  • Don't waste your time & money on this! Terrible service, we spent more time waiting at bus stops than anything else! Would have rather spent my money on a taxi to take me round London...

  • Recorded commentary is OK, but I agree with other reviews, we spent much more time waiting for the bus than on the bus itself. One bus stop had a sign advising it was out of service, and after 20 minutes waiting in Embankment someone turned up and said to us "oh, I have been the whole time (clearly not visible, as I had tried to find them) and the buses are not stopping here today, you have to cross the river (even though Big Bus and Golden Tours had apparently no problem to stop there)". Quite a poor service, go for the other companies, at least those have frequent buses.

  • I seem to have found their token unfriendly driver on the last section of the trip, but aside from him all staff were friendly, knowledgable and exceedingly accommodating of the stereotypical tourist mix. My only recommendation to improve service would be to give location arrival estimates eg how long from point x to point y

  • Can only relate my experience - purchased tix. at hotel, upon representation bus came along every 20 min. - took taxi to bus stop - clearly standing under bus stop sign for Original Tour bus - after 40 mins. passed, tele.-called office - told bus would arrive in 20 mins. - next call in 20 mins., told there was a brake in scheduled service, bus would surely come at 5:15 PM - @ 5:35 PM, when no bus had come, tele. calls to office went unanswered - result so far, 1 hour 35 mins. on bus stop, no bus, despite TWO telephone assurances - cab back to hotel, enlist hotel's help in securing refund - no instant refunds, my credit card account would be credited within 10 days - no receipt of acknowledgement refund would be paid - it was only upon my suggestion to the hotel that an e-mail be sent, that I received ANYTHING to hold onto regarding refund - result to this point: vacation disappointment, 95 mins. on a bus stop, 2 cab fares' cost, a promise of a refund, & Original Tour gets the float on my $$$ for 10 days or so (I hope !!). Absolutely no offer of any attempt to make up to us for any of the bother and expense of this, caused by Original's failure to send a bus/adhere to it's published promise of service. I hope to find some agency that regulates these consessions that I can lodge a complaint with; Original should not be allowed to operate this way. I've read someone commented it's a shame Google won't provide for the awarding of ZERO stars - this is a zero star situation, in my estimation. I AM NOT A SHILL FOR ANY SERVICE - I noted, during the time I and my 83 yr. old mother stood on the bus stop, at least 3 Golden Tours Hop on Hop off busses passed.

  • Waisted £32 which is $53AUD on a horrible service when we bought the tickets we were waiting for 40 minutes to get on our first bus. Then we were finally picked up by a bus that was out of service and had to make a special trip just to take us to another stop to get on a connecting bus. We also seemed to have picked up another group who were also stranded. Long story short, terrible service, horrible scheduling, lots of waiting and just bad.
