After an overnight stay in London we had planned to take a ride on The Eye before our train journey home.

just a pity i didn't have enough time in london; the big bus is a great way to zip around town and identify key things to see and do. 1 thing to note: just get the fixed date one. I couldnt activate my ticket on the date itself (2nd Feb) but the staff were so nice and helpful about it.... More

We took the big bus tours in London and were glad we chose them. Their frequency is very good every 10 minutes and their tour guide was very informative. Their stops are located conveniently close to major attractions so it's easy to visit attractions. They also have 3 free walking tours which I suggest you should take advantage of. We... More

It cost £64 for 2 people. They tell you it is for 48hrs but you do not have time to go... More

The first bus we boarded had audio commentary in 12 languages with free headphones, a map and rain wear!! Very handy! We had... More
