A simpatia dos motoristas e apoio e disponibilidade em geral. Os circuitos muito onteressantes e que permitiram ter uma ideia generalizada de Londres. Obrigado

Appreciate the convenience of ordering online, however it didn't give all the different options of the package - which we found out in-person with the ticketer. Overall the hop-on, hop-off was great for exploring the city. Traffice was a nightmare though and it did take far longer to navigate. There should be signs for children to NOT run on the top deck, and NO tussling. The late afternoon bus challenged our last nerves from a family of kids horseing around and making an inordinate amount of noise.

Super, I recommend 100/100 We were able to tour London , the audio guide teaches us lots of fascinating anecdotes There are a lot of buses on the blue and red lines, much less on the Green line.

Due to the demonstrations in support of Palestine, the buses changed all routes. I understand that this is not Bigbus's problem, but Bigbus should have a way to notify new routes through the app to its clients who wait at a bus stop for a long time without any bus passing and without anyone notifying them.

Once we got on the bus all was good, trying to get on was chaos. Joined at Victoria station, first red route bus drove past, not full, a blue route said 'hop on we'll catch it up'. It didn't so we got off at Hyde Park & waited for the next Red route. Reader didn't see our code but kind driver let us on. Route was then very good. We are 77 but fit and English, I was pleased not to be managing as an unfit foreigner.
