L'option avec tour de ville, croisière, visite de nuit et tour à pied permet vraiment de bien visiter la ville. Les commentaires enregistrés pourraient être amélioré; il y a de grands bouts avec de la musique alors qu'on passait devant des édifices et monuments historiques; il aurait été intéressant d'en apprendre plus. Londres est riche d'un passé historique; j'aurais apprécié un peu plus d'informations de ce côté.

Booked Hop on Hop bus for 2 days. It was great. Best way to see the main sites in London and hear about them using their headphones and the prerecorded guide especially if you have never been. They have 3 different routes you can explore. Red takes approximately 2.5 hours and the others probably and hour if you don’t get off at all. Must sit on top level that is open air though to enjoy the beautiful sites. Absolutely the best views and great for picture taking. Everyone that worked on the bus was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone especially if it’s your first time in that city.

The red route was a very long route and the one needed to see many sights. I would recommend making two routes out of the red route, or balancing the others a bit. We had some good drivers who were very helpful, but a couple who were quite grumpy - not suited for a tourist attraction. Overall a good tour tho.
