Sometimes it’s hard to get a seat on the bus and finding one where the audio guide actually works is hard. Routes are good, plenty of stops, and they provide you with free headphones. The audio guide is very very basic. The commentary is not super informative. I used this as a way to get around and have good views.

We took the full tour on the first day of us visiting central London and it really helped us navigate the city later on. It was a great way of seeing all the main sights in a short period of a time. We really enjoyed the guide available on audio.

City sightseeing is always synonymous with guarantee for our travels for a tour to discover the city and also for this experience it has not failed. The only downside was the cruise: beautiful but too many stages for the recovery of the other participants and above all explanation of the guide only in English.
