Worst ride ever!
Trinidad272
, May 2019
I’ve done a few Viator tours and bus tours all over Europe. By far, the one in London through Golden Tours was the worst ever. The signage and maps for the bus stops was horrible. I had to call to find out where it stopped near our hotel after searching around the area on the map. We have to wait 15 minutes for the first pick up spot. We had to wait close to an hour at the Hyde Park/Park Lane spot. I called Golden Tours again re the delay. There was no apology only a feeble explanation as to the reason. The bus driver was not very helpful re where to get off for the British Museum. I’ll think twice before booking with Viator Hop On/Hop Off bus your. As a result of all the waiting, we didn’t get to do the river tour. On the other hand, there were plenty of Big Bus Tour buses that went by.

Bus stops were difficult to find. Buses were not as frequent as advertised. It was actually the only bad part of our London trip.

, Jan 2018
The hop on hop off bus isn't the best way to get around London. London is such a huge city and it takes quite a bit of time to get anywhere. Traffic was awful. The Boat Ride was nice, the pier is right by the London Eye. However make sure you read your exit card carefully. We did not read it carefully and our 20 minute boat ride turned into an hour and half boat ride because the boat is also a public transportation boat. We had to wait for the boat to turn around and head back to London. I don't think we will be purchasing this tour ticket in the future.

Details supplied by Viator at the time of booking on the 9th December 2016 on BLUE routing incorrect, Viator should review and keep its booking information up to date or direct customers to the correct information website, the BLUE routing stops westward at Trafalgar Square!! No information supplied with booking on timing and use of boat ride ticket. If you want to tour Hyde Park you need the RED bus.

Très bien, mais gare aux bouchons et à la perte de temps. Bonne manière de visiter Londres quand les pieds commencent à être douloureux. Facilité de trouver les arrêts et conducteur très arrangeant pour descendre où on veut.
