Informative and helpful to get on when tired of walking stretches. Ticket and meeting process was a little vague, and customer service by the ticket agent could have been more friendly and communicative, but otherwise, enjoyable and a good way to get around the city to see all the sights.

We really enjoyed our trip with this bus but sometimes it’s time consuming. The traffics is sometimes frustrating. The audio commentator was awful and I find it uninteresting. The City of London has so much History and to hear just joking aside is pretty bad. I don’t mind listening to facts about London.

I picked this bus because it has 3 routes that all connect plus the cruise between bridges is included. I didn’t have to walk another 10,000 steps to meet the bus somewhere. Bus gets really crowded since it’s the most popular but there’s always another one not far behind. The app is super helpful too
