Overview

Enjoy an incredible day out in London with a high-speed boat ride along the River Thames and a 90-minute afternoon tea bus tour for two. You’ll board a high-speed powerboat for a journey down the River Thames, passing by iconic landmarks like Tate Modern and Canary Wharf. Listen to fascinating commentary from the knowledgeable skipper as you whizz across the water. Back on dry land, take a seat on a converted 1960s Routemaster bus for a tour around London accompanied by a delicious afternoon tea spread from Brigit’s Bakery. Sip on freshly brewed tea or coffee and indulge in a selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones as you travel by historic locations like Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. There’s no better way to see the sights of the Capital.

Good but not the best
29 June 2022
A decent Afternoon Tea but not a lot of food. Sandwiches were a little hard but ok to eat. Didn’t like the filling in the pickled roll. Plenty of choice with drinks and a nice touch that you get to take the cup home. I have another of these tours booked in 5 weeks time for 6 people which I need to re-schedule due to unforeseen circumstances but have been told this will cost £10 per person!! I definitely won’t be booking again. Not sure this is worth £44.

Great afternoon

A great afternoon with efficient service and a really knowledgable guide, who gave plenty of interesting info that wouldn't be in the guide books. The booking was easy and Brigit's Bakery provided very prompt and helpful service when contacted. Highly recommend

Nice present

Overall a good experience. Personally would have preferred more savoury sandwiches and less cake. But I have not got a sweet tooth!
