Hello, I read a lot in advance and then booked with the best ones. Golden Tours! You simply can't go wrong here. You are welcomed so warmly and you can never miss the stops. There is a map and the app to be on the safe side. At each stop, a friendly guide is always available to answer questions. We did the tour on 12/25. made with two adults and two boys 8/11. We would book again at any time. By the way, I booked everything through geht your gide. I didn't understand why fast lane tickets for the London eye were fully booked. On site, directly at the ticket counter, this is no problem at all and you can buy the ticket without queuing. Combo tickets are worth it, but as I said, they were fully booked. The hop on hop can be booked over several days. It does not get boring!!

Pysäkki oli helppo löytää ja kartasta pystyi katsomaan missä pysäkit sijaitsivat. Pidin erityisesti siitä, että lippu oikeutti matkusteluun koko päivän ajan eli pystyit jäädä pois yhdellä pysäkillä ja myöhemmin hypätä uudestaan kyytiin. Sininen reitti oli mukavan pitkä ja kierteli tärkeimmät kohteet. Aluksi olin hämilläni, sillä kuulokkeista ei kuulunut selostusta vaan ainostaan musiikkia. Myöhemmin tuli kyytiin live kertoja, joka esitteli mikrofonin avulla jokaisesta kohteesta yleistä tietoa ja yleisesti reitin aikana puhui matkustajien kanssa. Muistaakseni hänen nimi oli Steve ja hän oli todella hyvä!

Great experience. We did the full tour for the first time to get an overview then took advantage of the boat trip and took the bus to stop where we wanted. Comments in French ok, just the music between the comments which is much louder than the lyrics so you have to manage the sound all the time. At the entrance to the bus: map, headphones and rain cape available, great!
