Quote from the email we received together with the ticket for this trip: "A luxury bus ride with air conditioning". Really? For two whole hours, we sat in a stuffy bus without air conditioning and air. Our repeated requests to the driver encountered: "There is a problem with the air conditioning system" Before we returned to London, at Stonehenge parking... More

Ordered tickets for my daughters 4th birthday and in the small print told you have to go to Madame Tussaud's to collect the tickets. So should really be large print. Anyway then have to wait in the queue for 1 hour to pick up the tickets and the people on the door were so unhelpful. Thanks for ruining my daughters... More

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry to read of the delays you encountered. In bold and large letters, on all customers tickets, when purchasing the Combination Ticket, including the 4 attractions it clearly states for all customers to visit Madame Tussaud's first to collect all tickets. This is a specification from the suppliers and not ourselves. If you... More

Our tour guide, Dominic, was fabulous. He gave us such interesting descriptions and tidbits of information that made historical London come alive. There were some rather loud folks who were disruptive, and made listening to him difficult and he told them firmly and politely to be quiet, which I appreciated to no end.

This tour is great, allowed us to visit various places in a short amount of time. Which was perfect since I was just in England for three days! I could have spent a full day, if not more, at each one of these locations had I had the time. Therefore I found this tour be ideal. The best thing about... More

It was a pleasure to read your comments on your recent tour and of course your Guide Antonio. We understand that of course, trying to visit these wonderful location in one day, cannot always give enough time to all, but it is a great overview for customers to see the locations and then re-visit at their own time and leisure...

It is a pretty long tour and lot of places to cover, nonetheless enjoyable! Our tour guide, Nigel is very knowledgble and provided a lot of useful information. Our driver is also very helpful, unfortunately I did not managed to get his name, sorry! The places we visited are very popular and crowded (unfortunely), hence overall most of the time... More

We went on a full day tour of London on Sunday, March 12th. Zozo was knowledgeable, funny, interesting, and willing to work with the group. Our tour was a small group (13 of us in the morning). Zozo was able to take us on a couple of VERY interesting side trips, and always knew more information when asked a question.... More

Graham is the man! We appreciated his insight and extensive background on each of the locations we visited. We also appreciated his humor and recommendations.

After much reading of the good and bad reviews of Golden Tours, we still go ahead to book the tour to Winsor castle, Stonehenge and Roman Bath on 13 March 2017.

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
