We have gotten into the habit of participating in the Hop On Hop Off Bus Tours in several cities that we have visited. Love the history provided via headphones and if we are on upper level the photo opportunities are available. London's routes are worth the time, all important sites are included.

If you don’t have much time and want to see and learn a lot in one day, this is the tour to take. Our guide David was so good and knowledgeable, it was worth every minute!

We used the yellow line and all 3 of our hosts provided great history about London. It was super easy getting on and off of the bus.

We collected our tickets from the main office which was very easy to locate. The tours are varied and visit all the main landmarks. Moreover we went on the bus T1 which has the live tour guide on board and the details they go into to explain made the experience even more positive, giving curious anecdotes.
