The Big Bus operation in London is hands down one of the easiest ways to get around. But what impressed me was how friendly the folks associated with Big Bus were, drivers, commentators on the Red Line (downtown London). Highly recommend this as the best means for moving around to the various London attractions with no fuss and no muss.

We bought a 48-hour ticket which included the bus, a walking tour and a river cruise. There are a total of 4 bus tour routes and we did two of them which took us around most of central and west-central London. We didn't have time to do the walking tour, but talked to others who had done it and they all said great things about it. The river cruise was great and nice way to see London from another perspective with some terrific photo opportunities. If you've never been to London before (or even if you have and just want to enjoy it again), this is a great way to see it.

Even though traffic is horrendous in London, I highly recommend this bus in order to see and hear all of the history behind London's iconic buildings. If you have a voucher make sure you get a printout when you board the bus if you are planning on doing the boat ride later otherwise they will make you go back and get an actual printout.

Overall we had a positive experience with the hop on hop off buses. The buses were clean and comfortable and came frequently. We either had an audio guide or actual person which was helpful. One of our guides, Ian the New Zealander, was particularly funny. We used the buses to either see the sights of London or stop off to go Hyde Park, The Victoria and Albert museum and the London Eye.

The tour was good especially the red line some of the people at the stops were red and they are not clear at the end of the day which stop they are going to . Australian girl that was tour guide was very good.

We were not aware of the timing for the last bus and waited at the stop. There was no indication or information on the last bus timing. After waiting for half hour, we realized bus is not coming - last bus departure time was 6.35pm which was pretty early
