Overall very poor seemed to wait at each stop for a looooooooong time, I have lifted this up to an average purely because of the lovely staff at each stop. They are very attentive and can't help you more. It was cheap, pre-book as you can get additional free excursions with tickets. We also did the tower of london and... More

£48 paid for myself and two boys. Had to wait 55 minutes for a bus to turn up at stop 8, Hyde Park, despite advertising a bus every 10-20 minutes. The bus was basic, hard seats. There were cheap headphones to install in a system on to the back of the seat in front for commentary. On other tours a... More

We used Golden Tours hop on hop bus to explore London for 3 days. The buses never came on time, seats were always dirty - headphones didn't work. They sold us tickets that we couldn't even use, after going to the head quarters to ask for the money back for the tickets they refused and we were left on the... More

Took the 24 hour ticket + extra 24 hours which came to roughly the same price as the competition for a day ticket, however, do not know if the other companies offer a similar deal. PROS: Audio with ear phones was very clear CONS: 1. Windows were very dirty - competition had very clean windows. 2. "all stops common to... More

Our hop-on, hop-off experience was disappointing. Because of a scheduling change by our tour director, we did not arrive in London early enough to get an early start, and this bus doesn't run that late. Then, we could not locate the bus stops. We even stopped at a place selling tickets for the tour, and the clerk could not tell... More

First you must understand, that London, especially during the summer months is filled with traffic from Tour Busses an more Tour Busses every where. Thousands of people are coming and going at any time. Getting around London is not easy time wise. Therefore, using the Hop/Off (H/O) is a great way to get a feel of the City and sights... More

We had taken 24hrs +24hrs free package. They covered most attractions. They gave a walking tour free which was really nice. We also got Thames clipper boat ride from London tower to London eye. We could not connect to their WiFi. Buy online as it cost little less. Hop off and hop on one can cover most attractions depending on... More

Got a family ticket for the Golden tours hop on hop off bus thinking it would be a great way to see the London sights without having to walk all the way with small children. To be fair we did not have to wait long at the two stops we used the bus and the drivers were friendly. However on... More

Love the concept of hopping on and off, but might have been quicker walking given the traffic. The music they play between narration is repetitive and gets very annoying. I prefer walking because you can see the sites much better, but the bus is great after a long day of walking and it really does let you see more. Only... More

Took this tour from outside our hotel in Bayswater. Recorded commentary was poor. We were taking the tour with cousins from USA. I noted that we passed numerous significant sites without anything on the commentary but classical music. We were as wise getting off the bus as when we got on! To make matters worse, it's easy to hop off... 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.
