Too much time at stops. Takes long time to get places. We've done hop on hop off in other cities and never experienced these long extended stops up to 3-4 minutes a stop.

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw

Also, many of their busses were completely open on top, only a few had a portion of the top covered.
