Tootbus are excellent. Theyll guide you all the way ! - The best way to see most of the important sights in London on the top deck of a double decker bus. Tootbus staff are very helpful and approachable. Just google a Tootbus stop and hop on. Regular buses and choose from different routes but highly recommend the yellow route. Or do them all. Nice clean buses with complimentary earphones to listen to the guide explain the different landmarks and short history of each and a map to follow your route. The lady driver today ( sat 10th Feb) on the green route, Theresa, went above and beyond to help and assist with redeeming our tickets and stopped the bus and escorted us to the yellow stop to continue our journey. She was very friendly and made sure we had the best experience. Shes an absolute credit to the company.

Easy Way to Get Around to Visit Most of London's Attractions - The Tootbus routes take you all around London to visit most of the of the well-known attractions. It is well-priced, especially if you get it with one of the many tourist combo passes. The buses are generally on time and easy to hop on and off. The are not particularly quick so if you are in a hurry you are best off using the London Tube network. They do a commentary as well which is informative and sometimes humorous

Good sights audio difficult - Trip was nice. Sound system poor, ports for earbuds either broken or poor connectivity. Had to change seats to get audio. App for routes is hard to load and navigate. Real time info not found. Luckily I was not too far from a stop by chance.

Poor audio / frequency of buses - We did a 24hr hop on, hop off in London in between Christmas and NY. The staff were friendly but Toot Bus let themselves down with poor audio on the buses (the kids channel was very poor) and they weren't as frequent as we were told (we waited 30 minutes outside Trafalgar Square). Overall, we would not do this again- London buses is the way to go!

Don’t waste your money!!! - Terrible ! Complete waste of money. Information completely out of date for a start - claiming our poor deceased Queen was living in Buckingham palace and that Will and Kate were still living in Kensington ! What little information that was given between the endless awful music was useless. Some attempt at humour I presume in the commentary but I’m not remotely interested in a man and his start up business and a woman looking for love and describing what she would do with her imaginary children at the natural history museum. Spend your money on one of the proper, professional tour buses that can actually provide some useful information on London!

Awful - avoid - We had 2.5 hours before heading to the airport and were told by the agent that the full loop (hop on/hop off) takes about 40 mins (asked thrice to confirm). Well at about 2:20 mark we had to jump out and look for taxi as the driver seemed to be going 5 mph the entire time (traffic or no traffic), stopping at every other stop to chat with co-workers 5-10 mins - and we still had about 1/4 of the route left after more then two hours. Audio guide was a joke with music playing the entire time and about 5 mins worth of absolutely random factoids not connected to the route or the stop you were at. You are much better off taking a regular bus or even walking.

AWFUL experience for our Family - AWFUL Experience. Completely ruined our time in London. In town for 3 days. Had a 48hr pass. Horrible experience on both days we used Tootbus, leaving myself and my children incredibly upset. Out of pocket hundred of $$$ due to missing entry times for other pre-paid tours due to inefficiency, appauling service and no-shows of buses. Does not deliver 15-20 min arrivals as promised and SHOULD not be relied upon to be on time or to even show up. Saw lots of other companies pass us waiting in the rain with 2 young children. Horrible, horrible horrible. Wish I had booked with another company.

Bad experience - We had an awful experience. We got told to get off mid route in the dark with two children because someone’s drives hours were up. We ended up having to get a taxi back to our hotel. Staff were really rude and just literally told us to get off. Tried to complain but getting no response. We went with these as it was the cheapest but wish we had not!
