Fantastic tour. Ask for a deal for 48 hrs. Worth every cent. Even did a cruise up to Greenwich which is included in the ticket price. Excellent service and best way to see london city. Hop on hop off any stop. Walk the streets of london too.

We bought a two day pass to go alongside visiting the main attractions in London. We were in no rush which was good because you don't get anywhere in London quickly! Hop on and off...

Very nice when you sit on the top level close to the front. I was surprised to see there was free wifi while onboard. Audio tour is available in multiple languages.

I've done a couple of hop-on, hop-off bus tours in my time, but this has to be one of the best!! The route/s were easy to follow, and unlike others, the stops are right next to the attractions!! We only had a couple of days in London, and this was the perfect way to see it all! When you first... More

Just returned yesterday from London. We paid £25 x 2 (£50) for a 24 hour plus ticket on this tour bus. We waited at the bus stop for nearly one hour for the bus to come in which time several of other Tour Bus company buses arrived. When the bus finally arrived the Guide (Peter I think) was very good.... More

We boarded at Oxford/Regent streets corner (red and blue No 6). Steve was our tour guide and extremely knowledgable and kept us amused despite the horrific traffic. We disembarked at Aldwych for lunch. We boarded again at the same stop at 15:00, this time no guide but earphones. The traffic was slower than walking speed, much of the time music... More

I had bought tickets for 5 for two days online on their website. The bad: This company is super inefficient. We waited 35 minutes for buses on both days. (Suppose to be 5-15 min). When I mentioned this to an employee, he was condescending to me. Look, if it is 30 minutes, just tell your customers that. Don't oversell and... More

We used the hop on hop off bus to get around the tourist areas around London real quick and easy! Every time we took the bus we had a new speaker and they always had new information to share so it was a great learning experience every time!

Staying in Belgravia

Neighborhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.
