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!

We reserved a big bus bundle package including London Eye which the date (2 Jan) we went there was extremely full. The guy who served me at the service point was really helpful to get me a timeslot for the London Eye to avoid the disappointment to my family.

The tourist bus experience has been a success and accompanied by the London Eye and the cruise on the Thames makes it exceptional

Have tickets printed at one of the Big Bus sellers. Nice route, well organized.

Super friendly and helpful staff! Many stops! Highly recommended!
