We didn’t meet any of support staff on bus stops. We didn’t get information from the bus (it was a horrible traffic, we knew that, but we waiting an hour for the bus on the yellow rout in afternoon. )

We loved the audio guide in the tour. It was really interesting to listen to, clear and easy to understand. It would have been better if there were more buses available more frequently. Had to wait almost 40 min to get the first bus from Buckingham Palace, whereas we saw buses from other services arriving at the stop more frequently.

The bus driver ( referred to above as the guide) was extremely rude and impatient, and not helpful at all. The TOOTBUS we were on had issues with the audio guide with the language changing on us every few minutes. Most frustrating to have to constantly change channels looking for the English audio!

We liked the ability to get on and off. However, changing from one color route to another was very confusing. When asking for help we did not receive definitive directions. I think it would help to indicate what routes are available at each bus stop if not all colors stop there, especially after the Thames boat ride.

Very good tour to get to know the city, especially if you have little time. It has the plus of the boat ride on the Thames, with a local guide, if you know English better and if not also because you enjoy the tour. I did it at sunset and it was magical.
