The hop on hop off bus is something that my husband and I do every where that we travel. This was my children's first time to London and my daughter said this is her favorite part of the vacation.

Overall, my experience was good and I enjoyed this tour using the 24 hour pass. I liked that a walking tour for the changing of guards in Buckingham Palace and Thames River Cruise are included in the pass. I managed to do both. I skipped the walking tour and went straight to viewing the changing of guards. It was a long wait though for the boat ride for the river cruise. Wasn't able to complete all lines (missed the orange line) given the limited time. If you have time, better to get the 48-hour or 2-day pass to maximize the tour and do it at a relaxed pace.

Very nice tour of London showing all of the major sites on the line. Since London is so large, you can easily transfer to another line so you can see other attractions. It st stopped right in front of Buckingham Palace, etc. It’s a great way to see London on your first day.

Unfortunately we had a bad experience with this tour, and it was our only negative experience in an otherwise fantastic city to explore. The hop on hop off stops were not marked well and very hard to find when we finally did find the stop and get on the bus, it stopped for a 15-minute delay for no apparent reason, then by the time it started driving we were deep into rush hour traffic, arrived late to our dinner reservations, and there was no guide nor anyone to talk to. We had nothing but frustration and disappointment with this tour.

I found the Hop-on-Hop-Off bus helpful, but I would also say that there were times when it was difficult to find room on the buses. Most of the time we were able to get a seat.

Stops were not as confusing as Rome HOHO with the OMNIA card. A lot of standing at bus stops. A fire broke out in the city at one of the hotels and bus were re-routed. We had to walk a lot to different bus stops looking for this bus. We just grabbed a taxi and went back to the hotel. Only good if you don't get off the bus.

same as all other bus hop on hop off tours.

Heavy traffic and lack of ear phones for the commentary made it disappointing. The driver or fare collector should offer ear phones to each person who boards the bus.
