    Great experience, great fun, and really helped us get into the Christmas spirit! Staff were attentive and lovely, and between the blankets and mulled wine we were plenty warm enough despite riding on an open-top roof bus on a cold winters day. Would recommend this to anyone looking for something slightly different to do at Christmas, definitely the best way to see the lights!

    Had the nicest, friendliest staff on our tour who made sure our mulled wine was always topped up and got us blankets and christmas hats. Seeing the lights up close along Regent Street and Oxford Circus was nice, but may I suggest going around the big Christmas installations/shop displays along Mayfair as well? This would be feasible as our tour starts at St. James's which isn't far off. I felt that the first half of the tour was spent going around in circles along Waterloo which was not what I paid for.
