This is an appealing guide service maybe one of the cheapest but we wish we had gone with the other company's. Rude and unhelpful drivers, the river cruise is only one way!! The only good thing was the part refund given to us after we complained! We ended walking alot as we could not find the stops and the bus... More

The staff were extremely helpful, and there was good natured banter between all of them as we interchanged the different routes to visit various attractions. They all recommended a colleague who would direct us to the best bus to meet our needs. Overall a very enjoyable experience. .

I think doing a hop on hop off tour in any city you don't know is a great way to spend your first day. Get a sense of where things are and the lay out. look at major tourist attractions that interest you and skip those that don't. Its fairly cheap and saves getting lost and taxi fares.

Hop-on hop-off bus tours were recommended to us by family. We were only in London for one day and thought this would be the best option for us to see everything without worrying about waiting around for buses and trying to find our way to the main attractions. The tour was a complete waste of money. We got off the... More

This was the worst hop on/hop off bus tour I've ever taken. At two different stops everyone had to get off so the bus could be replaced. When we left the Tower of London we saw a bus pulling away. We waited 45 minutes for another to arrive and finally took a cab to our next point of interest. The... More

On leaving Waterloo Station we were looking for a bus to get to Madame Tussauds. It was 1pm by this time and were approached by a Golden Tours Rep. He recommended their Orange route and the 24 hour hop on hop off ticket (it took a while for a bus to arrive, but it did by 1.30). The rep offered... More

Got on the bus at Buckingham Palace and sat for 10 minutes before moving. After 5 minutes we stopped again, I asked the driver why, he told me he was waiting for the next driver to arrive at the bus station. We moved and stopped again outside a small shopping centre and stood there for 30 minutes. when I asked... More

I went with my husband and son on all day tickets. The buses were not very frequent (at least 20 mins waiting) and the stops that Golden Tours used were not very well identified. The headphones stopped working for my son and I got commentary only for one ear. Some of the commentary was also confusing, the bus having passed... More

On a whim we caught this bus. What a joy to ride on top in the open air, on a beautiful sunny day in London. Comfortable ride and super easy way to see ALL the sights. .unencumbered by anything! Reasonable price for everything you can see. I would suggest this ride for everyone. Teresa Windmiller Grove City Ohio

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.
