We did not have much time to go around London, so we took the "Total London Experience & London Eye" tour. It was a rainy day and we rushed through different sites. Our tour guide Simon was very grumpy and he took every moment to insult the tourists in our group. Tour Guides must bear in mind that tourists come... More

We bought our tickets from the Victoria station location and the Customer service was poor. However the driver was nice, coach comfortable and the trip was good value for money. It's good value for money because it includes entry fee and you avoid having to line up for tickets. I liked that they offered a Stonehenge only tour because I... More

While the places we visited are beautiful and we enjoyed the experience, the tour itself was poorly organised with the guide having almost no knowledge on the places she was taking us. I am forgetting the name of the spanish lady, but i feel while she was trying very hard, she could not share information in an interesting and fun... More

The tour guide we had (KXXXXXX) for the Windsor Castle, Bath & Stonehenge Tour with Entries & Free Snack Pack was rude and pretty unprofessional. Before the tour departed, he embarrassed a poor couple (who were not told about the no hot food or drinks on board) by yelling out 'Who's having chips? It stinks and who would have burgers... More

I started my tour at York Rd. First the guy had no change for £50. I can't believe a sales representative for such a business has no change. Then he sold me the £30 ticket. I learnt shortly later that tickets are also available for £26 but don't include the river cruise. My question is, why didn't your employee tell... More

We took the London by night tour, not the hop on, hop off. I was really disappointed. We went up and down The Strand twice and there were many missed opportunities for narration (I've been on these twice with Big Bus, but it was the first time for my niece). Too much time spent in Southwark with little to see... More

Booked the tour to Winsor castle, bath and stone hedge. We arrived at the meeting point in the morning, got confusing instruction on where to lined up, went in circles where different staff gave us different instructions, one told us to report to the tour office and the other one told us to wait in the line somewhere else. Got... More

This was a really good tour with several different routes. We had a London Pass which allows one day Hop On Hop Off travel. We were able to upgrade the ticket by paying 9 GBP extra per person to extend the duration to a two day hop-on-hop-off pass. We did the complete tour on a couple of routes on the... More

My husband and I took Golden Tours' 'London By Night' and loved it. Bruce was our guide and he was excellent!! He was extremely knowledgeable about London and delivered just the right amount of commentary. This is a great, affordable thing to do at night as this vibrant city begins to light up and offers a beautiful, unique perspective. We... More

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.
