Visited London September 19-22, 2022. This service made getting around So Much Easier. The 20 stops you can get on/off at allowed you to get up close to most of the cities attractions. At most stops there was a person with a red jacket on to assist you. The convenience of being able to start your tour at any of the 20 stops; my only knock is the app says you can start at any stop but when I hit the “Find Stop” button it would only show Stop #1. The provided map also shows not only the attractions and route but the London Tube Stations so you can go visit some places that are off the tour route. My wife and I had to go see 9 3/4 at Kings Cross Station. Overall just a great experience.

The guide was knowledgeable and gave us great information. However, we did not get enough time at all. We felt very rushed. We definitely need to have more time. We were told to try things yet, you’re only given 50 minutes to enjoy the location and be back at the Bus or they will leave people behind, no exception. We experienced people left behind with no attempt to get them.

Firstly, I will like to say a heart felt thank you all the way from Trinidad to London Hop On Hop Off Sightseeing Tours for their honesty and integrity as I had left my cell phone on the bus and it was returned to me even though I had already left London. My uncle were able to retrieve it and post it back to Trinidad. There were no hiccups in collecting on my behalf and I want to say its an honour to have such a service. I can recommend this company to anyone.
