Why choose Sightseeing Tours London?
We only work with the leading London Tours Supplier in the UK to give you the best tours at great value, with over 70 years of experience, we believe Evan Evans Tours offers you the best that Britain can offer. They were voted " The UKs best coach operator for 2003 ." and the coaches they use are top of the range and of course are comfortable and air-conditioned. We have been given exclusive rates with Evan Evans and believe they will give you fantastic service on your tour whilst we give you an excellent price and service online which is why we have sent thousands of customers on tours with them in the Summer of 2009 and we are looking forward to continuing this for 2010.

How do I get my tickets?
If you book and pay for a ticket online, we will sent you a confirmation within 24 hours by email. This ticket will be valid for travel on your tour or for admission to the particular attraction.

The price on my confirmation voucher is more than what I paid, will I be charged more?
We do offer discounts on many of our tours, if you book a discounted tour the voucher will always show the full price but you will not be charged any more than originally shown to you and this will be confirmed on your payment receipt from us. Like we have said, the price you see on the site is the price you pay!

Can I book a tour for tomorrow?
We are not able to take online bookings for the following day, but you can call Evan Evans Tours directly on 020 7950 1777 and check availability. Unfortunately you will miss out on any discounts as these are specific to online bookings through the London Sightseeing Tours website.

Most tours do not include lunch - the only exception is "The Enchanting Cotswolds and Blenheim Palace" which includes a light lunch in the village of Burford. The "Discovering London" and "Leeds Castle, Canterbury and Dover" tours have the option for lunch, but this is not included in the tour price. For the other tours, we recommend that you bring sandwiches although you should have time to purchase something to eat at most of the stops.

Where will I get dropped off at the end of my tour?
Our Morning tours finish in either Trafalgar Square or Victoria. For our full day tours we offer convenient returns. Our guides will find out where everyone is staying in London, while on tour. Then they will plan a route through London that is convenient for you, or advise you how to take the Underground or Bus services back to your hotel.

Morning tours finish no later than approximately 1.30pm. All our full day coach based tours should be finished by no later than 7pm. Traffic permitting. Our train tours return between 8pm and 10pm.
