Brilliant experience! Great way to see the top sights quickly and learned a lot about London from the commentary that I never knew. Well worth it.

Well organised and regular busses made it easy to hop on and off. The App was very helpful. Recorded commentary was weak but live commentary from Tiffany was excellent.

The bus tour was a very convenient way to see most of the city. I recommend it if you need to get around to sight see.

All routes and areas taking care of with this hop on hop off. Found all the staff helpful and the knowledge that the guides have is far better then any of the other hop on hop offs I've done all over europe.

Nice touring on top of the big bus going to the different landmarks around London. The bus supplied earphones so we could hear about the history of London. Great being on an open top bus, great views, enjoyable experience

Viator are third-party service to Big Bus tours. Even though we booked and paid early, before Christmas Day, Big Bus demanded a 6 pound premium per person and non-negotiable, this even without live guide, walking tour or short boat cruise on Thames. Appreciate the 25th was a national holiday, but the buses were crammed to capacity and Big Bus would clearly have known the tickets sold. Having done hip-hops in many cities, the Big Bus attitude was by far the worse with minimal courtesy shown. The actual stops were fine but competitor firms are similar. Most disappointed.

London is very congested and kind of dirty. The people there were friendly and helpful. I don’t think I will go back there again.

I have done hop on hop off busses all over Europe,but the London traffic made the trip excruciating. I could have walked faster, which is why the locals all walk.
Guides were good, but few were native English speakers.
