You may be asking yourself ‘what exactly is a hop-on, hop-off London Bus tour?’ To put things simply, this means that you can jump aboard and step off an open-top London tour bus as many times as you wish.
However, these types of London tours offer so much more than a convenient way to get around the city. These hop-on, hop-off bus tours have been specially designed for the needs of worldwide tourists coming to London who want to see as many of the famous London sites as possible.
These open-top guided tour buses give you the flexibility to plan your day in advance where you can choose to hop off at the many designated stops along the route to explore the area by foot. Rather than the bus waiting for you while you enjoy experiencing one of the many London landmarks, you simply hop back on to another bus when you have finished exploring and are ready to continue your journey.
How Happy Tourist can help you
Many of the open-top London tour buses offer live, English-speaking guides to explain the many iconic sites along the way to tourists taking the trip. However, if you don’t speak English at all or your English is poor, you can instead take a tour bus that offers Indian commentary instead.
There are selected bus tours that offer pre-recorded commentary in 12 different languages, so with the help of Happy Tourist, we can book your tickets on a London bus tour that provides you with Hindi Audio Commentary.
This means you can be secure in the knowledge that you can relax and explore all of London’s top tourist attractions while having Hindi audio commentary along the way. When you are happy to hop off to further explore an attraction, you can then simply jump back on the next bus to come along that is part of the tour and carry on listening to the guide in comfort.
What you can see on a London bus tour
You don’t need to hop off the bus if you don’t want to. You are welcome to stay on the bus for the whole of the circular loop as the bus winds its way through the streets of London. You can sit in comfort from your seat while observing the hustle and bustle of the busy streets.
There is no shortage of iconic sights to see on your journey, including the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace.
You get to see the official home of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, and this is one of the most popular stops for tourists taking a bus tour of the capital. Originally a London townhouse built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1703, Buckingham House was turned into a royal palace in 1761 by George III for Queen Charlotte.
Choosing to stop off here, you can visit three different areas of the Palace, and take a look over the famous Buckingham Palace Garden, the largest private garden in London.
Dine at an Indian Restaurant
Just because you are staying in London doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy delicious, authentic Indian food! Happy Tourist can arrange for you to dine in an Indian restaurant and discover an exclusively vegetarian menu that includes both traditional and contemporary Indian dishes that have been carefully crafted for modern diners seeking out authentic, yet contemporary dining experiences.
