Highly recommend this day out. The Big Bus is awesome and the commentary is great - for young and old. It’s convenient and you can just plan your day as you wish. Don’t forget to book your time slot for the London Eye online. The cruise was good - a nice way to see the sights - especially The Tower of London. We added St Paul’s Cathedral entrance tickets and stopped there along the way - unbelievable. A must do!

Well organized tour, very fun and exciting experience, the bus runs all day and you can get on and off whenever you want at the indicated stops. This way we toured all over London! Too bad the queue at the London Eye which unfortunately limited the time for the cruise, but considering the period between Christmas and New Year's it is understandable. Highly recommended tour, everyone is very kind and helpful.

collecting the ticket was so much easier than I thought at the meeting point, We collected our ticket around 1pm had only two time slots left for the day for London eye so better to collect your ticket early if you can so you'll have plenty of time options to choose from.

This was a combination of very fun and relaxing activities. The London Eye must have its separate slot booked for which a queue is still there but at least it's moving. The experience itself was excellent. Great views of London especially Big Ben. The Thames cruise was fun and the tour guide was hilarious. Nice perspective from the river. The BigBus was enjoyable, seeing all attractions and areas of London to get a good overview. Fully recommend.

We loved seeing London on the Big Bus and enjoyed the cruise. Unfortunately, we did not make it on the London Eye; maybe next time! Two things that could be improved: 1. The audio on the Big Bus can be very annoying. Just stick to the facts of the sights without all the joking and music in between. 2. It would be nice if the cruise would go round-trip instead of one-way.

Trying to get your tickets was a nightmare. The location was changed, so we went to the location and no one was there!! We were told to go to another location by a representative for another company, which we did and finally managed to find someone! When you’ve never been to London and it’s a boiling hot day with two kids you don’t want to be tracking around London for tickets!!! Maybe an idea to send electronically to people emails!! When we finally spoke to a representative he went on to sa...

The tour was great and great value. We did the London Eye and the cruise first thing. Then stopped at the London Tower and took a bus to Buckingham. I only wished the bus run a bit later. We wanted to take the West tour at 6 and there were no more buses. I had to take the underground.

I did these activities the first full day I was in London and it was well worth it! The bus helped me get my directional bearings of the streets, as it's a web not a grid. I liked that you get a set of ear phones to listen to the audio guide on the bus as you come upon landmarks and neighborhoods. If you want to visit the landmark, monument, or explore more, you just hop off and get on another Big Bus when done. A great and convenient way to see the city - there is so much! The London Eye and...

I would definitely recommend this full day activities. Keep in mind to start early if you have kids. They will keep stop you every now and then for the food and etc. We started the big bus tour in the last hour. Otherwise, it was great day around London, and it’s worth it.

Worth the money. I really enjoyed every part of it and it felt like I knew London immediately after this full day activity. I saw landmarks that I wouldn't have in case I hadn't booked the activity. The cruise was a very pleasant touch to it. We did the full bus tour in the morning. We got on the cruise around 1pm and then continued half the tour by bus once again until at 4pm when we had the slot for the London Eye.
