Why Book The Big Bus Tour Of London Online?

The Big Bus Company operate a hop on hop of sightseeing tour service daily throughout Central London stopping at all of the capital's major tourist attractions and places of interest.  The company operate a fleet of open top double decker buses that run at intervals of around 10 minutes and the £32 adult ticket (£12 for children) gives customers a 24 hour timeline for using the service from the moment they get onto the first bus.

Included in the price of the ticket of the London open top bus tour is a choice of a live commentary on the red bus route or a recorded commentary in your language of choice on the blue bus route as well as a complimentary river cruise operated by City Cruises giving customers an opportunity to cruise up and down the Thames from Westminster down as far as Greenwich.

The tour guides make the tour a fascinating experience as they are all knowledgable about the city and it's colourful history and as the company tends to recruit their guides from an acting background they tend to be quite lively and animated making the whole experience a lot of fun and an ideal way for the first time visitor to London to get a decent and informative overview of what the city has to offer.

BmyConcierge Review

We have been working very closely with the Big Bus Company since the early 1990's when they started out running a single loop tour from Marble Arch with a handful of buses. The management team have always been very forward thinking and innovative and they were a much needed breath of fresh air to the London tourist industry which at the time was in need of something new and exciting for the leisure traveller visiting London.  The Big Bus tour of London has more or less become an essential part of London sightseeing, especially for the first time visitor as it gives customers the opportunity to explore our great city at their own pace without being ushered around on a tight schedule   Customers with a little foresight taking the tour also have the opportunity to select which places of interest they are most interested in and by purchasing these attraction tickets in advance online or through their hotel concierges can avoid the queues which can save a lot of time and be quite stressful especially for families with young children.  All in all we continue to support The Big Bus Company and give them a massive thumbs up and recommend this as a fun way to explore London that won't burn too big a whole in your pocket!
