You first have to find an employee of the "Big Bus Hop on Hop off" on Westminsterbridge. He will then print out a long receipt, depending on the number of people, we were 5, which is valid as an admission ticket. At the same time, this employee also books the time slot for the journey on the London Eye. For us, the last time window was exactly 4 minutes after our arrival. Everything worked out anyway and we had a nice day with relatively good weather.

It is a very good combination for two boys of 14 and 11 years old. They loved the big tour bus which allowed them to discover the most famous places in London. We just need to review the comments, they must be more enriching and poignant. The London Eye was a nice experience too. The boat trip on the Thames is the icing on the cake, the team were helpful and made the crossing fun and interesting with lots of humour. Thanks for the concept!

All in all a very good experience with three small caveats. Plus: easy booking, good memory, actually enough stops (see negative 1), tour in the compilation (bus, London Eye, boat tour) optimal for us Negative: 1. Unfortunately, at the Aldwych bus stop and transfer point, no bus came for a long time green line so we didn't get to explore that part 2. The red line was short cut and missed two stops, annoying as that's where we wanted to get off. 3. How/when the booking for the London Eye is made is not clear from the tour description and the documents supplied, but we have gathered from the comments
