No problems--our vouchers were immediately recognized and tickets issued. Great way for introductory London.
... Absolutely worth doing this to get an overall feel for the city and the monuments.
I highly recommend doing the hop on hop off tour. I only had a few days in London and choosing this option was the best! It includes the changing of the guard walking tour at buckingham palace which was pretty cool and a river Thames cruise to relax and take in the beauty of London.
Really enjoyed this tour! Lots of great information about the city!
Great tour and well organised. Shame though about the traffic in London. But that's London for you.
This tour was amazing. Helpful staff. Plenty of buses and routes. Cannot fault it. Suggest this be used in Paris as well
Great value for the money
Drivers very pleasant
We took the train from Paris to London for the day. This tour was perfect to make the most of our trip. My daughter loved the changing of the guards walking tour and river cruise. Best tour for your money!
Great way to see the city and get a lay of the land. We did several routes. Would recommend.
This was great-there was a lady who gave a fantastic commentary for our benefit. Got to go all over London and see historic sights. Great drop off points and our tour included a boat ride down the Thames to the London Eye.
Drivers and everyone else working were very friendly and polite! Great information from the tour guides! There were some issues with late buses, but since there was a lot of roadwork and traffic that day, we didn't blame it on the tour company.
My family thoroughly enjoyed our time on the Original London Sightseeing Tour bus. We were able to experience all the major attractions in comfort with good commentary and great views from the open deck. The stops were convenient and allowed hassle free sightseeing. The two-day tickets we purchased proved to be great value.
This is such a good idea. Really takes you quickly through the locations. You can just hop off and visit the site, buses seem to run about every 15-20 minutes. You get great views from the second level, especially of the Parliament/Big Ben from across the water. I definitely recommend.
This tour was amazing!

Very friendly. Great weather. Funny commentators. Helpful.
Excellent way to see the highlights. We ended up just staying on the bus through one route and going later to some of the places that we drove by on the tour. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to hop-on hop-off and see it all in a day. A river cruise is included in the price, which is also a pleasant and relaxing way to see the city.
Rode on 2 different routes and enjoyed both. Particularly enjoyed the yellow route because of the live narrators who were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Good value since we paid for one day pass and got the second day free.
Really enjoyed seeing all of the city and learning about it and being able to hop off at places we wanted to see and do things. Very good tour.
Excellent value for money and it was so easy to get your voucher exchanged.
Hop on Hop off is a great option if you do not have a set itinerary and have not joined any formal tours. Your tickets are good for 24 hours and includes a river cruise on the Thames which gets you to Greenwich. The stops bring you to the popular landmarks and sites, and the buses come often so you'll be able to use your time efficiently. If you're on one of the lines that include a tour guide that narrates, you can ask them for suggestions on anything from food to which stops you need to get off to get to certain sites, they are very helpful and friendly. Recommendation- bring sunglasses, a warm jacket, and wear sunscreen. When you sit on the top deck, it's sunny, you can get sunburn/windburn, and it can get cold. if you want to be dropped off in front of the Tower of London, take the River Thames cruise and one of the stops is in front of the Tower of London. You can get there by bus too, but you have to walk a few blocks to get there. To take the cruise, pick it up by Westminster/Big Ben, since you get your tickets when you pick up the hop-on hop-off, you don't have to wait in the purchase ticket line, just look for the sign that says Original London Sightseeing and it will take you to the gate you need to pick up the cruise. Everything was very easy and I got to see all the sights, even take a picture of Harrods from the top deck. From the top deck you also get a different view of places because you're higher up and not fighting the crowds to get a picture of things.
Excellent way to see the city.
This tour was amazing!
