This was so worth it!. You can easily get on and off and see all the hot spots of London. I also enjoyed the cruise ride that came along for free. That was another great way I was able to see the city.
We had a limited time in London before our Tour started the next morning. This is a great way to see so much of London and it's sights. Great value as well.
This tour all depends on whether or not you get a good tour guide. Ours was excellent.
It was awesome. However most people do everything on their smart phones and the main office does not have wifi, forcing us to pay to have hard copies made of the confirmation. It was annoying and time consuming.
Very nice experience. Many buses , a lot of stops. The only problem we had was the road was closed and the bus could not make the stop we were waiting at. After waiting 45 min....we stopped a bus as we walked and he graciously let us on at a stoplight !! When the route is altered, maybe a text would be the answer. Otherwise a great service !!!
This sightseeing tour is a must for every newcomer to London. It helped to familiarize us with the city of London with a bird's eye view of the most popular attractions. The Thames river cruise at dusk really outlined the beauty of the waterfront buildings and is a great way to relax at the end of the day. All 3 additional walking tours were fantastic and relayed by a very animated tour guide.
It is a full day of activity and one you should not miss!!
The double decker bus was great!! The hop on-hop off worked perfectly!! Rode the Thames riverboat while on the tour; the bus was close by after the Thames. Don't forget to use the audio guide on the bus (earphones provided). OLST is the best!!!

We loved this trip although most of them was an audio tour the explanation was clear and very informative. it went around to many important landmarks where you could get of the bus visit the place and get back in the without any problems. We will do it again !!!!
In the other hand, your tour is good 24 hours from the moment that you switch your voucher for the ticket.
I strongly recommend this tour.
great i suggest it, great to plan out your day would be the best way to take you around for the day so plan well
I've used the Hop on/Hop off tickets every time I travel to a new country. It definitely helps to get oriented and provides a great overview of the city.
Excellent value fro money. Staff very helpful and infomative. Great live commentary. We had a great day.
The best way to see London.
Exactly as advertised! Nothing will get you to the best locations in London better than this tour! Make sure you use your ticket to get you in to some of the attractions.
Excellent way to get around the city at your own pace. The staff were happy to help and the commentary was informative. Plenty of different routes to get you around.
It took a little time to find the tour office but the other vendors on the street were very helpful in directing us to the office.
With that said this was an excellent tour, there are four different routes that you can go in that show the different parts of the city plus there was a river cruise down the Thames.
Overall for the price it was a very good value plus since it was a twenty four hour clock for the one day we got to use the tour bus for two day.
The yellow tour is a narrated tour which as fun while the other four tours were taped, which was fine.
A very good value for the money.
Also they take a group over to see changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, but depending on the season it does not occur everyday so you should check the schedule at Buckingham Palace to see when Changing of the guard is scheduled.
This was the perfect way to pass the time till I could get into my hotel room. Loved seeing all sights and the commentary. Learned so much.

Excellent tour. We went on the yellow route only. Very informative tour with a guide who was both entertaining and informative. She was able to answer any questions we put to her. Despite the weather we sat on top in the open air and had a great time. Well worth the money, and even cheaper when booked online. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.
Didn't have enough time to cover all the different lines, but the ones we did took you to all the iconic places. When we got off it was always a short walk to the attraction then a short wait to get back on the bus
Great way to see London. The guide was wonderful. Would highly recommend this tour.
Perfect for seeing the major sights of London. Multiple routes easy to transfer.
Booked this tour as our first one to get acquainted with the city. It was fun to hop on/ hop off which we did to transfer from the various colored bus lines. We covered the red, yellow and blue lines in one day and took the River Thames cruise, too, which is included in the price of the tour. We thought we might ride again the following morning before our ticket expired, but felt that we covered most of the city sights on the first day. If you want to ride for a second day, I heard it was only 7 pounds more. Cruising the River Thames was relaxing and informative while listening to live commentary. Highly recommend this tour for getting your photos of the famous sights! You have to sit on top to get the better photos!
Do this and let the traffic move around you
Excellente routes. Buses allways available.
