Photo Friday: London From a Double Decker Bus

When arriving into a major city, a tour is a fun and easy way to help you get oriented more quickly while giving you a chance to see most of the sights.  The ability to narrow a list of must-see sights down when traveling with kids is key, but that can be difficult when there is a long list of great things to visit. The bus tours take care of that. You get a highlight of everything from the comfort of the bus. This saves those little feet from trekking all over. Take advantage of the hop-on hop-off options and go back a visit the sights that piqued your interest.

In London, there are many choices of double-decker bus companies and I found myself struggling to select which company to use, as they all have features that they market to families.  What made a significant difference was having a live guide. My kids had no interest in the headsets, however, when we got back on with a live guide, the guide sustained their interest and the kids retained so much more of the information.

If the guide isn’t great, again, take advantage of the hop-on hop-off benefit and just get on another bus. We used the Big Bus Company.

Everyone was so happy and loved the novelty of the bus experience. We also loved the views. Enjoy!
