Founded over 65 years ago The Original Tour is now the largest and most popular sightseeing operator in the world and has established itself as THE essential introduction to London.
With a history dating back to the early 1900’s, The Original London Sightseeing Tour is the first sightseeing tour of its kind. The Original Sightseeing Tour provides more than just a great way to travel around London, in 1951, at the time of the Festival Of Britain and now the largest single sightseeing operator in the world; it has since become the essential introduction to London.
The Hop On Hop Off service allows you to board any of the tour routes at over 90 different stops with a commentary in English and a choice of 9 Languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Portuguese and Mandarin Chinese) on selected routes.
You can relax and enjoy the tour, listening to commentary, whilst your children are entertained and informed by the highly acclaimed ‘Kids Club’ commentary and their FREE London activity packs. The Original Tour is the only tour operator to offer audio commentaries specially designed for children.
Services are frequent and reliable with tours running daily, every 15-20 minutes. The Original Tour allows you to experience all the magical sights and sounds of London in a comfortable and secure environment. All tours are fully approved by Visit London.
