Very nice activity, we took advantage of the various stops to see where to visit the monuments. The guided tour in several languages allows you to know the history of the city and is very pleasant!

Definitely the best way to explore the city! Start as early as possible, otherwise it's not enough. and if possible two day passes to visit all stations in peace. Otherwise great

A great way to see the main tourists sights in London. From the top floor of the bus you can appreciate the architecture of the buildings which you don’t see on foot. Well worth it.
