Good tour both the recorded guide and the live guide were informative. Currently not all of the stops are stopped at and the bus is intermittent. We weren't told this on booking. We ended up missing out on some of the things we wanted to see and couldn't get to the stops for pickup in the afternoon so walked back and got the tube to places we wanted.

Superb, Fernando down from Euston station was brilliant in explaining it all to us - sat 29 Alieta??? On bus to Tower of London was amazing - service was phenomenal and so well organised. Really enjoyed it - Cruise was a bonus - just 1 grumpy driver from westminstervbridge to abritish museum as we were a bit slow realising it was our stop would definitely recommmend and use service again, it was smashing

Easy, a great way to see the city if you don’t have a long time to visit. Wear the headphones if you don’t have a guide, you learn so much more about the city and can discover other places to visit. The map provided on the bus was easy to use and the employees stationed at each stop were super helpful in answering questions.
