Overview
Create your own personalized sightseeing itinerary with a Big Bus hop-on hop-off sightseeing pass, the perfect choice for independent travelers. No matter how long you have in London, a 1-, 2-, or 3-day pass allows you to explore at your own pace. Tick off all of London’s landmarks on three different routes, one of which features live commentary, and see the city from a different perspective on an included Thames River cruise and walking tour.
What to Expect
Redeem your Bug Bus bus voucher at any of the stops along three comprehensive routes. Opt for seating on the open-air upper deck or covered lower deck, depending on the weather, and listen to live or recorded commentary depending on the route chosen.
Either stay on the bus for the entire loop of each route, or disembark whenever an attraction captures your attention. You can also plan ahead if you’d like and have a day’s itinerary laid out and ready. Information regarding when to take your optional walking tours or River Cruise is included on your voucher.
Some popular stops include the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London, and Kensington Gardens.

I would suggest getting their app. It will answer your question but I’d be really cautious about buying a ticket for this tour. We had a terrible experience!
