Simply fantastic!

I bought a 48 hour tour ticket for me and my family and it was the best thing I could have done! We were able to hop on and off the buses for the 2 days making tube tickets unnecessary. The live guides on the Red Route were both entertaining and informative. We also had a fantastic river cruise down to Greenwich and also enjoyed the Harry Potter and Ghosts by Gaslight walking tours. On previous visits to London we have used other bus tour companies, but this was certainly the best we have had and will only use Big Bus Tours in the future. Fantastic!

Very friendly guides

Bought tickets online 2 days before the bus trip. We were already in London with no access to a printer. The guides' scanners couldn't read the scan code on my iphone. It took going to 4 different guides to get it scanned in so we could get our free river cruise tickets. That was the only glitch. Otherwise, we enjoyed to bus tour

A great way to view the sights.

A great way to see the sights, it can get a bit wet on the open top bus in the rain, in heavy traffic you can spend hours travelling the route. The extra bonus of the boat trip is well worth the cost of the ticket.

“Skullduggery - Big Bus city Tour in Dubai”

Audioguide in bus is too primitive and doesn't give full and interesting information. You will not hear nothing like the short history of city or places of sights you pass by, just skimpy comments like: Burj Haliff is on your left, ....skyscraper is on your right and so on. Except this there are permanent commercial advertisements, that repeat endlessly between short comments to places of interest.
There are big jams in Dubai, so the bus driver has to stay for a long in them or change the route sometimes.
However the main great minus is that 24-hour trip - is fake. We hopped on at 10.30, got to the centre by red line bus for walking and at 17.00 were not able to hop on again, because all bus drivers said that they had finished their job.
We also couldn't use free boat tickets that were included in tour, because last boat trip started at 17.00, but you wouldn't find this information anywhere.
Price for this tour ( 54USD per person) is not cheap because for comparison tour with live guide, who takes you from your hotel, has price appr 65-70USD, but in this way you will get really enjoyable and saturated trip.
Big Bus City Tour is one of the really disappointing touristic service.

Good tour, but beware….

We enjoyed our tour on Big Bus. However, they were quite aggressive about selling tickets for tours of other sites saying they would save us money. It turned out that we paid more for the tickets we bought with Big Bus for London Tower than it would have been if we bought them directly at the site. Plus, we are seniors, and we asked Big Bus for senior rates. They said they did not have them. When I asked if they had them at the site, they said they did not know. They should have known that.

Great service

It was a great day out and the guides were great, it was a bit confusing with the routes and we nearly went the wrong way when trying to get to harrods bit the driver was reSlly helpful. The bus stops could have been alittle better signed but it was well worth it.

Une belle balade

Pour notre première fois à Londres, sans en connaître la réelle ampleur, nous avons trouvé très judicieux de la découvrir dans un premier temps avec Big Bus. La possibilité de pouvoir monter et descendre où l'on voulait était très bien. Les commentaires en langue française était très intéressant. Je recommande vivement Big Bus.

very good trip

We enjoyed the trip to the WB-Studios very much. We booked a familiy ticket at home by internet. To save us from stress in the morning (we departed at 7.30am) we already went to look for the pickup-point at Victoria the day before. This was quite a good choice, than "Victoria" is a fairly big area if you look for a specific point, even more because there is a huge building site which makes it more difficult to orientate. If we hadn't known exactly where to get on the bus we would have been late for the trip.

Wonderful way to see London if you only have a couple of days.

My family really enjoyed the convenience and the commentary on the BigBus tours. Not only is it a great way to see London, but also a convenient and inexpensive way to get to King's Cross/St. Pancras.

My only advice is to be mindful of the time as London traffic can chew up alot of your time, if you're not careful.

A Pleasant Relief

It was wonderful to have the freedom to sit on the bus, relax and listen to interesting London history and trivia. We felt the experience was a retreat and an opportunity to rest and not waste the brief time that we had in London. We could be learning and seeing while we sat!! Thanks so much Big Bus!!

Great day out for tourists or locals!

After living in London for the past few months I thought it was about time I got to see the whole city in all it's glory. The tour was great, varied and interesting with enough information without being overwhelming. I would recommend the big bus tours to anyone looking to see a whole city in just one day. I hope to be able to try other big bus tours in different cities in the future! :)

Great way to see London

We did the blue tour and did the complete loop without departing at all and then the river cruise. We would only do the shorter red tour in hindsight as we wanted to see the sights and that was covered on the shorter trip, the additional blue tour didn't really add anything to our day but took another hour. As 2 of our group had never visited London before it was a great way to see all the sites while relaxing up above the crowds, this also gave great photos of the sights as well. We loved the river cruise which gave great views, a respite from cramped tube trains and a very funny trip with the knowledgable watermen......do not miss this gem! It was a great day for a great price and we would do it again,

Only downsides.......
3/5 headphone slots didn't work so we had to share headphones to hear the commentary
We never realised you don't see Buckingham Palace without getting off so missed it completely, it did say it was the stop but we just assumed it came round to the front further along and never got to see it, our loss
It's cold upstairs, wear a cardi as even in the sun it is still blowy and 3 hours is a long time to be chilly

Good but had a major glitch at the end

The buses are nice and frequent, routes make sense, commentaries (live and recording) are interesting, but there was a MAJOR glitch at the end of the tour around 5pm that caused major confusion and disruption to our trip, making the whole experience less pleasant then it should have been.

We took the blue line at around 4pm towards Knightsbridge/Harrod's, and the bus driver told us to get off at where I believe was at around Victoria Station if we want to go West to Harrod's. Most people got off, and we stood there for more than 20 mins just to see five Big Buses went by and all of them either going out of service or not going the direction of Harrod's. After 20 mins some folks like walked away. and about 20 of us are just left waiting there with no info on when the next bus will come, which is kind of bizarre given that it's only 5pm, i.e. tour not supposed to end yet. It would be great if we could be informed about a delay, esp when it''s end of they day and was getting colder and windy, because we could easily have walked or taken a taxi to Harrod's from there instead waiting for a long time.

lovely people always there for help and advice.

I would do it again any time. It's great value for money and you can reach all attractions easily. The buses go every few minutes so there is no waiting time.

Excellent tour with funny & friendly staff.

The tour was very enjoyable, the hop on - hop off system worked very well with buses running very frequently. Staff are very friendly, very helpful, very knowledgeable of the routes and famous landmarks. Only issue was the some buses (must stress 'some' and not all) were old and uncomfy, however hopping off and on frequently made this issue very minor.
