      A great way to hit the highlights of London, either to get oriented for a trip of several days, or when you just have a very limited amount of time. Bus was comfortable, guide was knowledgeable, and there were plenty of opportunities to get on and off. It was easy to get the tickets online, and the mobile ticket scanned easily and effortlessly. There was a live guide on one audio channel, and recorded tour highlights in many languages on other audio channels. The guide supplied decent enough earphones.

      Wikipedia will was amazing!!! It’s people like him that make these experiences fantastic! His knowledge was phenomenal and his sunny disposition and anecdotes made a very cold trip that much more enjoyable. Will needs a promotion! Training some of the other guides on the best way to inform and educate on London’s history. The tour guides on the bus are a refreshing change to a pre recorded track however the quality of these vary strongly. In saying that the bus tours themselves are great with convenient locations and lots of stops. The buses were pretty busy but the high frequency means you don’t have to wait long.

      A great way to explore the city, we also had a Thames-suprer cruise included in the price, very helpful staff. My only caveat concerns the audiobook, because the information provided by a teacher in Polish is negligible, more of a background music than valuable information about passing objects. Still, I highly recommend
