London was great! We enjoyed all the stops and history of the city. Wish the weather couldve been more cooperative.

It is the only way to see any city on your first days there. You get to know where you want to go and how to get there. Excellent staff on all our trips.

We had a limited time in London so the Big Bus tour was perfect to get a review of the sights and then get off and visit the ones most important. The taped comments were helpful.

A very good service with plenty of buses and good routes. Good value for money, especially with the added river cruise.

We were on a few buses with different tour guides. However, our last bus with Medwin as our guide was an unforgettable experience. He was knowledgeable and funny. He made the tour very worth while.

I like this a lot. Had a chance to see most of London. There are so many good options. I like the red (but too crowded) and blue line.

Overall we had a positive experience with the hop on hop off buses. The buses were clean and comfortable and came frequently. We either had an audio guide or actual person which was helpful. One of our guides, Ian the New Zealander, was particularly funny. We used the buses to either see the sights of London or stop off to go Hyde Park, The Victoria and Albert museum and the London Eye.

All of the times we used the bus the audio did not work the whole time. Busstops were a little difficult yo grind.

Reliable on the red loop but not the blue loop. Left us stranded with a 40 min wait. other buses seem to be in better supply

Inconvenience, I am not able to walk the 20 minutes to get to the big bus n it stops after 5pm.
In Paris it operates later. I paid for the ticket , but arrived too late. Taking a cab to get to transportation n back to hotel gets costly. Big bus not allowed free run of streets in London.
