Overall rating

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.

We loved seeing London on the Big Bus and enjoyed the cruise. Unfortunately, we did not make it on the London Eye; maybe next time! Two things that could be improved: 1. The audio on the Big Bus can be very annoying. Just stick to the facts of the sights without all the joking and music in between. 2. It would be nice if the cruise would go round-trip instead of one-way.

No clear directions for regular ticket entrance. I purchased a regular ticket and only saw entrance directions for fast track. Once we found out that both entrances were the same, we were fine.

amazing experience, great idea to spend time while visiting London.

Super easy to see the city. Absolutely loved the views!
