Holiday Light Tour on Double-Decker London Bus

I have wanted to do this event every holiday season, so this year we are going to do it!  This is a Christmas holiday light tour on a double-decker Real London Bus!  I spoke with the owner and he is going to give us a 50% discount, so it will only cost us $25 per person, and please bring CASH with you!

The bus will be decorated all 'Christmassy', holiday music will be playing and complimentary hot chocolate is provided. We also are allowed to bring some supplies for the journey.  They will be providing hot choc but if you want cookies, coffee, beer or wine etc you need to bring your own.  HOWEVER - this is a general public family orientated event.  You may only bring small amounts as space is limited and you must remain respectful of others.  They reserve the right to refuse entry if this isn't followed.

The bus drives to 3 or 4 different locations, mainly big neighborhood displays.  At each location we stop and let everyone off the bus.  Stretch your legs, refill your hot choc, walk around and check out the lights.  20 minutes later - everyone back on the bus and off to the next display.

"This is a drivin', walkin', talkin' kinda tour" 

Each tour last approximately 2.5 hours.  7pm - 9.30pm

West Valley tour starts & finishes in the Walmart parking lot on 35th Ave and Bethany Home Rd.

Tours start at 7pm and finish approx 9.30 pm.

Please arrive at 6:30 pm to ensure adequate time for parking and registration.  We are sharing the bus with the general public so please get there early so we all can ride the bus together.  Bus departs soon after 7pm.

Free parking is available in the Walmart parking lot.

Also, seating is limited for this event so please do NOT RSVP until you know for sure you can go. Canceling within 72 hours is considered very rude as the company is not making us put up a deposit.

    From the London Bus Company: As of right now - we are going to make every effort to CONTINUE tonight's WEST valley tour as planned.
    The only exception to this will be if it is pouring with rain @ 6pm on the westside. Under these circumstances tour will be cancelled.
    Cloudy skies or drizzle will continue the tour!

    Lisa: I will send a message to everyone at 6:00 pm if I find out that the tour is cancelled. Otherwise, I will see everyone at 35th Ave and Bethany Home in the Walmart parking lot at 6:30 pm!! Let's keep our fingers crossed that it holds off the rain until after the tour!

      No worries about that; I actually have reservations for 35, so we are still within that range. I appreciate you letting me know and if things change and you can make it, you can still show up!

    Can I add 2 more guests to my RSVP?

    November 30, 2012

    • Lisa

      Sure, no problem; just please make sure that all of you will be able to make it that evening. I have to give the bus owner a head count and he is going to reserve those seats for us so if people don't show up, he will lose money on the unoccupied seats. This is going to be a fun event!
