Peppa Pig Bus Tour of London absolutely fantastic!

The entire theme was around Peppa Pig, even my 7 year old enjoyed it because it was informative about the sites of London and my 3 year old loved it because it's Peppa Pig!!!! My mum also enjoyed it as the food was really nice and she got to see the nice places in London! A must try for all!!!! The staff were amazing the food was super delicious and you get to take Peppa Pig coffee mugs home, as well as all the food! Well worth the money.

Fun gin fuelled afternoon

Really enjoyed this experience, nice music as you go along, sandwiched and cakes are all fresh and you get scones during the tour. There is a tour guide voiceover so you get more of the tourist side of the experience. And of course the gin, in which you get 3 different glasses across the tour. Hats off to the waiters on the tour as they must find it challenging to serve afternoon tea and drinks on a bus!! Overall we all really enjoyed and would go again for sure.

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.

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.

Amazing, well worth it!

This is a wonderful activity of you have a little one who is a fan of Peppa Pig!
It is expensive however great value for money, there is plenty of food…sandwiches, pizza and a huge amount of cakes and they then bring scones half way round the tour. Adults can also have huge hot drinks and selection of drinks for little ones including hot chocolates in Peppa Pig cups.

The tour is great and takes you around all the familiar sites from the Peppa in London episodes. We were worried about space on the bus (both adults quite tall) but there was plenty of room and plenty of leg room!

The staff are amazing! They work so hard and make the whole tour stress free and enjoyable for the kids.

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!
