"As you will see in the videos I posted to YouTube under AlexErikaSanDiego the London pass was a must have. We only had 4 days in London and we did EVERYTHING. We saved HOURS and bypassed SO many lines with the London pass. I know it sounds like I'm really pushing this pass but it really helped us save money as well as time."
