Took the family (2girls 7&9) on the bus tour on a 48hr family ticket booked on the internet, which was great value. Bus tour guides were at all stops which was really helpful as there were lots of route options. We went on the automated guide which was great as all languages were available and made it easy to switch... More

Our daughter loves Harry Potter and our tour guide, Kevin, was fantastic. He was engaging with all of us, he was entertaining and was very knowlegable! If you get the hop on hop off tour, don't miss the Harry Potter walking tour and ask for Kevin!

I can't believe I'm saying this but I wish we would have done the 2 day ticket instead of one. My son loved this. He's not a big underground fan and prefers to be above ground. What a good way to see the city and the route is great but it's London...it's a big city. One day on a tour... More

We managed to squeeze this tour in at the last minute and ended up wishing we could have stayed on board with Nick and Paul (our driver) all day. The stops were relevant, the history was fascinating, and it was all delivered in a fun and entertaining way. Nick had answers for all our random questions and helped us to... More

London double decker busses are famous and a good way to get around, whether a “tour” hop-on-hop-off or public transit bus. There are about four “tour” double decker bus lines that ply about the same routes and show off most London attractions. Taking one early on in your visit is a good way to get the lay of the land...

My wife and I booked online the day before . We live just outside London and this was excellent value for what we paid. We were able to get off at various stops then rejoin. The river cruise included is excellent. We did prefer the live English commentary to the recorded commentary but if you go on the tour through... More
