Three in a packet is quite manageable for 2 days and interesting to do

The buses w re ok, easy to follow , we got most of it, the boat ride easy to find, people were very kind, for the tour guide it was quite difficult to follow him while moving and talking as well, too fast both ( we wasted some time to find the meeting point) I was with young people, so we shared the same attitude.

Perfect view - red line

We were really lucky that the weather was so good. We had chosen the red line because you'll get to see the best bits of London but still in a 'small' circle. We first had some issues with finding the bus stop, so some extra information when you order our ticket would be lovely. We loved every minute of it, but around half 4 it was starting to get really crowded and we had to sit downstairs. Which is not really a problem, but some fresh air or air conditioning would have been nice since it was so hot in there.. I would like to try the other lines as well, but then I will go during the week instead of the weekend.

Enjoyable trip

I purchased a 24 hour hop on hop off bus ticket, with a bonus 24 hour extension which was available until 31st March. I went to Golden Tours Visitors Centre at Charing Cross to change the voucher into a ticket. I was given a one day ticket, valid until 5 o'clock - I complained about being cheated and not given the ticket I paid for and requested the voucher back - but this was refused, and was offered and extra day on the hop-on hop-off bus for four english pounds, which I refused. The bus trips were really good, but be aware that you can be cheated out of the trip you paid for and given a tour of lesser value.
