Experience London in 24 hours/48 hours
The concept is simple: Hop on a bus and go explore London. You decide when to get off, and when you have seen enough, you just get on the next bus to continue your tour.
With four bus lines and over 90 stops, you can cover nearly all of London at your own pace. On all the buses either tour guides or audio guides are available to tell you about the city and its sights.
The Original Tour includes a sightseeing boat tour down the River Thames. The boat sails between Westminster and Greenwich on a regular basis. Please ask a representative from The Original Tour for your boat ticket when you pick up your tour tickets at one of The Original Tour’s exchange points.
How does it work?
When you book your tickets, choose the date you arrive in London as the 'Valid from' date. Your tickets will be valid for one month from the 'Valid from' date.
Select the quantity of tickets you need and click on 'Search'. Then you choose the number of adult or child tickets you need. Child tickets are only available if adult tickets are purchased. You may then add tickets to other attractions or transportation in London to your purchase for your party.

Shortly after your booking is complete your e-ticket will be send directly to your email address entered at time of bookoing. Just print it out and bring it with you to London.

Please remember that the person who has booked the tickets needs to present a valid photo ID (e.g. passport) when exchanging e-tickets.

Very Good 4.0Result from 1 customer reviews
This was a very comfortable way to see the sights of London. I am so thankful my friend recommended it. There are so many sites to see that I am glad I only bought one optional tour on the London eye. I almost purchased a tour for the Big Ben Clocktower. However I would not have had time for that one also. In March 2013 the changing of the guard at Buckingham palace is on even days at 11:30. Boy what a crowd. If you want a good view you should be there early and I read that the best of view is from the statue across the road. By the time I went down to Buckingham palace for the changing of the guard and then took the ride on the London Eye, walked around the Parliament buildings and West Minister Abby and took the boat cruise on the river I was pretty well done. Then it was nice to ride the bus and see the other sights of the town.
The arrangements were very easy to make both online and on the street. The buses were very comfortable but the best view is on top. It can be pretty cold up there but there are some covered seats
