Live London in 24/48 hours

The concept is simple: board a bus and explore the best of London. Decide when to get off, and when you've had enough, you choose when to re-board the next bus. With four routes and more than 90 stops, cover almost all of London at its pace, in its time. All the buses have either tour guides or audio guides available to give all the main details about the city and its attractions.

The Original Tour includes a sightseeing tour by boat on the River Thames. The boat sails between Westminster and Greenwich frequently. (Please ask a member of the Original Tour team for your boat ride ticket when you pick up your tickets at one of The Original Tour points.)

How it works?

When booking your tickets, you should choose the date of your arrival in London as the "valid from" date. Your tickets will be valid for one month after the date selected as "valid from".

Choose the number of tickets and click "search". Choose the number of adult and children tickets required. Children's tickets are available only in conjunction with adult tickets. Finally, select tickets for other attractions or public transport passes if you wish to include these products in this same reservation.

How are tickets sent?

Soon after the confirmation of the reservation, the voucher is sent to your electronic mail. You’ll be asked to print this document and take it with you to London.

Once in London you will need to exchange your voucher for the bus tickets. Pick up your voucher anywhere on bus routes or directly with drivers. You can also go to the main departure points of buses if you need additional information or assistance - The Original Tours always has staff members available to answer questions that drivers may not know.

The main departure points for buses are:

1) The Original Tour Visitor Center on Trafalgar Square: 17 to 19 on Cockspur Street
2) Marble Arch: at subway exit 3
3) Piccadilly Circus: on Whitcomb Street
4) Victoria: In the heart of The Grosvenor Hotel

Where does the tour begin?

Just board the bus you want after picking up your tickets. The buses leave from the same points where the exchange centers are located.

Ticket Categories

Your Hop-On Hop-Off tickets have a validity of 24 or 48 hours.

Are there children's tickets?

Yes, for children between 5-15 years old. Children up to 4 years old participate free of charge when accompanying a paying adult. Children's tickets are available only in conjunction with adult tickets.

The first trip starts at 8:30 and the last at 8:00 p.m. During the winter, the last bus departs at 5:00 p.m.
The Original Tour is one of the best ways to explore London with ease and also at affordable costs. Quality holidays don't have to be expensive. Thanks for reading this review.
