Always my go-to in new cities to learn my way around. Pretty scheduled every 20 mins for the 3 day ticket we had. Easy to see around the whole city, saved us taxis/Ubers by just getting off at the closer stop to things we wanted to see and do all over the city. Note: the BLUE line is not operational now- it’s “seasonal.” I must have missed that in the booking. The river cruise is actually very worth it. Love the different views and commentary. Easy, reliable. Peaceful even just to ride around their loops. Definitely recommend as a both a tour and a taxi for you!

The actual route aside from not seeing the front of Buckingham Palace was good. What really let the whole experience down was the headphone commentary. Our group found this to be childish and informative in any tangible way. This tour would be greatly improved if there was a continual commentary talking about all of the sites and places of interest that we passed. Scrap the quiz and the mindless banter. No one is interested.

The tour was great, the information you got through the earphones was very well presented and funny also very factual and some of it is common knowledge but a lot more that I didn’t know, would definitely do it again, and the fact that it tells you before coming to a stop is great and it also gives you tips of where to go when you get off. Never got the chance to do the river cruise (which I’m gutted about) but it does seem like a great experience. Definitely recommend this tour bus and guide.
