Great day
, Aug 2022
The entire experience was great. Bus drivers were friendly and very helpful. They Eye was much more than I though, wasn't prepared for the jump on jump off experience. But I have enjoyed my stay in London and my Big DayOut
Big Day Out in London
, Jul 2022
Really friendly drivers, super easy to do, especially with the app, great to have a rest from walking and jump on bus through the day. London Eye and ferry good too.

Scam by Big Bus Company and Viator
, Jul 2022
Horrible experience based on the false advertisement on this site. I specifically searched an evening experience for my family after 4pm. I was suggest "The Big Day out - London Eye Ticket, London Hop-on Hop-Off Tour & River Cruise" costing over $297.96 on 7/26 for the following day. Well when the advertisement states it's a 24hour hop on hop off bus you assume it will go into teh evening and we could hop on and do a night ride or even night cruise. ABSOLUTELY NOT although other bus companies provided rides this late the Big Bus Company closes to rides at 6pm!! AND top it all off it was virtually impossible getting a London Eye ticket the day prior. So basically my family paid over $100 in uber fees to get downtown from LHR to find out we booked a useless package costing us over $297.96!!! Never got to ride a bus or a cruise. What a waste of $$. I requested a refund and both Viator and Big Bus refused which is horrible customer service based on false advertisement. Unfortunately we only had one night in London and it was completely ruined by this company. There were other packages available that I should have booked instead but unfortunately made a wrong choice. Save yourself the headache and pass on Viator and this Bus company. There were 3 other families waiting at the bus stop with us who purchased packages at the airport and were in the exact same boat. Clearly the false advertising is a complete scam!
Perfect Day in London
, Jul 2022
This was a perfect way to do all 3 activities at a good price! It was an amazing experience that made a perfect day!
London on a budget
, Jul 2022
Great way to see the city for not a lot of money. We really enjoyed our day and getting to see London
Great time on river cruise! Commentary was great!
, Jul 2022
Fun was had by all Ages 10-72. Definitely recommend. Bus easy to find, lots of stop though. Commentary on the bus was a bit cheesy but nice to sit.
Great value for money.
, Jul 2022
We were blessed with great weather so, the London Eye trip was very much at it's best. The river cruise was good too. We enjoyed the Big Bus although the commentary was a bit naff, hammy! Great value for money.
Great day! Incorrect description overview
, Jun 2022
We had a wonderful time! I just wish it was clearer that the Big Bus tickets all include the River Cruise. I struggled to book this because the description overview says that the river cruise only runs Fri-Sun and that is incorrect. We rode on Wednesday and it was already included with the bus. We had a wonderful time anyways but would’ve appreciated to have the correct information.
The cruise was good and the London eye was good.
, Jun 2022
Hop on hop off schedules were not accurate. We sat at Station‘s for quite some time and others we couldn’t even find the bus stop. The hours that it said the hop on hop off we’re good for we’re not correct. Using the app didn’t help us with live time or finding the spots. The cruise was good and the London eye was good.

Great day in London to see a lot in one day
, May 2022
We had fun on the bus. The beat part was the water cruise. The narrator was awesome telling about all the buildings down the river. Kept it funny and light so I kept listening. As for the London Eye, I am afraid of heights, and I have to say it was not as bad as I thought it would be. R The ride was smooth and the view was spectacular. Well worth the whole day. A+++
The Eye is well worth seeing. (Pun intended)
, May 2022
The Eye was excellent. Great views and a wonderfull experience. The cruise was interesting and informative but somehow I was expecting more. The Hop-on-Hop-off bus was a total let down. It was extremely crowed. The attendent didn't even check us in and said he would come around when everyone boarded and pass us our ear phones. (HE DIDN'T) Forunately we had our own, however the audio (when we finally got a seat) didn't work, We left the bus after a few stops.
Great surprising Fun tour
, May 2022
I love the audio tour facts and that I can hop on/off enjoying sights in-between stops. Definitely start early if you plan on visiting other attractions in the area.
Great tour. Takes you all...
, Apr 2022

Poor maps
, Apr 2022
Hard to find where the bus stopped. We just had one short trip and we didn’t find where the bus stopped.

Hop on Hop off stops too early
, Apr 2022
The hop on hop off of London is recommended to see London. The blue tour buses come every thirty minutes so this could put a wrinkle in some of your plans. The red tour runs more often but my biggest complaint is they stop entirely too early. They stop at 5:30pm so I had to catch an Uber back to my hotel. I did not get to ride the Thames River Cruise because the buses stopped at 5:07 where I was and the next bus that came to me I asked if he was headed towards the London Eye which is where you catch the boat and he replied no all buses were headed in for the night. I did enjoy the London Eye earlier. This is a good package.
worth it!

People don’t know how to use it London eye, the book times you need to make with one of the buss staff, the site very unhelpful. Beautiful London eye

The weather was very bad the day we had our tickets. We waited for 45 min in rain & wind, thankfully at a covered bus stop, for a hop-on-off buss and it never came. The London eye wasn’t running due to high winds & the river looked too scary to be out in it. We never scanned our tickets so hopefully Viator will allow us to use them another day.
