Very nice tour of London showing all of the major sites on the line. Since London is so large, you can easily transfer to another line so you can see other attractions. It st stopped right in front of Buckingham Palace, etc. It’s a great way to see London on your first day.

This was the best tour. We were able to hop on and off a bus and also boat tour. We had Tim and then James on the guided tour and they were both amazing. This option gives you so much more information about their city than listening to a recording. They made it much more personal. We were able to visit and cover much more ground by having this tour.

Every trip, every time...we always take the Hop-on Hop-off Original Bus Tour. It is super affordable and gives a great overview of the entire city. It seriously shows all the wonderful buildings and historical spots that you would want to visit. We grab a seat on the upper deck..it is the best place in the world for the best photographs! If you see something you want to look at for a longer time or just look at something a little closer, jump off, spend you time, and get back on! This last time we were there, we actually did half of the tour on one afternoon and then got off to shop at Primark for awhile. The next day, we returned to the same bus stop where we got off, showed them our voucher, and finished the tour! Super easy, super fun!! We feel it's the number one thing you MUST do in London.

I purchased this as a gift for a friend who was stuck in London due to bad weather in the states. They were so happy to be able to explore the city via this tour and were able to forget their troubles for a bit.

Outstanding hop on hop off experience. It included commentary by a live guide rather than via recording and he was hilarious, as well as informative. Using the HOHO gives you the opportunity to see the city and then to go back to the places you want to see in more depth. The busses were on time everywhere and the stops are clearly marked.
