Founded by a pair of British friends nostalgic for authentic memories of the motherland, Real London Bus Company fetes sightseeing enthusiasts throughout the Phoenix area in an authentic English double-decker bus. Unfurl sails for landborne exploration with the Treasure Hunt tour, a midday adventure through downtown Phoenix, Mill Avenue, and Old Town Scottsdale spent deciphering clues and performing tasks at each of the three areas. This family-friendly tour welcomes trailblazers of all ages with winning teams snagging prizes, ideal for displaying on fireplace mantels or cryogenic refrigerators. The Real Big Pub Crawl sates spirited singles and carousing couples with myriad sips from four different bars in the central Phoenix corridor. Single passengers up the amorous ante on the Double Decker Date Night tour, where 35 of the bus's 70 seats are filled, and riders are asked to fill the empty spots with dates or floor-to-ceiling mirrors picked up at lively downtown bars and clubs.
Tours are not available in June, July, and August due to excessive heat.

About Real London Bus Company
The two British buddies who dreamt up Real London Bus Company imported authentic London-style double-decker buses to shuttle guests around the city. With a fleet of four busses that can ferry up to 65 passengers each, they operate assorted tours throughout the area—including pub crawls to local dives and treasure hunts that explore downtown Phoenix, Mill Avenue, and Old Town Scottsdale—with the help of knowledgeable though decidedly nonandroid guides. They also make their busses available for special events such as proms, weddings, girls' nights out, or charters for corporate occasions, including past clients Go Daddy and Coors Light.
