Wikipedia will was amazing!!! It’s people like him that make these experiences fantastic! His knowledge was phenomenal and his sunny disposition and anecdotes made a very cold trip that much more enjoyable. Will needs a promotion! Training some of the other guides on the best way to inform and educate on London’s history. The tour guides on the bus are a refreshing change to a pre recorded track however the quality of these vary strongly. In saying that the bus tours themselves are great with convenient locations and lots of stops. The buses were pretty busy but the high frequency means you don’t have to wait long.

Really enjoyed our trip to London and our package we purchased. We wanted to do the London Eye and hop on hop off bus - the river cruise was an additional extra thrown in and ended up being the highlight. We ended up walking most of the way around the city, only using the bus twice - both times to go just one stop. Magnificent views from the London Eye - but the cruise was just wonderful. We went from Tower Bridge to Westminster. The guy speaking was really funny and the facts super interesting. The baileys hot chocolate on board also delicious. Would absolutely recommend.

A great way to hit the highlights of London, either to get oriented for a trip of several days, or when you just have a very limited amount of time. Bus was comfortable, guide was knowledgeable, and there were plenty of opportunities to get on and off. It was easy to get the tickets online, and the mobile ticket scanned easily and effortlessly. There was a live guide on one audio channel, and recorded tour highlights in many languages on other audio channels. The guide supplied decent enough earphones.

The option of having the tour narrated by a real person sitting on bus was great! The routes hit all the main landmarks. The Thames River cruise was included which was narrated by a hilarious crew member! I would definitely book the bus and river cruise again!

Easy to get the tickets online and clear direction to get to the meeting point. Good and interesting explanation onboard the bus. Ending at 4pm is too early. Would be good to also enjoy the city tour and lights in the night.
