We set aside one day to do the tour, and rode both the Blue and Red Line routes. Despite my offer of my phone (and backup printed vouchers), at no time did a driver or any other personnel scan our tickets. Just an observation that may be helpful to avoid problems in the future. Blue line bus got stuck in traffic, so we lost some time using that route to access the Red line. Once we were seated in the very front of the upper deck, all was well from there! Very knowledgeable guide Ricky was right next to us so the headphones were not even needed. Good, humorous commentary the whole way. One suggestion: route only goes by the side of Buckingham Palace, not in front. That's ok if you're hopping off the bus, but it was a bit rainy and windy and most people were staying on the bus. No opportunity for a good photo.Overall, good way to see the city and to get around if not using the tube.

This is a great way to see London. We really enjoyed getting off and on as we please and seeing the major sites in London this way. We do this in most cities, but it is exceptional in London. Loved it.

Hop on hop off in London was a disaster! Audio didn't work, overhead speaker didn't work, operator didn't call out the stops so we even knew where we were! Appeared as if the 2nd floor operator was charging more to go to the 2nd floor! Decided to go on the1/2 hour river cruise on the Thames which was included and had to wait in line for 2 hours! Wasted 1 of my only 2 days in London! We were not happy at all and it was a sad introduction to a city I've wanted to go to all my life!

hop on hop off big bus was easy to get our ticket, the staff are knowledgeablel and learned a lot from our journey of history, good job people

We were disappointed as this was just bus service and not a tour. We were traveling at such a high speed that you couldn’t take a picture if you wanted to.

, Oct 2018

We were so excited about this bus tour to see London on our one day visit, and it started off well...but it quickly went downhill in the afternoon. The buses took 20-40 minutes to come pick up up instead of the 15 minutes that was advertised. The buses were all overcrowded and people couldn’t even sit. The employees seemed stressed and unhappy at each stop. We wouldn’t take this tour again.

, Sep 2018

The route hit most of the iconic landmarks in London. The only thing that sort of dampened the tour is the London traffic which was exacerbated by the gas leak.

, Sep 2018

The buses were easy to find and there was always open seats. Viatar was a great way to buy tickets. Red bus tickets got us on both red and blue lines, as well as a boat ride.

, Sep 2018

Loved the River Thames cruise that came with the ticket. Good maps to follow. Buckingham Palace was beautiful. Harrods is a too see. We got off the bus and walked a lot, it is easy to find another bus stop.Only down fall, during the busy time, buses get full fast, and you have to wait till the next one.Sit on the top, fun to view from there.

, Sep 2018

This tour was amazing and hit all the major attractions! We had the best guide (Matthew). He knew everything about the city and the history. The employees were all helpful before we got on and off the tour. It was the best and I highly recommend the big bus tours!
