Purchased a two day ‘Premier’ ticket to take a friend from USA around London. The whole experience was fantastic. We did ‘Red’, ‘Orange’, and ‘Blue’ Tours plus the River Thames Cruise. It was outstanding in every respect - the site coverage, timing, and key stops...More

We did the big red bus tour on a Monday morning in September. It apparently took longer than usual because there were roadworks going on, but that didn't spoil anything. We had Ian as our commentator who was full of amazing stories and loads of...More

Carin was the tour guide. She was really great. We stayed on 30 minutes longer than planned since she was so good.

We recently were in Europe and used big bus tours in Italy, France and England. In both Rome and Paris I was extremely happy with the service and would recommend them to others, but unfortunately I can not say the same about London. We spent...More

Two ways of using the Big Bus. If you just go for one day, don't hop off, unless it is to go to a different route. Complete each loop in the same bus and you'll get to know the City in one day and you...More

Great way to see the city and get a lay of the land. They take you around to all the key sites, and add commentary. Our tour guides were so-so, the first better than the second, but overall not a big deal. Just driving by...More

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw

Hi Sarah, I'm sorry, but we didn't visit the Eye as we had done it a few years ago, so I'm unable to answer your question.
