A Helpful Friend at Every Stop

LONDON AND PARIS IN MID-DECEMBER! - We booked the bargain ticket for London that gave us 2 days of sightseeing plus a free River boat cruise. There were also free walking tours to key places including Buckingham Palace to watch the changing of the guards. Because we couldn't do miles of walking, the Hop On & Off tours were an economical solution to our needs. The service was beyond our expectations because there was a BBT person to give us help, advice and directions wherever went. The commentary was very good with some real characters talking to us about the major points of interest plus stories, legends and tales about related people and events. Doing this in December was really, really cold on top so sat downstairs most of the time. Luckily, London stayed dry and we had some great sunny weather.
Unluckily, Paris was very wet on the day we chose to take the bus so we did get very wet and cold as the best views were from upstairs. The free rain ponchos are a nice gesture but a rain canopy upstairs would have been preferred. Also in Paris, BBT had arranged for one of the other bus companies to take their customers but we weren't advised of the arrangement so we spent some time trailing around in the rain trying to find the bus stop before we found out. However, it was still a good way for us to see and hear about the important landmarks of Paris and it would have been totally brilliant on a better day.
