Birthday treat

What a fab afternoon tea including gin, my husband brought this as a birthday present and we all throughly enjoyed it.
We had a table upstairs with great views of London. The sandwiches and cakes were delicious.I will definitely say I would do this tour again

Brilliant gin bus!

Such a wonderful time - the food was so much better than we’d expected!! The cocktails were lovely too.. really needed the loo but there was 1 as soon as you got off. The Xmas decorations made it extra special and very memorable!

WOW .. What an amazing experience

Gin lovers you can't go wrong with this... And the fun doesn't stop there, your afternoon Gin tea, takes place on a vintage London route master bus while taking in some of the most famous sites of London.

Gin cocktails and afternooon tea

Fab afternoon. 3 different gin cocktails, great selection of sandwiches and rolls, beautifully delicious pastries and tarts followed by warm scone cream and jam. Tour bus had commentary and Glauce and Sarah were the perfect hostesses. Great afternoon for me and my niece . Thank you.

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.
