We really enjoyed our ride with maybe one of the best driver : his name is ALVARO. He was so kind with us and made a detour for us at the end of the day to drop us off closer to our hotel. Best customer service ever thanks to him. Employees like Alvaro are rare nowadays. He truly made our first day in London. Thank you again Alvaro for your kindness. Arnaud and Melanie from Canada 🇨🇦

it was great time having tour with the touring company they made sure that the travellers to have an amazing time, besides great deal and service they provided any guidance/suggestions that we needed. i would like to add that after the tour ended we forgotten our bag in the bus but gladly the company had kept the bag without any missing items we are grateful and happy for dealing with the company, and highly recommending to try their services.

Still one of the best ways to see London ! A day ticket allows you on two routes, the RED and the BLUE , with unlimited times on and off the bus. It also includes a river cruise from Westminster up to Tower bridge. If you sit upstairs you see so much more of London's skyline and architecture and the tour commentary lets you know whats available to see at each stop. I found the commentary upbeat, informative and entertaining. The staff were very helpful and were able to print out tickets from my mobile phone bar codes and offer advice regarding the phone app. The phone app was great as it shows real time where the buses are so you can plan when to be at the bus stop and also see the route the bus is taking. My only suggestion to improve on this already great service would be a slightly bigger map showing more of London's great attractions so you can explore more on foot. We bought our Bus Tickets as part of a package with another attraction which made it very reasonable.
