Great experience - After flying all night and then checking into hotel and sleeping - we thought we missed the first of our 48hour ticket. Thankfully, when we did board the next day we were pleasantly surprised to find that the 48 hours start after you first board! So we didn’t waste our money. After walking all morning, it was great to ride on the bus and see the sights. I like the audio that accompanied it telling of the different things.

Great tour to see city - Great way to see London. Buses come regularly (every 10 minutes). App allows real time view. Only complaint hours were not listed and blue tour ends early and it’s not real clear how to do the boat tour. However, You just go to pier and go to company (which is at end of them) and give your booking info.

Catastrophic for my family - Horrible. I had rented a car to drive due to one of my children's disabilities. There was no public parking anywhere I had researched, so we missed out on everything since I couldn't park the car anywhere.

Scary times - The driver of 19762 operated the vehicle recklessly, narrowly avoiding a collision with another bus in Trafalgar Square. I’m deeply disappointed by the quality of service. It’s concerning to think this might be representative of all the drivers. I’m hesitant about booking another tour with this company.

Not happy. - I feel like they were stealing my money. They cancelled the blue route on Saturday. Very difficult to find a route. Viator failed as well. Very disappointed.
