Big Bus Tours

Big Bus Tours is a sight-seeing company. They’re hop-on hop-off buses take you to all the major landmarks in a city, where you can then get off and explore at your leisure.They run worldwide, in 18 different cities including cities in Europe, Australasia, Middle East and the USA. There are recorded commentaries in a multitude of languages and sometimes live guides. Generally you buy passes for 24- or 48-hours, so you have plenty of time to see the sights.

About Big Bus Tours

Big Bus Tours was formed in May 2011, by the merging of two companies. The London based Big Bus Company and the Paris based Les Cars Rouges came together. Each company had over 20 years experience in tours, so they know what they’re doing!

Big Bus Tours aim to ‘Think Global, Act Local’. They fully understand each city they offer tours in, not just the landmarks, but the character and culture too. They combine great service and unique sightseeing tours to give you the best tour from the open top bus. Being hop-on hop-off, the tours are flexible and you can do it as quick or as slow as you like (well within the time limit set by your ticket).

Seeing A City

With Big Bus Tours you buy a 24- or 48-hour pass for most cities (some have 3-day passes). Some cities have more than one route, as there’s lots to see! You often get extras with your passes too! This is different in each city. Your pass may also include:

  • Walking Tours;
  • River Cruises;
  • Night Tours;
  • Book of Rewards Vouchers.

Big Bus Tours offer an easy way to see a lot of a city in a day or two. So if you’re short on time they’re a great way to see the highlights. It also means you don’t have to pay for public transport if the sights are spread out, so can be a great way to save money too! If you’re looking to see a lot in a short space of time, Big Bus Tours may be the one for you!

I’m Nat, the backpacker behind natpacker. From the UK, I was bitten by the travel bug during a round the world trip in my early twenties. Since then I have been determined to see as much of this world as possible. My passion for travel led me to start up this blog, partly to record my adventures and partly to inspire others to travel.
