We loved the route of the tour. Easy to hop on and off all day, never had to wait for a different bus due to capacity. Did not realize we were to pick up ear buds until about half way through the tour. Maybe a note about that in the confirmation would be helpful as I missed the sign when we got on the bus.

We booked this ticket to complete our weekend in London. We had a very good day, it allowed us to see what we hadn't seen yet and to fully enjoy the ride for the rest. Nevertheless I think that there are not enough buses (concerning this service provider) especially on a beautiful sunny day like this, the demand is necessarily higher and places in the bus are scarce. Unlike the competition where you could see many more buses in the city.

Great tour, clean busses, beautiful weather. Traffic was diverted several times, so we didn’t get to see sone of the advertised spots. But we get on this bus in every major city we visit, and it’s always a must do to get the lay of the land on the first day, so we know what we want to see more of during our stay.
