Superb experience

Booked this as a surprise for my daughter before seeing a London show. What an overall amazing experience. From getting on the bus to leaving the bus it was worth every penny, driving around London seeing the key sights and the food was gorgeous. We had the vegetarian and they were varied and fresh. Giving a little box to take home uneaten sandwiches/cakes was genius as it was more than it looked. The staff were so friendly and helpful and I highly recommend this and we will do it again.

Excellent. Exciting. Interesting. Fun. Just right!

Thank you, we had a wonderful family outing with you on the Peppa Pig afternoon tea bus tour. Perfect staging, clean, comfortable, COVID safe and entertaining. Keeping a bunch of sugar rushed toddlers entertained is no mean feet! Food was delicious. The cakes and savouries were gorgeous to look at and delicious. The sites, across London, were fab and along with the Peppa interactive entertainment and mini screen at our table meant our little girl related to it from characters, songs, episodes and the information provided by the mini screen and Mel. Well worth the money - what an experience!

Afternoon Tea in LaLa Land

Our friends booked me and my wife this treat for my birthday and it was excellent, nice food great service one and half hour of travelling around London with good commentary of the sites in between listening to nice xmas carols, really do go into la la land. would recommend this trip to any age group.

Fantastic service, good food and altogether good day out!

Booked the Peppa Pig Afternoon Tea Bus Tour and it was amazing! Great food, great customer service and an all round great time for my four year old, myself and my mum. Great energy from staff members and the food was unreal. Would highly recommend for a good day out to see all the main sites of London and even better for my Peppa Pig obsessed daughter.

Everything delicious and fantastic service

The coffee was fantastic one of the best coffees I have had in a while. And that’s just the beginning. Then had the Paris tea which was delicious and a chocolate taste which was amazing. The service was 10/10 very friendly helpful and attentive. This place is a delight. Will want to try their afternoon tea offer next time it looked great.

Fantastic Birthday Gift

I booked this for 5 Adults for my sisters 40th Birthday - and have to say it was amazing!! The food was delicious, the selection of drinks too, and the attention to detail was so cute! You got to keep the hot tea flasks that drinks were served in - and they gave out little pink takeaway boxes for any spare cakes! As it was my sisters birthday they brought out a cake with a candle and we all sung happy birthday! I will be highly recommending this to my friends!
