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.

Great way to see the London Highlights

Let’s face it, going to one of the most wonderful, dynamic and eclectic cities in the entire world can be overwhelming. Questions abound like “where do we go first?“ “What should we see?“ “What don’t we need to see?“ “How do we get around the...More

A lot of people

Started off on the bus with the live guide. I think the bus with the prerecorded audio was better and easier to understand. Sometimes the guides have strong accents or do not speak loud enough for Americans to catch everything.

Still a smart way around London for tourists!

We did the hop on / hop off buses 20 years ago, so when we took our 18 year old daughter and her friend this summer, we decided to do it again. These are not GREAT tours, but they are good. Sound on the headphones...More

Brilliant

The tour buses where regular & lots of staff around the city to (at the bus stops) help you. Really good routes covering all the main attractions. A must while in London especially if you want to see all the main attractions.

Not funny at all

When we first got on the bus we had a very engaging, knowledgeable guide from Scotland - not sure of his name but he was excellent. Due to terrible traffic he suggested we get off and do the river cruise. But there was a 40minute...More

Earls Court Station is not on the route, the nearest would be the blue route at Gloucester Road station. You can get there by tube or 15 minutes walk. However, I think you may be better to get the tube to one of the stops... More

Hi - My map says there is a Original Tour stop at Waterloo Station, on York Road. It's the one people use to get to The Eye. Westminster Bridge stop is just a block away as well. Have fun!

There are two or three stops in Westminster, depending on the direction (east or west). Just tell the bus driver where you want to go, and they'll tell you the stop. They are quite helpful. Also, as soon as you get on, there... More
