Bigbustours

Okay but subject to regular traffic disruption and detours straying from the organised route

We decided to purchase the two day ticket over the weekend 1st and 2nd June.
We picked up the bus near the grosvenor hotel and the first part of our route was done using the recorded taped tour which was fine. As the day progressed we changed buses near St Pauls and the tour developed into a shambles. Large portions of the tour were missed out because of various detours related to road works and public demonstrations. At one stage we moved onto a bus which should have been live commentary - there was no tour guide only the driver. Eventualy a guide got on called "Jim" who reminded us frequently to leave positive reviiews on Tripadvisor !. Jim had apparently been caught short at a comfort break, missed the bus, hence the lack of commentary. Given the amount of water Jim seemed to be drinking and the appearance of being "hung over" I have my own suspicions.Eventually we gave up on the bus and walked round the remaining part of the tour on day 1.
Day 2 was slightly better, and the schedule seemed to be more on track, but again there were detours. Unexpectedly, the best part of both days was the short river cruise. The commentary was well delivered informative and with a humorous touch.
The buses were clean and modern. I doubt if we would consider again using on a future visit.
