Whilst the Big Bus Tour is a convenient way to get around London for sightseers, the morning trips were frustratingly slow. It took much longer than we had expected to get from our pick-up point to the Tower of London because you spend so long at each stop waiting for people to purchase tickets for the bus and other attractions. That being said in the afternoons returning home or heading to other attractions it was fantastic as there is no delay at each stop. The recorded commentary is informative but the live tour much more enjoyable. If you have time to spare a great way of getting around, if you want to get to attractions early in the morning use the tube.
