Your Experience

This hop-on, hop-off bus tour is the perfect way to discover the city of London. With three whole days to spend at your leisure, this tour will allow you to soak in every drop of British culture and London’s famous landmarks. You can begin your tour in any of the 45 Big Bus stations in the city and hop on to one of the double-decker buses.

The tour allows you to choose from four distinct routes. These are the Orange ‘Magical Merlink’ Route, the Green Link, the Blue Route, and the Red Route. You can discover some of the most famous attractions such as Parliament Square, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, and the Marble Arch on the Orange Route. It is also called the Magical Merlink. Check out Madame Tussauds at Baker Street, and the London Eye on London’s Southbank. The Green Link begins at Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden and takes you through Bloomsbury. It connects you with Euston and St Pancras stations and gives you an exquisite view the British Museum as you travel. You can always get off at any point and change routes as you please, hopping onto the Red Route or Blue Route as well. The Blue Route offers amazing sights such as Kensington Palace and attractions like Mayfair and the Marble Arch are located at the intersection of the blue and red routes. You have three days to explore, so you can take your time on each route.

If you thought the tour ended there, you’re in for a treat. This ticket comes inclusive of a two-way river cruise on the Thames! You can travel from Westminster to Greenwich or the other way around. You will also have the choice to take a break at the Tower of London, which is in between, as you travel. There are several sites that may not be easily reachable by bus. You can still get to these places by taking a stroll, as a part of the walking tour.

Living in London I've never really been interested in this sort of thing. Couple of cousins from America came over and I ended up going with them for this tour - Absolutely loved it!
