  • NOR SYAHIDATUN SALMI 9 Dec 2018
    Good experience to view London tourist spot and understand the history beyond..
  • Viverly 6 Dec 2018
    There was one unhelpful man on the marble arch stop who prefers smoking than to answer my question. Other than that everyone else was very helpful!
  • vikas 22 Nov 2018
    Big bus is good option for day sightseeing activity.. good guide and in evening they drop nearby hotel location.
  • SUZANNA BINTE 19 Nov 2018
    Hop on and off to get around the city for the most wonderful sights and prominent buildings. Easy to use and safe time travelling.
  • Andrea Samantha 19 Nov 2018
    Always a good time hopping on and off the Big Bus.
  • Luningning 31 Oct 2018
    Convenient to use. Aside from the guide, the Drivers are also very accomodating for simple questions.
  • Denise 31 Oct 2018
    It was as expected. Get this if you want to breeze through the tourist highlights in one go. The tour guide we had wasn’t as engaging as I expected, and didn’t offer a lot of information about the sights.
  • Reyes 23 Oct 2018
    Get a 2 day pass to see all the sight, we had a great time even if it was raining that day. They offer raincoats so u don’t get wet😁
  • Alice 19 Oct 2018
    The bus went though the main sight seeing points, the pass including the cruises which was nice to see London eye, London bridge from the other view.
