The bus makes a nice tour of central London and the main attractions to see. The only flaw is the audio guide which stops in the middle of the explanation and therefore it is impossible to follow the logical thread. The information that the audio guide gives could also be more comprehensive and interesting. For the rest, it is a well done tour.

The tour itself was good. The guide was very knowledgeable and funny. The drivers and staff were very helpful and friendly. The only issue I had was that the stop they send you to to get the bus no longer exists (it’s been replaced with another stop - I found this out after asking another bus company) and the name of the company is not on your ticket/invoice. It takes a bit of awareness and willingness to approach others and ask questions in order to find out where, and on which bus you’re supposed to board.

The bus tour is a super highlight and perfect for those who want to see as much as possible in a short amount of time. The audio guides were fine and understandable. During the trip you can take great pictures of all sights. The bus stop could be caught quickly and easily. The two hour tour was also kept for two hours as promised.
