Unfortunately, the staff in London had no clue about our booking confirmation. We had to wait for 20 minutes until we knew if we were even allowed to take the bus. If you have a London Pass you can get the tour for half of the price.
It was a bit complicated to find the right bus, but then the tour was amazing!
