I had some reservations about the open top bus tour due to its price (£24 per person, £22 online for 24 hours) but i couldnt have been more wrong. It was absolutely fantastic! There are different routes depending on what you want to see, we (Me, 26 and my girlfriend, 20) first went on the 'Yellow' route as we liked the prospect of a live tour guide. When we boarded and went upstairs to sit down we realised that there was no live tour guide but instead a loud recorded voice (i assume its due to the time we went not being popular enough); I thought this would take away from the enjoyment of the tour but it didnt at all it was absolutely brilliant! Got to see a lot of cool . Read the complete review

Last year i went to london and went on the The Original London Sightseeing Tour. It was a great way to see the capital city from an open top bus.

There are 2 very similar sightseeing tours of London - The Original Tour and The Big Bus and are very similarly priced at £24 and £25 respectively.

Sue (my partner) and I chose The Original Tour as we were planning a hectic few days in London and with everything else going on wanted to keep costs down - this we achieved by using up a lot of my old Tesco clubcard vouchers, and for this we only actually paid £8 which in view of what we got for our money was absolutely ...

In September I am going to be moving away from London and a couple of months ago I realised that although I've been living in London for a year and a half I haven't seen much of London. My first step to fix this problem was to take a bus tour around London. I love to learn about history so the tour seemed like the perfect day out. -Buying the Tickets- We bought the tickets at Visitors Centre in Trafalgar Square. We did have some difficulty finding the visitors centre, but this is my own fault entirely as I didn't bother to look for directions, I just turned up in Trafalgar Square and hoped that I would be able to see it! Fortunately the building is very ... Read the complete review
