grill, did the Hop on and Off bus seeing all the sights and finished off a great day with afternoon tea. The Viator staff was difficult to find upon departure and we never did find the staff when we arrived in London. We were a bit lost but figured it out. We had a two hour delay returning to Paris due to a death on the tracks. Very sad! We loved this experience and highly recommend it. Buckingham Palace was one of our favorite sights.

Not enough information

When we arrived at the train station, we met up with 2 other confused couples looking for our meeting spot and person to meet. He finally arrived late, hushing us that it would all work out. Anyway, you are given vouchers in an envelope and directed to a train. You are then met at the train station and instructed to meet back at that exact spot at a certain time, to not miss the train. That is understandable. There was not enough time to use all the vouchers. We opted for the Big Bus Tour of London, but with traffic it took almost two hours. I do not think that this tour was worth the money.

Unfortunately, we had problems getting to the meeting site. We tried calling Paris City Vision for help but just got a recording saying everyone was busy and we should call back later. We sent an email and never received a response. Poor customer service.

Terrible company running this tour that never answers their phone or chat to assist customers which caused my family and I to miss the tour and then they refused to refund us our money claiming we were no shows when we needed assistance finding the meet up point!

We went with a family of four. We had soent a week in Paris and thought this would make a great day trip (having done a hop on /hop off tour during our honeymoon en route to Africa). The train was no issue, however, despite showing up at 0725 ( 0730 listed on ticket(, the representative told us we were the last ones and should have been an hour early for the train! This seemed silly that they would not have listed 0715 then....train was no issue. Upon arriving in London, we had a representative meet us, but he was not the most helpful . We got off the stop, Tower of London and we're able to get on the ferry fine. After that we boarded one more time and were able to go to Trafalgar Square. It all went downhill then when we realized that there was really only the one bus and few locations to catch the bus to get us pointed to the station. We walked over 1.5 miles to get us to stop 45 which should have been the right bus and after waiting 20 minutes, another color came by and was not going to the station. We then had to catch a cab. To do over, I would buy Eurostar ahead of time and get a Big Bus tour. We did not get our money's worth!

Trip was fine but I had to pay 23pounds for the entrance of Westminster Abbey while the ticket says it's included.
