Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 4,186 reviews

The Blue & Yellow route cover most of central London allowing you to explore all the sights in the city. The bus is punctual and many of the pick-up points have Tootbus agents to assist. A few of the pickup points are common to both routes allowing a changeover from one to the other. If you really want to explore London though, consider doing the 2-day tour. The addition of the Thames cruise is at a nominal cost with amazing views of London Eye, Big Ben and Westminister on a clear day.

London Dungeons was great! We weren’t able to do the London Eye because I didn’t see the fine print that you needed to book a time for that separately and when I went to book the time, there weren’t any available.

We had a magnificent time! Fabulous acting and surprising elements. Adults and kids alike had heaps of fun.

Great fun!! Super easy to pick up. Bus was clean and the guide was easy to hear and very entertaining.

Guide shared a lot of historical insights and funny anecdotes.
