Good introduction to London. We especially enjoyed the cruise with live commentary. Quite a few seats on the bus had broken sets which didn't allow you to listen to the recorded commentary. Wish there was an option for children to listen to a kids version. Surely that could easily be added?

Enjoyed it for the most part. Didn't get to do much hopping on or off with a 24 hour ticket. With London traffic, the single day ticket just about allows you to complete both routes with a short lunch break. The commentary on the red route was a load of utter drivvle! The blue route commentary was much better with actual information about the sights. But, a nice day out in London provided you intend to be on the bus the entire day. If you sit at the top of the bus, prepare to get whacked in the face with tree branches and get a sunburn. Wear sunscreen, long sleeves and a hat!

We came from the Isle of Wight for the day. The bus was fabulous, great informative audio, saw all attractions. Hosts on the streets were extremely helpful. The boat tour was superb, the host giving us the commentary was hilarious, should have been on stage. The only downside was the demonstrators later on, they were blocking main roads out of London. It delayed us considerably for our journey home. So much so we missed our allotted boat back to the island. I will definitely book again with this company, very professional with great options. Thank you xx
