The traffic was terrible but it's London, the bus were cold I don't know how the drivers does it all day long and when I found a semi warm one we had to change in the middle of the tour. And I lost a glove in the process.

Went and took the red route with a spectacular guy named Rob, he was really engaged into giving us the best places to go to and his knowledge of the city was great. His jokes and sociable nature made everything about the tour an amazing experience. Definitely recommend!
