Love the Day trip! Totally worth it!
5/5
Great day trip from Paris. The representative met us at Gare du Nord and gave us the tickets and then there was a person waiting on us when we got to London and escorted us to the Hop on- Hop off bus...A boat ride and walking tour is also included... We bought tickets to attractions like Tower of London and The Shard, which in hind site was not enough time. Stick with the Hop on- Hop off tour and boat ride. There was a little problem with tickets for the bus but Paris City Vision resolved the issue. Overall, good way to visit London in a day.

It was a really good tour, I wish I could stay longer in London
5/5
The train arrived in London around 9:45am local time. I believe I saw every major landmark there was to see on my day trip to London from Paris! The bus had a few different lines that you could take all over the city and hop on and off at your leisure. It was a full day, having to arrive at Gare du Nord at 7:15am and not returning until 11:30pm. But it was a day well spent!
4/5
I enjoyed the trip and meeting the representative both in Paris and London was simple. Personally, I felt the tour map (once in London) was a bit confusing. If you plan on walking around and picking up on a different stop, you may need a proper map. Start with the live tour and if you take off on your own path, be mentally prepared to take a cab back to the Train Station. If on a week day, you can get caught up in rush hour traffic so keep that in mind.

great
4/5
It was a great day in London. The instructions however were unclear so we ended up at the meeting spot at the train station over an hour early. They also misprinted the return time an hour early, but we caught the error which was good so we could spend the most time site-seeing. Keep an eye out for hop-on hop-off last pick-ups as we had to get a taxi back to the train station because the last pick up never showed up so after waiting a half hour we had no choice but to taxi to the station in order to catch our train back to Paris. My feedback in summary is for them to be more thorough and also I would ask any and all questions to be clear about the day before going.
