See the sights the easy way. This is a well organized bus tour with onboard headphones and / or a live commentator. Maps are readily available and easy to figure out. The busses are marked different colors to help identify the routes. Also included in the price is a river cruise and a walking tour. We rode all the routes and did the river cruise

It was a great pleasure to see London on the Big Bus. The stops are in convenient locations. The buses run very often--We never had to wait longer than 5-6 minutes. The commentary is easy to follow and rich in information. It is a great deal!

Then we went back to spend time at various stops. The audio guide is helpful as well as the actual tour guide comments. Worth the money.

We only had one day to visit London. The tour is a great way to get a fell of the city and to see areas that you might not usually get to. The stops are usually with the bus stops; you have to locate them on the poles--Stop locator says "Big Bus". We rode the red line and had a great commentator. The Big Bus goes along the side of Buckingham Palace, so if you want to see the entrance- you have to get off to get that picture. The additional river tour was a nice treat. It was a drizzly day in January we took this tour.

Just had time for the Red line but it covered a great amount of London and the live tour guide was great.

The hop-on hop-off bus experience was a pretty good experience. It was great that they provided headphones and maps for you when you boarded the bus. It would have been nicer if the tour guide explained things a little bit more though. We had several tour guides during our trip and they all seemed to be the same.

It was good, but it seemed like some of the other bus tours had buses running more frequently at stops. If I were to do it again I’d pick the Original bus or Golden tours. If you are going in winter bus tours are not heated and it can be quite cold so layer up.

The bus tour and the river cruise itself was nice. One of the conductors would not accept the
app on my phone and insisted that I go to the internet café and print off the booking when your website said it was fine to upload onto your phone.
