REDISCOVER YOUR LOVE FOR LONDON WITH YONDA, PARK LANE
Yonda is the brand new way to discover the history and beauty of our excellent city. My colleague Georgie and I decided to venture out of the office to see what all the fuss was about last week. I have to report that since the tour, we have fallen in love with London all over again!
Tourists and residents can enjoy the Yonda experience any day of the week. The customised (and totally cute) Smart car talks to you like a friend would over a drink - it's a fabulously unique experience! Starting in Mayfair's Park Lane, the route takes you on a tour of the city, guiding you through Mayfair, the cobbled streets of Seven Dials, the heart of Soho, up close and personal to London's spectacular buildings and down the Mall to Buckingham Palace.
The car's commentary is concise, interesting, historical and fun! Georgie and I were utterly ashamed at our lack of knowledge surrounding certain buildings, monuments and landmarks, but very relieved to finally be 'in the know'. If you were partial to shutting your ears during history at school, this is the refresher course that will keep you gripped and get you up to speed.
We were smart enough to bring a Go Pro, which made for an absolute thrill ride à la Paris and Nicole in The Simple Life! The convertables on offer allow you to film through the roof, but since we booked the 4 seater, I decided to film out the windows. A hilight of the tour was when we stopped at the traffic lights outside Fortnum & Mason and the door guy tipped his hat at us and smiled and waved - it doesn't get more quintessentially British than that!
I'd recommend this tour for friend groups (cars can seat up to 4 people), dates (nothing says romance like sharing laughter and knowledge) and for a trip with a family member you'd like to catch up with (great bonding experience). The tour also improves your confidence with driving through London!
