Expeditional provided us with a bespoke service for our group, taking in the London sights from our pick up location to drop off point in a traditional open-top bus. The guide was very knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. Highly recommended.

Fantastic experience driving an old 1962 routemaster bus, organised for fiance as something he's always dreamed of doing. Helpful jolly staff, free tea and coffee while us onlookers were waiting in 'bendy bus' keeping warm! Easy to get to and well signposted.
