It was rather fun to be in the bus going around the major sites. The tour is pretty popular. Because the main route from the centre is booked up, I took the only available ones which is a new route that departs from Victoria Coach Station.

The plusses:
+ Fun
+ Cakes was good
+ Got a travelling coffee mug that is pretty cute with illustration on it
+ Sunny day (obviously it has nothing to do with the bus tour responsibility)
+ Got to show-off to tourist on a regular bus tour of our cakes and tea
+ On a cool old London Routemaster Double decker – Love these!!
+ Seeing sights from a different angle, behind cakes… hahahaha

– This one is a minor complain, the bus didn’t have a proper storage. So they store everything in a horrible plastic boxes that customer could see the tea packages, used boxes, used plastic bags, slightly unpleasant.
– It is kinda dissapointing that the cakes are already there on our tables when we arrive, so there is no excitement to see what the cakes are. But completely understand the practicality of them having to do this.😄
