Tony

This tour was a good way to see a lot of London sights and familiarizing ourselves with the city. We were able to get to some of ...our tours from our hotel utilizing the hop on hop off bus by signing up for the 48 hour tour. The boat cruise was very enjoyable also. more

janice

Nice way to visit London

Nelly Petrea Isabella Amoi

NOT EASY TO FIND A BUS STOP, UNLESS YOU LEFT THE BUS THERE! BUT A VERY GOOD TRIP WITH INFORMATIVE NARRATIVE

JOHN

It was nice experience.The Bus stops were close to our hotel and all nice and interesting places in London.We were happy and we re...commend it. more

Iliana

We enjoyed the routes and the schedule used by the buses.

Ademir

Great way to cover a large area in short time allowing you to pick what/ where you want to spend more time. Service very regular a...nd drivers very helpful and friendly. Only problem was the timing of the information coming through the headphones which, constantly went out of sync probably due to traffic congestion. more

Betty

Not as frequent as the other big 2

John

Buses often make long stops so employees can try and sell tickets to other events/exhibits. Definitely need a whole day (or two),... to do this! more

Courtney

We where there the week before Easter and it was cold. In the bus was no heating and we were frozen when we came out of the tour. ...The tour was very good, Explanation was what we expected only the comfort in the bus was below level and therefore the price to high. more

Henri

bus stops very poorly marked but great trip

michael

The tour was good, but the buses were less frequent. We had to wait for a much longer time, and there were other buses more freque...nt that would just drive past us. more

Leah

This is a great way to see the city, however I wished the bus would have run longer. The hours were 9:00 - 4:00, which really isn...'t enough time to ride an entire loop, much less hop on/off. more

Marie

It is good if you go for the first time, it's a little slow and the buses don't come too often, specially when the servi...ce is ending. I couldn't get the river cruise, is needed more information where to pick up the tickets and the free walkings too. It was ok. more

María Paula

Tour was Okay, in terms of the guides and staffs friendliness, BUT it consumed most of our time. The bus was never on time! It was... slow and took us forever to find the bus signs as it was soooo small! It finished early as well so you cannot maximize yoru time in London we ended up taking the subway just to get from one place to the next faster more

Anne

i do not recommend it, interval between one bus and the next is too long, around 40 minutes.

Eduardo

we got really little information about attractions by your audio system.
