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.

We've been converted to tour bus people! :S

This was our first bus experience. Until London, we were strictly anti-bus tour people (previously we had rated the success of our adventures based on the amount of blisters on our feet!). But now as travellers with a traveller-in-training (a 7 yr old), we had...More

Chaotic

We joined the bus, on the Purple Route at the V & A museum stop. Not impressed with the staff member at the stop who spent most of the time making possibly slanderous comments about the other companies running similar tours. Also not impressed with...More
