Lifetime worst experience with my family in BIGBUS ! Not recommend!
Oct 2021 • Family
I have had the worst experience of my lifetime. Iam on a short visit in London from Aberdeen along with my wife and 2 small kids 4&7, we got the tickets for big bus+London eye+madam Tussaud etc. The incident happened today, 14th OCT 2021 evening - the time was at 1900 in the London eye big bus stop wherein bus stopped and with my family we were ready to get in, but then the driver looked at us, started showing some face expressions and waived his hands on us and moved away. Is he a racist? I don’t understand what is wrong with him!
It was cold weather and me and wife carrying our kids as they were already tired! At least to show some courtesy and being human, he could have opened the door and tell us what’s going on as he already stopped the bus. I have took the pics of the station to ensure I was on the right bus stop. I spent money out of my pocket to purchase the tickets and now me and my family being just ignored? Is this right? My question is to the management of BigBus..is this the right way? Is this something to do with my skin color? My phone number is 07731552553

Rubbish sight seeing tour
What a shocking experience . Group of 10 so not cheap to get on . We were provided with ear phones to listen to the sight seeing your . All we seemed to listen to was music . My children didn’t learn anything on this tour . Trying to get the big bus company to refund is a nightmare as the chat doesn’t seem to work

Aug 2021 • Friends
was a great day out getting to see London from all different views, the river cruise was by far my favourite with Mick commentating throughout the journey definitely made it a very enjoyable experience!! Recommend all 3 of these but 100% the river cruise, needs to be done and especially on a nice sunny day!

Bad experience
Aug 2021 • Couples
By giving more information to clients about which order to take each activity so that they can validate there online ticket. Our day was spoiled because we tried to get on the eye on our allotted time and found that our ticket needed to be validated by taking the bus tour first which meant we missed our allotted and booked time. We found that your staff were extremely unhelpful. We paid £122 for an experience which was not worth half of that.

London Eye & River Cruise - 100% worth the money!
Aug 2021
We booked the London Eye and the River Cruise as part of a package deal and WOW it did not disappoint. The London Eye was amazing and we could see everything even with a bit of on/off drizzle. Well worth the money and the queuing.

Then we hopped onto the River Cruise boat. The tour guide was Mick and he made us all laugh constantly with his jokes. He was very knowledgeable and we absolutely loved that he is a Cockney Geezer himself! It made it more authentic.

Although my 7yr old probably didn't understand all of Mick's jokes she thought he was great and asked for a photo with him at the end of the tour.

We would 100% recommend the London Eye and the River Cruise to anyone looking to spend the day in London.

John - the lifesaver
Aug 2021
Booked this alongside the London Eye online before our trip to London. The buses arrived very quickly and bus stops were easily identified. App was easy to use and it showed you photos of the actual bus stops incase you weren't sure where to go to board.

The audio commentary was very informative and the red route took you to all of the famous landmarks. It was great that you could hop on and off as much as you liked.

Plenty of staff around to help if needed. In particular "John" who was a life saver - my 13 yr old daughter left her iphone 11 on the top deck of the bus when we got off at stop 18 and he chased after the bus to stop the driver so he could retrieve it for her! She was very lucky to get it back as the bus had driven off before she realised and it was still on the seat where she left it.

Fast Track is a joke. Don't bother paying extra.
Once on the ride it was OK. Getting on it is an absolute nightmare. We booked fast track tickets as my husband uses a mobility scooter, we thought it would be less stressful for him. It was an Absolute Waste of Money.

Thanks Chloe & Paul
Sep 2020 • Friends
We just did the London eye which was amazing and the big bus tour ...Paul was a great and pleasant driver and Chloe was amazing as a guide and has edged my review from a 3 star to a 4 star ..the disappointment came when we had to move buses from Paul and Chloe's bus to another bus as the bus (understandably) had to be sanitised ..we moved to a bus with no guide and no headphones offers.d the drive was uncomfortable and there was no announcement as to what stop we were at even though some people had expressly asked to get off at Marble Arch..we didn't manage to do any other bus trips and I would like to do it again as long as we get Chloe or someone as knowledgeable and personable
