Create your own personalized sightseeing itinerary with a Big Bus hop-on hop-off sightseeing pass, the perfect choice for independent travelers. No matter how long you have in London, a 1-, 2-, or 3-day pass allows you to explore at your own pace. Tick off all of London’s landmarks on three different routes, one of which features live commentary, and see the city from a different perspective on an included Thames River cruise and walking tour.
What to Expect
Redeem your Bug Bus bus voucher at any of the stops along three comprehensive routes. Opt for seating on the open-air upper deck or covered lower deck, depending on the weather, and listen to live or recorded commentary depending on the route chosen.
Either stay on the bus for the entire loop of each route, or disembark whenever an attraction captures your attention. You can also plan ahead if you’d like and have a day’s itinerary laid out and ready. Information regarding when to take your optional walking tours or River Cruise is included on your voucher.
Some popular stops include the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London, and Kensington Gardens.

Caron was fab!

We had Caron as our tour guide and found her excellent for our first overview of London. She was clearly spoken, highly knowledgeable and had many fascinating anecdotes for all areas. She made the tour wonderfully enjoyable :)

Great way to see the city!

We had a wonderful time, all the guides were great (though Fay was my favorite). There are often staff at the stops who are happy to help. We're on our way to Paris & we've already bought our Big Bus tickets for there.
