The tube may be efficient but you miss so much of London when traveling underground. With this ticket package, see the sights of the city from an open-top bus, hopping on and off as inspiration strikes. Take to the river on a riverboat and choose between two walking tours: perfect for first-time visitors or anyone with limited time.
  • See London’s key attractions in three ways: by bus, by boat, and on foot
  • Enjoy 24 hours’ access to three hop-on hop-off bus routes with free Wi-Fi
  • Choose between a Beatles walking tour or a royal family walking tour
  • Ride a boat between London Eye and Tower Pier or vice versa
What to Expect
Start your tour at Paddington, Leicester Square, King’s Cross, or Victoria: Your bus ticket is good for 24 hours of sightseeing over three routes. Listen to the audio-guide commentary, share pictures of what you’re seeing using the onboard Wi-Fi, and hop on and off the bus as and when the mood strikes. Your package includes two other bonuses: a walking tour and a Thames boat ride. Choose between a Beatles walking tour, focused on the famous band, and a royal family walking tour, focused on their favorite haunts, and enjoy a short ride between Tower Pier and London Eye.

Don’t book the hop on and off bus tour. There are like no buses around and you wait for a long time for a ride. Only gave a 2 star because the driver back to the airport did a fine job.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. We never wish any of our customers to leave disappointed in the service we provide, with changes being constantly made thanks to customers feedback, these are valuable to the company in enhancing customer experiences and to ensure the necessary upgrades and amendments are made where possible. We strive to run our service of every 20-30 minutes, as advertised, each day until the end of service, with the last tours at 16:30pm. We do however, also have our complimentary Yellow route which is a collection and drop off in the mornings, and running in the evenings until around 8pm, allowing customers to return to their original destinations and local hotels. We are pleased to say that we do now have our Golden Tours App, which allows customers to locate the times of buses from stops, details of the route maps, and also customers can listen to the audio commentary through their own devices. Thank you for your feedback,
