I enjoyed the many destinations that the hop on hop off bus tour had to offer. My first time experience with the Original Tour London was not so great. Communication about pickup locations known and unknown was not clear, end times on certain tour routes were not communicated well. Customer service with some of the Original Bus tour drivers was not a friendly one.

Unfortunately we had a short version of bus tour due to protesters in London blocking the roads The boat trip for us was the best part of this tour

Well worth the price. I did notice that one bus had more/different commentary than another I was on earlier for the same route. For that reason alone, I took the yellow route twice. Enjoyed and would use this service again if I am lucky enough to visit again.

The hop on hop off bus is something that my husband and I do every where that we travel. This was my children's first time to London and my daughter said this is her favorite part of the vacation.

Overall, my experience was good and I enjoyed this tour using the 24 hour pass. I liked that a walking tour for the changing of guards in Buckingham Palace and Thames River Cruise are included in the pass. I managed to do both. I skipped the walking tour and went straight to viewing the changing of guards. It was a long wait though for the boat ride for the river cruise. Wasn't able to complete all lines (missed the orange line) given the limited time. If you have time, better to get the 48-hour or 2-day pass to maximize the tour and do it at a relaxed pace.

I found the Hop-on-Hop-Off bus helpful, but I would also say that there were times when it was difficult to find room on the buses. Most of the time we were able to get a seat.
