During the real-big Pub Crawl, two cherry-red buses set out in different directions at 9 p.m. starting at Rose & Crown pub (Central Phoenix route) or the Blitz Sports Bar & Grill (Scottsdale route). The rolling shindigs make stops at four bars and raucous music venues before 1 a.m., when the double-decker turns back into a haggis. Drivers are all TIPS certified to help to prevent over-intoxication so guests 21 and older can revel to their heart’s content without jeopardizing their hearts’ contents.
Treasure Hunt tours kick off from and conclude at FilmBar at 1 p.m., shuttling hunters aged 6 and older to downtown Phoenix, Mill Avenue, or Old Town Scottsdale, where they will track down clues until 5 p.m. Complimentary libations and home-brought snacks fuel sleuths as they compete for prizes and strategize onboard the double-decker bus. Since this tour calls for on-foot exercise, Real London Bus Company suggests that guests wear comfortable shoes instead of high heels or clogs made of cement.
Alternatively, the Holiday Light Tour ferries sightseers around Phoenix aboard a bus bedecked in full Christmas regalia to ooh and ahh at seasonal spectacles in either the West or East Valley while sipping cocoa and singing along to holiday tunes and carols.
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.
