This is a great way to see London. We really enjoyed getting off and on as we please and seeing the major sites in London this way. We do this in most cities, but it is exceptional in London. Loved it.

The buses were easy to find and there was always open seats. Viatar was a great way to buy tickets. Red bus tickets got us on both red and blue lines, as well as a boat ride.

This tour was amazing and hit all the major attractions! We had the best guide (Matthew). He knew everything about the city and the history. The employees were all helpful before we got on and off the tour. It was the best and I highly recommend the big bus tours!

a 2-day pass is really needed if you have a limited amount of time in London and you want to see everything. The main city center is actually easier to walk around than to take the tour bus because the streets are so congested. But the sites that are a little further away are much better to take the tour bus.
