Although these buses say that you can get a tour of London and the special sight seeing areas, the time to get to these places is very long. There are very few Golden Tours buses so you would have to wait 15-20min for a bus to arrive at the bus stop. Also, the buses don't run all day; the red... More

The bus tour showed all the sites around London. Our bus had a live person doing the commentary, Joao Nunez, which was great because you could ask questions and he had fun stories/improve when we were in traffic for a few minutes. Our bus did stop running around 5, before we were back at the stop we needed but we... More

I booked this Nigh Tour back in Feb. 2015 for my London trip and I was NOT disappointed!! The tour guide Joao Nunes, personally introduced himself, asked each guest where we were from and made us feel happy that he was there to give us the tour. Once on the tour, it was very informative, very funny, and quite entertaining.... More

The commentary on the buses sometimes, most is very poor listening, they told us that they work till 8 P.M but instead they work till 5. P.M. It happened 2 times. The first time we asked till what time they operate and the answer was till 8 P.M and we were on the bus stage at 6 P.M waiting till... More

There were times when this bus tour was very helpful and some of the commentary was very informative and interesting. Unfortunately, the buses do not run as regularly as they say they do. There are other hop on- hop off bus tours that run using the same stops. At times we would watch 3 or 4 of the other company's... More

When my wife and I visited London recently we looked out for a hop on hop off bus as we do on most city breaks as they are a fantastic way to get around sites . However we selected golden tours on this visit and I asked the guy selling the tickets what the price included just to be sure... More

In my opinion id u are short on time and tight on budget then do one of these hop on hop off tours. You can do these at your own pace and have an on board audio guide for free (tough the cheap headphones are hard to make work on both ears). Best way to see London! Makemsure u study... More

What a joke this company is. A bus every 20 minutes, yeah right, there might be a bus every 20 minutes, but not one of theirs. We gave up after a 30 minute wait and started walking the route, we'd not been passed by the bus an hour later. The traffic was fine so that can't be an excuse. When... More

Overall our experience with this hop on hop off service was terrible. My boyfriend and I were visiting London on a 24hr ticket. We were only spending one day and wanted to see all the big attractions. Golden tours did offer us this opportunity, that's about the only good thing we can say. The buses were stiflingly hot with no... More

There are multiple companies in London running Hop on/Hop off services and choose anyone other than Golden Tours. There is Original, Big Bus and City Tours - regardless who you pick, they'll have more buses than Golden Tours. Golden Tours also shuts down their services early and I was stranded in the pouring rain with 3 teenagers at the Tower... More

Staying in Pimlico

Neighborhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighborhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
