Overview
Discover London at your own pace without following the rigid structure of a guided tour on a hop-on hop-off Original London sightseeing tour. Family-friendly and flexible, your 24- or 48-hour ticket lets you create a personalized sightseeing itinerary that covers all major London landmarks. Choose from three bus routes, and listen to audio commentary on the red and blue routes, and a live guide on the yellow route. Plus, your ticket includes a Thames River cruise and access to three London walking tours, making it a great value package.
What to Expect
Redeem your 24- or 48-hour ticket at a date convenient to you, and board your sightseeing bus at one of the multiple stops around London. Opt to remain on each bus route for the entire loop, or disembark whenever an attraction captures your attention.

Live or prerecorded commentary brings the capital city’s history to life, while the included River Thames cruise and walking tours reveal a different side to London.

Some popular attractions this hop-on hop-off tour stops at are the London Eye, Big Ben, Madame Tussauds London, Kensington Palace, and Piccadilly Circus. See the Itinerary for a detailed list of stops covered.

Awesome tour of London!

We were fortunate to hop on a bus with a great tour guide "Tim". We've learned when we are on a hop-on/hop-off tour, stay with a bus if you have a great tour guide. This we did. Tim was very personable and very information. We...More

No buses arrived - terrible service

We were sold tickets despite pre-planned road closures across the route, which we were not warned about, meaning that the service was cancelled. We waited hours in total at various bus stops (all the other tour companies were working just fine by the way) -...More

Great tour!

We jumped on the yellow line and had Michael before we jumped off. Short time spent and wished we stayed on longer but so great! Well worth the money spent and great fun. Michael had banter and kept the fun going. Highly recommend.

No there is not, it is a regular double decker tour bus. However, the stops are frequent, the driver can tell you where the closest toilet is from any stop, and they are plentiful.
