At the souvenir shop
Dad: -Ok, kids. You can both choose one souvenir each from this store.
Kid 1: – But, what if I find two things I want?
Dad: – Then you’ll have to choose one of them.
Kid 1: – But Dad!
Dad: – No buts, now go see if there’s anything you’d like to have.
Kid 2: – Look dad, I’ve found a miniature model of Big Ben.
Dad: – That’s cute. Do you want it?
Kid 2: -I don’t know yet, I want to look some more.
Kid 1: – Dad, I want to buy this red double decker.
Dad: -What a great choice! You loved riding on one yesterday.
Kid 2: – I want one too!
Dad: – Well, go get one.
Kid 1 & 2: – Thanks dad!!!
Dad: – You’re welcome, I’m happy you found such great souvenirs from London.
Mom: – Kids, today we are going to ride the London Eye.
Kids: – Yay!
Kid 1: – I can’t wait.
Kid 2: – It looks scary, I don’t know if I want to go on it.
Dad: – It will be fine, the view is supposed to be amazing.
Mom: – Have we booked the tickets?
Dad: – Yes, I bought fast track tickets online.
Mom: – Great, how much did the tickets cost?
Dad: – £27.95 per ticket.
Kid 1: – That’s a lot of money.
Kid 2: – What time are we going?
Dad: – We need to be there 30 minutes early. There will be a lot of people waiting to get on.
Mom: – So, we’re leaving the hotel in about an hour.
Child: – Mom, can we take one of those red double decker buses?
Mom: – Do you mean the Hop-on and Hop-off buses?
Child: – Yes, they look like a lot of fun.
Mom: – Sure, what a great idea. Let’s stop at one of their booths and buy tickets.
At the ticket booth
Ticket booth attendant: Hello mam, how can I help you?
Mom: – Hi, I’d like two tickets for the Hop-on Hop-off tour.
Ticket booth attendant: – What tour would you like? We have the West End Loop or the Tower Loop.
Mom: – We’d like the West End Loop.
Child: – Mom, does it go passed the palace? I want to see the palace.
Mom: – Yes sweetie, it does.
Ticket booth attendant: – Great choice, it’s a wonderful tour. So, one child and one adult, that will be £19.
Mom: – Here you go.
Ticket booth attendant: – Here’s a map and enjoy your day!
Child: – Thank you!
Dad: – Hi, I’d like tickets for 2 adults and 2 children.
Cashier: – How old are your children?
Dad: – 10 and 12.
Cashier: – Ok, the ticket price for an adult is £35 and for a child £29.50. So that comes to £129.
Dad: – Do you take American Express?
Cashier: – No, sorry. We only take Visa and Mastercard.
Dad: – Ok, I’ll pay with cash instead. Here you go.
Cashier: – Thank you, here’s your change.
Dad: – Thanks!
Cashier: – Enjoy your visit at Madame Tussauds.
Dad: – Honey, should we take a taxi to the show tonight?
Mom: – That sounds like a great idea, it’s pouring outside. The kids won’t want to take the Subway in this weather.
Dad: – You mean the Tube, we’re in London!
Later in the taxi
Taxi driver: – Hello, where can I take you this evening?
Dad: – We’re taking the kids to see the musical Aladdin at Prince Edwards Theatre.
Taxi driver: – Oh, that is a beautiful theatre in the West End.
Dad: – How long will it take to get there?
Taxi Driver: – About 15 minutes.
Dad: – Great!
Taxi Driver: – Here we are. The theatre is to your right. I’m going to turn the car around so you can get out without getting too wet on your way in.
Dad: – Thank you, that’s very nice of you.
Taxi Driver: – £12 please.
Dad: – Here you go, keep the change.
Taxi Driver: – Thank you, sir. Have a nice evening with your family.
