Excellent way to see the highlights. We ended up just staying on the bus through one route and going later to some of the places that we drove by on the tour. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to hop-on hop-off and see it all in a day. A river cruise is included in the price, which is also a pleasant and relaxing way to see the city.
Rode on 2 different routes and enjoyed both. Particularly enjoyed the yellow route because of the live narrators who were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Good value since we paid for one day pass and got the second day free.
Really enjoyed seeing all of the city and learning about it and being able to hop off at places we wanted to see and do things. Very good tour.
Excellent value for money and it was so easy to get your voucher exchanged.
Hop on Hop off is a great option if you do not have a set itinerary and have not joined any formal tours. Your tickets are good for 24 hours and includes a river cruise on the Thames which gets you to Greenwich. The stops bring you to the popular landmarks and sites, and the buses come often so you'll be able to use your time efficiently. If you're on one of the lines that include a tour guide that narrates, you can ask them for suggestions on anything from food to which stops you need to get off to get to certain sites, they are very helpful and friendly. Recommendation- bring sunglasses, a warm jacket, and wear sunscreen. When you sit on the top deck, it's sunny, you can get sunburn/windburn, and it can get cold. if you want to be dropped off in front of the Tower of London, take the River Thames cruise and one of the stops is in front of the Tower of London. You can get there by bus too, but you have to walk a few blocks to get there. To take the cruise, pick it up by Westminster/Big Ben, since you get your tickets when you pick up the hop-on hop-off, you don't have to wait in the purchase ticket line, just look for the sign that says Original London Sightseeing and it will take you to the gate you need to pick up the cruise. Everything was very easy and I got to see all the sights, even take a picture of Harrods from the top deck. From the top deck you also get a different view of places because you're higher up and not fighting the crowds to get a picture of things.
As always, the hop on/hop off tours are awesome. We only had one full day in the city and this was the best way to see all the sights we wanted to see. Would highly recommend.
Great tour for seeing a lot of the city in a short time period! We rode the entire yellow route. Tony was a great guide! Very funny and knowledgeable. We also rode part of the blue route. These buses were a convenient way to get where we wanted, and we got to see a lot more in the limited time we had than if we had to navigate the city ourselves.
Excellent. Part of the bus routes had an actual live guide. Can do this for few days and still not cover all of the sights. HIGHLY recommend it
Great tour. They made many stops and always told you when the stop was coming up. They also had representatives from the bus company at the stops who were very helpful in answering questions!
A great way to get around London with awesome tour guides pointing out all the highlights as well as the historical facts. Highly recommend to first time visitors!
Great way to see London and hop on and off. The employees were super nice and very helpful.
Booked for one day but was given another day on the bus.
Did the free changing of the guards tour on a good, sunny day - Highly recommend
Book the London Eye, Mme. Tussads and The Dungeon before, to skip the line.
Mainly did the Red and Yellow lines. Check last bus times and the bus stop.
Will do the bus again on my next visit to London
This is a great way to see the city, especially if you are short on time. We used the hop-on-hop-off bus, a walking tour and the river tour. The guides were helpful and knowledgeable.
Perfect for getting a quick overview of all the major tourist attractions. Nice that there was a covered area on upper deck for when it rained. Highly recommend this for every tourist.
Really good day out in London all guides and drivers were so helpful !!
