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.

Good value for what we needed

We purchased the 48 hour ticket for our family of 5. The main reason we chose this company over the other hop on/off tours was that the tickets were good for a continuous 48 hours instead of just 2 days. This meant that we actually...More

Not bad .... could be better

I was picked up at Paddington and taken to the "Office" to have my online ticket validated. The driver was pleasant but vague as to exactly where to go to get the ticket validated. Staff were otherwise very pleasant and helpful. Taped commentary was good...More

Take another tour company - least amount of buses, don't always stop

While waiting for the Original Tour bus at any given stop, you will see at least 2 of the other competitor's buses come and go. At one point, the driver passed right by us and didn’t even slow down. Because where we were located in...More
