Good experience
Aug 2021
Excellent service a rep called Sylvia from Spain was at St Paul's and explain ed the road was closed so she kindly walked us to another stop where the bus was diverted to. On board the the commentary was excellent both by the lady and the gent who came on later. Can't Remember the lady's name but the gent was called Jez. I got on the bus near St Paul's around 1045am if you could mention it to the lady on that bus.

A fabulous way to see the city
Kevin was a great tour guide- knowledgeable and entertaining. So much better than headphones with a recorded narrative.

Bus tour covered all the main tourist attractions with opportunities to stay on for the full 2 hour trip or get on and off throughout the day.

Disaster day
Aug 2021
Return visit and the Saturday and the commentary for the East bound section excellent.
Sunday was chaos day in London with the Triathlon and no buses West bound at Westminster Pier. Walked over the bridge and spoke to Byan who went out of his way to take us to the revised bus stop for the West bound section.
This journey a disaster but nor the fault of Toot-Bus as many road closed and difficulty routing. Gave up in the end and disembarked at Waterloo.
Bus clean but commentary out of sync with all the diversions.
Would still recommend this company.

Jul 2021
Visited London mid July and brought Grandchildren for their 1st general visit since a young age and considered this an ideal way for them to get to know the city.
Only 1 route operating so very limiting.
The Saturday bus was clean and the audio commentary a bit disjointed and not in sync with the bus position so we had either passed the site or had not yet arrived. Lots of irrelevant waffle by some of the enthusiastic commentators and a bit annoying.
The bus was clean and driver helpful.
Second day was a different experience as Peter gave a very interesting commentary and learnt so much about the areas visited. Again the bus was clean and driver excellent.
Coming to London next week with another of the Grandkids and will use this operator.

Pre-recorded boring, irrelevant, stereotypical tour information, poor communications.
Jun 2021
God this trip was awful! We waited well over an hour for a bus. When we boarded we then had to wait another 20 minutes before we left. The bus driver didn't bother to tell us that there were demonstrations going on hence the delay and that we wouldn't be doing the normal route- we heard him telling passengers after us.
It took over 2.5 hours to get round the loop- not the company's fault but they really should have told us.

Because we weren't doing the normal loop we have very little information on the actual sights- but instead loads of pre-recorded drivel about British people which I found equally offensive, judgmental, irrelevant and untrue! Such as "If a British person tells you to arrive at 7pm, arrive at 7, not 5 to or 5 past, British people like punctuality" and British people like understatements so if something is "not bad, British people actually mean this is very good". I found this very grating.

We were surrounded by gorgeous architecture and buildings and learnt so little about them. The flyers also said there would be a live guide- but instead there was recorded guides talking in the first person in a most irritating fashion - eg telling us what they had eaten for breakfast etc!!

We were also expecting a walking tour included in the ticket which is why we chose this company over their competitors. Once on the bus we asked the driver who didn't know if they were running! But asked his colleague who was sat on the bus (not sure what he was doing as we didn't get any live commentary!) and were told the walking tours weren't happening because of Covid.

We emailed the company when we got home to tell them about our bad experience and never received the courtesy of a reply.

We have had some amazing, fascinating open-top tours in other countries, but we really were disappointed by this one.

Unimpressed
Poor commentary poor views of the sites generally unimpressed for £50 not worth the money I expected a lot more. Minimal historical, geographical or factual information except for a bit about the fire of London and Queen Victoria wanting marble arch moved. Would have liked more info on the attractions of London and the history of the buildings. Wouldn't recommend this tour

Poor commentary
The commentary on this tour is awful. Patronising commentators, intermittent annoying music and commentary that’s completely irrelevant to the tour points. Even when a place of interest is mentioned more often than not it’s not actually possible to see it or we’d already passed it.

Hop-on Hop-off is good if only spending 1 day in London
Oct 2020
We joined the hop on hop off tour to help us get around London. It was good listening to the commentary although most of it I'd heard before or knew already. Felt very safe with the bus driver and everyone was spaced apart. Probably more worthwhile if you only have a day in London and need to see everything at once.

Perfect way to see the sights
We love an open top bus as a way to start our stay in any big city as it offers a flavour of the sights, the opportunity to hop off and visit them and allows us to get a feel for the city. The commentary from all the guides was excellent and very interesting. River cruise was a bonus. Would highly recommend especially for first time visitors to London.
