We had 4 days in the city and this was a great way to get a good overview and travel around to the attractions we wanted to visit. The hop on hop off bus gives you a general over view from the road, the river cruise shows you similar sites but from a very different perspective, and thee London Eye was a fun experience that gave us a birds eye view of the city.
ONE big issue with this company was the timeliness of the buses, they indicate they are supposed to arrive every 20-30 minutes, but there were times we would wait over 45 minutes for a bus. Other times there was such bad traffic (not their fault) but we would just sit and not move for 15/20 minutes so seemed a waste of time
We rode with 5 or 6 different commentators and I can say some are very good and some are crap. We had one who pretty much just announced the next stop and maybe a sentence or two if she had to. Others were great, they had to re-route the buses due to roadwork and they just picked up the commentary and continued on the tour as if nothing new had happened (I knew because I had ridden that route prior).

This is a great way to see a lot of the city in a short period of time, BUT, the quality of the staff at the stops and the guides varied wildly throughout the day. The first guide shared way too much personal info while not really telling us about what was around us. Other guides did a better job, but kept trying to tell very unfunny jokes. The best guide just kept to the facts, keeping us updated at every point along the way. The river cruise guide stated that he wasn’t a guide but rather a member of the crew and proceeded to tell us things that were not correct, often being corrected by the audience. At the stops, it was often confusing about where to go next, where to wait. While the staff based at our hotel (Doubletree) and at the Tower of London couldn’t have been more pleasant, the staff at the Marble Arch acted like we were bothering them with our questions. If I were to do this type of trip again, I think I would try one of the other vendors.

The river cruise was brilliant. It was a 40 minute boat journey where you got to see quite a lot of the main attractions. The boat’s tour guide, Liam, was entertaining and kept the audience engaged. He did a fab job and learnt a lot of new facts about London. Overall would defo recommend to anyone new to london or even those living nearby for years like me!!

We booked this tour as we thought it would be a quick and easy way to see London. After speaking to an employee ( who said the bus would be in around 10 mins) We planned to get on at victoria and head to the river cruise. Instead of being 10 minutes, we waited nearly 40 minutes, by the time the bus finally arrived, there was a large number of people waiting woth us and we had to fight our way on, we were lucky to get 2 seats together. We thought it may be a one off so forgot about it and, as planned, got off for the river cruise and sailed down to the tower of London, where we then waited another 45 minutes a big bus to arrive! We had planned to head to Covent garden after but had to cut our day short as we were leaving at 6pm that evening and couldn't risk being stranded for ANOTHER, three quarters of an hour. The commentary on the bus was so cheesy and, quite frankly, embarrassing and was listened to through cheap plastic headphones.
If you fancy and open top bus tour I would book with any other company as they had plenty of buses runnin, 2 or 3 of the same company passed us as we were waiting and they were much less busy.
Save your time and money and don't book the big bus

We used Big Bus Tours on a few different days on our trip to London. The first day we decided last-minute to grab a tour as the weather was fantastic but too hot for wandering around. We had no issues finding seats and could move around as people got on and off. Views from the bus were fantastic and we could do a fair bit of people watching while relaxing on the top deck.

We had such a good time we decided to get tickets for another day so we could take full advantage of hop on/off, listen to the commentary etc, and got the combined London Eye and River Cruise Package. We hopped on and off numerous times, never waited very long for a bus and always found plenty of seats available. I really enjoyed the pre-recorded commentary and the music as we drove around London, especially at Baker Street! River Cruise was also fantastic with amazing views and a really funny commentary.

Out of all the bus trips only one driver was helpful. The others were the most miserable people I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. Even answering a simple question was too much trouble! Seriously need some people skills training.

Very good tour experience. Booked it via virgin experience days using my corporate account. A friend visited the U.K. and I booked the tour in advance. The vouchers came through the post and I redeemed it on the day of the tour.

We spent a small fortune on 5 adult tickets to the London Eye and Hop-on Hop-off tour. The London Eye was incredible, but I am unconvinced we realized the value for the money we spent. As far as the Hop-on Hop-off tour, it was horrible. The buses were inconsistent, crowded, and at times we could not even get on a bus and were told to wait for the next. The app was also unreliable. Fortunately we had passes for the underground and ended up using that during the day to get around the city. It was very disappointing. We skipped the Hop-on Hop-off in Dublin when we found that all that was available during the time we were there were Big Bus tours because of this experience.
