Bucket List Checked - Riding the London Eye and taking the river cruise had been on our bucket list ever since we were in London 2008. Drivers were very helpful and informative. Buses are comfortable and easy to get on and off of. One of the best ways to see London in a short period of time. Things we planned to see were Big Ben, the river, Buckingham Palace, the sphere, and have lunch and dinner in pubs. Got caught out in the rain and found a quaint pub close to Buckingham Palace for lunch and local beer while the rain came down.

London BigBus tour - Everything about the day was enjoyable. The commentary using the earphones was very good,. We had a lot of fun with hopon hopoff bus staff while waiting for the westbound blue line. We felt we saw most of the highlights of London during the trip.

Great Experience - Excellent way to see most of London central. Routes utilized provided a large overview of London’s sightseeing opportunities.

Great stops, close to all the things we wanted to see - We did a whirlwind Europe trio for Spring break. The best decision I could make was to use the Big Bus tours in every city. London was great, the commentary was cute and my 5-year-old was engaged. They are wheelchair accessible, but i wish that they al had a monitor on the accessible seats that showed a live view of what the people up top were looking at.

London - fit for a King - Everything worked out really good for our group with the only mild complaint being that there were times when the bus was really crowded - standing room only. Driver should control who gets on better.

More details required, but the tours were wonderful - The main concern with this is that it was not clear which bus company was to provide our hop-on-hop-off tour, and whether the tickets were for 24 or 48 hours. We didn't end up needing 48-hour tickets as we had a different excursion planned the next day, so we might have saved some money by getting a 24-hour ticket. There are about 5 different companies providing this service, and we had to go around and ask the agents at each of the companies to find out which one we were supposed to take with this package, and where to meet the bus. The boat tour was only in one direction, and we had to find our own way back from the other end. The actual tours were informative and interesting. The London Eye provided spectacular views of the city.

Nice package - Nice tour, but didn’t see the description of the cruise being one-way or location of boarding and drop-off. Had to ask. But all the employees at the various stops along bus route were very helpful.

Best was the river cruise - Positive it is a good and easy way to get around London and see the must important landmarks in the this great city. The app is not working - we where continuously look out and the timing possibilities to see next bus, was not proper updated - extra waiting time. There was to our understanding two red routes and we could not determine then from apart. The speaking was updated and more modern but we did not found all the landmarks by following the “guide”? Some funny facts was included. The river cruise from Tower to Westminster was super with an old fashion guide with a old fashion microphone and we all loved that part. Well done.

Big Bus Tours. - I have not actividades the Hop On Hop off bus tour yet but yesterday was utterly confusing using this Viator pass. For the London Eye fase pass, my ticket would NOT scan either time I presented it. They needed to get a manager involved. For the City Cruise on River Thames it was the same issue, every where I scanned the pass it did NOT come up and a manager needed to be called over, honestly it was a bit embarrassing. We will see how the bus tour goes today.
