Unbeatable customer service - Are these people serious?!? Of the dozen people working for the bus company yesterday, every single one was kind and patient and cheerful. After a flight from Houston where we got no sleep, we toured around on the bus all day transferring between routes until we could go to our hotel. It could have been a really hard day, but the staff actually walked us to our connecting points making sure my elderly mother didn’t get lost and not going too fast. Fantastic way to see and get around London. So many stops. Will be my go-to next to time I’m in London. The only thing I would recommend is that they look into the app—I had a few glitches in the audiotour. But it really was minor. Overall the audio was awesome and actually gave us a lot of great ideas that we didn’t find by Googling.

Good for Seniors - The ferry was loads of fun! This is great for people with mobility issues. Less walking around London but you can still see everything.

Good for a rough view of London. - One of the most unprofessional tours. Though there was an audio portion, often, it didn’t correspond to our location, so it was hard to follow along. Twice, our driver turned off the bus and left for about 10 minutes without telling any passengers what was going on. This is fine for viewing London but not as informative as other hop on hop off bus tours.

Recoded tour is mostly just music. - Narration was terrible, we really wanted to learn about London. Went on 3 buses and two loops and didn’t learn much. The recoded line mostly played a weird variety of music, and when there was a quick narration, it wasn’t very good/educational. We had two day passes and ended up just taking the city bus for the second day, it got us there faster and you can learn more about the city from google maps/Wikipedia. The river cruise on the other hand was great and had a live tour guide, we learned loads about the city on that.

I do not recommend! - The lack of customer care is deplorable! Tried to contact the your operator through Viator app to find out where the stops were so I could “hop on”….no response se whatsoever. Went through several rabbit trails to finally discover I need the Tootbus app for that information. There was no information given on any of the buses about the sights or the stops. Completely missed Westminster Abby as that stop was announced as Big Ben. The last bus I hopped on was surly and you could tell she hated her job. There are several more bus services that provide this same experience—book one of those instead.

Cruise is great -- bus much less so! - The Thames cruise. Bus service was difficult to navigate in large Saturday crowds -- stops were hard to find. Call from a Parliament Square Toot bus stop but it was not really any help. Ended up walking back to hotel. Sorry, can't recommend Toot bus. I will say that drivers were very nice though.

Not a good experience - The bus was very confusing. We got on for 20 mins and we’re stuck in horrible traffic that didn’t even move so we got off. It’s very slow. We tried finding a bus again multiple times, even downloaded the app and couldn’t find it anywhere. We paid over $120 and didn’t use this at all. Very disappointing.

Tootbus sightseeing ride is the absolute worse - It’s a ride for pigeons It Sucks bad If anyone is interested in sightseeing stay clear from this bus company Tootbus Slower than molasses and every other company comes very quickly and often they need to do better We had an excursion at 11:15am woke up and left our hotel at 8:15am we took the blue line which was going smoothly but once we transferred unto the next line that is where it went down hill…We had plenty time to get to our tour …bus driver got to a certain area and sat their for a good 20 or 25 minutes making us late …..And missed our tour and no refund 🤬🤬😡😡😠 It left us my group of 5 very disappointed……but you live and learn and gain experienced not what to do travelling don’t pick the first person that runs up to you jus cus u new to the city do research first and review the pamphlets u find in the lobby of hotels

Bummer ride - Audio 'tour' was worthless. Only announced srops. Traffic was horrible so we bailed after 20%. Never mentioned the Thames River cruise that was part of the package. Try a different company.
