  • This tour was amazing!

  • very good tour

  • very good tour

  • We bought a two day pass. We turned i. Our voucher and were told wed be able to catch a faster bus if we walked to a different stop. Once we got there, there were changes in the buses and we waited for about 20minutes before the bus left. We sat in the lower level because of rain. The bus leaked onto the passenger seats onto us below. The buses also had windows with advertisements which limited the view considerably if staying inside. One day 2, we waited for over an hour at the Legion of Honor. The call center assured us twice the bus was in the way. After almost 90minutes, we took called a Lyft to rescue us. We then waited in Haight for more than 30 minutes for a bus. We waited again in Haight and the bus showed in 25 minutes. If you do these tours, do it on a warm sunny day not many of them in the city and stay on the bus the whole time and dont get off. I would NOT recommend these tours unless you want to want for countless hours on buses. It was excruciating!

  • Good Value and a great way to see the city. Only negative was that the automated commentary was a bit basic and on some of the buses we went on, had dodgy connection points for the headphones so it either cut out or wasn't clear.

  • This is an excellent way to see London if you are ready to be dedicated to doing as much as possible in one or two days. If you are the type who doesn't enjoy go, go, go sightseeing I'd recommend just visiting some of the sites on your own.

    On the other hand, if you just want to see the sights as you pass by, this is a good way to do it.

    Be aware if you get the 2-day tour that they are on consecutive days - no way to take a breather between sightseeing binges.

  • The 48-hour tour is supposed to give you the possibility not only of hopping on and off, but to take three different tours. The main tour now is not the red one, but the yellow. This route is OK. But the blue does not work, as they DO NOT pass by at Hyde Park Corner each25 or 30 minutes as advertised. I waited for an hour or so, and then the driver who arrived told many tourists, me included, that it wa too late indeed they state tht the last entry is around 1755. As they do not pass at the expected intervals, one may have to plan with one hour ahead of THEIR time. Because of this it was not possible to take this tour, nor any other. The Thames Cruise with extension takes 90 minutes to arrive to Greenwich, and then other 90 minutes back. Total waste of time. I asked before taking it how long it was, and they said 30 minutes! I almost lost a reservation for the afternoon tea at the Rubens because of this. I had to leave the boar at Greenwich and take a bus to the Northern Greenwich Sttion to take the underground. Overall you cannot count on these tour busses to be punctual. So my adise is not to rerve any other plans or tours during the days of HOP ON HOP OFF.

  • Great way to see the city. Don't even try to park - you won't find any, so this is a way to get around.

  • Unfortunately, the traffic congestion made this a slow solution to visiting sights

  • Excellent ... worth doing ... helpful tour guides ... and the bonus of an extra day for free!!
