The Original London Sightseeing Tour: Hop-on Hop-off
Reviewed by: akjordan, October 2014
If you want an orientation to the City of London I recommend the Hop-on Hop-off tour. It gives you a couple of hours of historical narrative as well as enabling you to get your bearings. The trip also includes a river cruise which gives you a different view of the city. We actually found it a relief from the rain as we could sit and be dry and still see a bit of the city.

This was so worth the money paid. I paid for two days and went on four routes, the red and blue at least three times as I used it to cross over to other parts of the city. The live commentary was great on the day I had that, but the recorded commentary was welll presented and allowed you plenty of time to take photos. The staff were great with their help and suggestions of other things to see once you hopped off. If you are trying to make sense of the area you are in, just keep a rough few notes and the photos will make sense when you go to sort them out. Some of the suggested photo ops were unexpectedly really good.

The man at the shop where we picked up our tickets was really friendly and very helpful. The lady who conducted the live tour was also great - very interesting and knowledgeable (and also dealt very politely and professionally with a few somewhat intoxicated passengers.)

We were helped by a fantastic day of weather which allowed us to use to open top to the fullest extent. The ticket pick up at Trafalgar was easy and friendly. The the divers and tour guides were great and we even had an inspector board the bus who got on with his job efficiently. The bus route was superb and we had river trip tickets thrown in which we did not expect, but it was excellent. Overall a great value and well worth while experience.
