London eye highly recommended. River cruise was a bit disappointing. Is a one way ticket for a cruise on the Thames. The hop on hop off is good in itself, but in London it is more of an alternative to public transport because you really have to get off the bus if you want to see the sights. In Barcelona, for example, you see much more from the bus.

Loved the London eye and river cruise (the guide on the boat was funny and made the experience even better). The bus tour was average, quite confusing to where we heading etc, some bus drivers really helpful others not so much. Overall was a great experience and certainly would do it again.

Booking is fairly straightforward. We decided to do the London Eye, Thames boat trip and the big bus tour. When we arrived at our meeting point to meet the rep, we were told the eye was fully booked out and should of booked it online. Then the rep had a quick look and found us a slot for 12.15pm and we were very grateful. The whole experience was well worth the money and are looking forward to doing more excursions with the company on a return visit next year.

The hop on hop off feature was great however it wasn't made clear that you needed to reserve a timeslot to ride the London Eye. When we checked in to get our ticket for the bus they told us the Eye was sold out for the day which was pretty upsetting. The Big Bus concierge at the Westminister Bridge stop told us to check back at noon to see if anything had opened up. We did so and we were able to secure a kudos to him for his customer service! It just needs to be plainly spelled out ...

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.
