Better off doing it yourself

27 May 2013 - 29 May 2013

If you are a very nervous solo traveler, than this might be the tour for you. Everything is already arranged and paid for.

with that said, if you're comfortable making the arrangements to see London yourself, I suggest you do that instead. The Hop-On Hop-Off Bus tour is a great, easy way to get an intro to the city, but you can easy book it yourself. The options for the West End musical were poor and I would have rather paid a little more, done it myself, and have gotten a better experience. Similarly, with the 'hotel' included in the tour, the Royal National. I am aware that hotels in London are expensive, but I would have never chosen Royal National for myself after staying there two nights.

Bottom line: I was a solo traveler and I wish I had arranged my London visit on my own terms.
