Discover London at your own pace without following the rigid structure of a guided tour on a hop-on hop-off Original London sightseeing tour. Family-friendly and flexible, your 24- or 48-hour ticket lets you create a personalized sightseeing itinerary that covers all major London landmarks. Choose from three bus routes, and listen to audio commentary on the red and blue routes, and a live guide on the yellow route. Plus, your ticket includes a Thames River cruise and access to three London walking tours, making it a great value package.
What to Expect
Redeem your 24- or 48-hour ticket at a date convenient to you, and board your sightseeing bus at one of the multiple stops around London. Opt to remain on each bus route for the entire loop, or disembark whenever an attraction captures your attention.

Live or prerecorded commentary brings the capital city’s history to life, while the included River Thames cruise and walking tours reveal a different side to London.

Some popular attractions this hop-on hop-off tour stops at are the London Eye, Big Ben, Madame Tussauds London, Kensington Palace, and Piccadilly Circus. See the Itinerary for a detailed list of stops covered.

An excellent way to see the city

The buses provide a regular stop-off/pick-up during the day, and got me to all the places I wanted to see in my limited time. I purchased a 3 day ticket, which gave an extensive tour of the city via 3 different routes. The service was...More

Choose On Of The Other Open Top Bus Companies

No there is not, it is a regular double decker tour bus. However, the stops are frequent, the driver can tell you where the closest toilet is from any stop, and they are plentiful.
