Overview
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.

We did the bus tour on a sunny, hot Sunday. There was a 10km fun run in the city which caused road closures and diversions. I was very impressed with how well the tour coped with that, and the communication around this was excellent. We...More

We did the yellow route. We did part with the earphones and part with the live commentary. The live commentary was good but I wasn't able to listen to him for 2+ hours. I wanted to chat away to my family too so the earphones...More

Great bus ride through downtown London (4 separate routes) with tons of buses that you can hop on/hop off during a 24 hour period. We took the boat ride down the River Thames that was very well done with live tour guide. So many stops...More

Very educational; Completely worth it -- River cruise was the highlight!

The traffic was horrible, but we expected that. The live commentary is so good. That was awesome. We didn't realize that we also got the river cruise too, but when we found out we took advantage of that. That was awesome. It was like the...More

Maybe you are looking at the Orange Route. There isn’t a Red Route. There is also a Black Route but that is just a connector bus between the different routes.
