Ho Ho Buses

I have read some conflicting information between several of the previous HOHO Forum questions and the Original and Big Bus websites. Can someone tell me with certainty which one(s) use live tour guides? Thanks so much!

We used the Big Bus on our first trip to London and there was a guide on the 'red' route, if you check their website map you will see the different coloured routes. We used that company because it had a stop near our accommodation, we were happy with them.

We did the Original Bus tour two weeks ago and they had live guides.

I did the Original Bus tour a couple of years ago and the guide was so in your face, that I changed bus at the first opportunity! I found I wanted to look at the scenery, not be harangued because I wasn't all gung-ho to his questions.

Me myself, I loved the taped tour: I could let it drizzle in and out of my brain as I absorbed the wonders in front of me, and made my own impressions.

Not knocking all live guides of course, and it's horses for courses, but the taped tour can work well too, s'all I'm saying.
