Excellent Service, life-easy tour around the city. I had a blast!
My only complaint is you have to go so far to get on and needed to find a train to get to where the bus main place is. I tried emailing twice to the original london hop on hop off and tried calling tem numerous times to see whether i could get on closer to my accomodation. No one anwered my emails or my phone calls,
If you've never been to London then taking the ride and the cruise are worth it.
If you are in a hurry and don't have time to walk around London I recommend you to take this tour. Me and my friend were interrailing and had just one day in London so this tour was like made for us. We also took the boat trip. The live guide was funny and friendly.
Very good travelling in London
