In London, there are a lot of beautiful sites and monuments to visit such as the Big Ben, Westminster Palace, the London Eye, the Tower of London, Trafalgar Square and many more. For a fun and entertaining way to tour London, we recommend a BUSTRONOME city tour bus where you can have a delicious meal while enjoying a panoramic view of this gorgeous city. Bustronome is a classy and luxurious restaurant on wheels. The tour starts and finishes at Victoria Embankment located next to the Embankment bus stop. After settling down and getting comfortable, let BUSTRONOME lead you on a wonderful and special sightseeing tour through London.
As you can board BUSTRONOME only with a reservation, don't forget to reserve your spot in advance. Also, be aware that bus reservations may be sold out faster for public holidays or special days like Saint Valentine's day. When you get on the bus, check-in. A marvelous panoramic view is waiting for you on the second floor. All sides of the bus, including the ceiling, are made of transparent glass so you can have a clear view of the city from wherever you are on the bus.
BUSTRONOME London offers lunch and dinner service. You can enjoy a 4-course meal for lunch and a 6-course dinner in the evening. You can also have wine for an extra charge that you need to book in advance. The menu changes depending on seasonal food. You can check their web site to review the menu in advance and to reserve your spot. Additionally, if you have a particular allergy or problem to certain ingredients, the chef will consider your concerns.
Also, depending on your choice of whether you're there for lunch or dinner, there is a slight difference in the bus route. Commonly, the journey starts from Victoria Embankment and passes through St Paul’s Cathedral, London Eye, Westminster Palace, and Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, The Shard, City Hall, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, and returns to the starting point. During the evening route, Trafalgar square, Picadilly circus, Cambridge house, Hyde Park Corner, Harrods, Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum and Royal Albert Hall are added.
With BUSTRONOME London, you can enjoy the guided tour while sitting comfortably, and without worrying about the weather. There will be a menu and journey guide on your table for you to follow along. With the electronic pen, you can select your language (French, English, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese or Portuguese) and you will have access to a detailed description of history and culture of each attraction while enjoying the view.
Since London is known for its rainy weather, the weather might be one of the worries for trips in London. However, with Bustronome London, you can enjoy the perfect view with the most comfortable seat whether it rains or not. You can take memorable photos with your family or friends while sharing a great meal. There is also soft and classy music played throughout the tour which fits the exclusive atmosphere and both the historical and modern views.
Once you have your seat, the best moment of your sightseeing in London starts. At first, you will enjoy a beautifully decorated appetizer of smoked fish with fresh cream sauce. This colorful plate brings you the joy of various textures and perfect harmony of fresh fish and creamy sauce. The smoky smell and savory taste are well concentrated in these pieces of fish. In particular the eel we tried was excellently cooked with a bit of sweetness and its light oil. It is the perfect appetizer to whet your appetite.
The next plate is salted cheesecake made with tomato and flavored cheese. On the side, there is both a sweet and bitter onion paste and a fresh yellow pepper dressing. These are healthy while they also have their characteristic and distinct taste. When you combine them, you can truly savour the art of cuisine.
The main dish came right after the cheese dish. This cuisine is called Ballotin. The flavorful lamb paste is rolled with the light chicken slice. The light taste of Ballotin is a good match with the rich tasty sauce. It comes with crushed peas which are very often served in the UK. You can enjoy British food with the freshness and a sweetness of peas.
The dessert is also essential. This is a strawberry and case mousse with vanilla ice cream and berries sauce. The creamy soft mousse has a fresh berry taste, and vanilla ice cream adds a delicious sweetness. The red sauce and crunches on the plate are a joyful whiff of freshness and texture.
Special equipment is provided so that the glasses don't fall over, helping you to fully enjoy the fantastic view and a great meal with your friends or family. The Bustronome experience with its marvelous view and sophisticated cuisine will surely stay an unforgettable memory of your trip in London.
