Big Bus Tours is the largest operator of open-top sightseeing bus tours in the whole wide world. Fuelling the spirit of adventure in over 20 cities, across four continents. Beginning with a fleet of three, today hundreds of buses and guides are helping over four million tourists explore each year. And we’re not slowing down anytime soon.

If you need even more convincing, here are just some of the reasons why we think a bus tour should be the number one thing you do on your city break:

Bus tours are convenient

A Big Bus tour is the best way to be introduced to a city. Perfect if you’ve just arrived, are short on time or simply want to sightsee the relaxing way. Turn up, hop on, and let us show you around. You’ll learn fascinating facts and stories via digital commentary or onboard guides as you pass by all the best bits the city has to offer. Forget the faff of public transport, you don’t need to worry about the route, the traffic, or any prior planning. Consider us your chauffeur.

With the free Big Bus Tours mobile app, your day will also run smoothly with the bus stop finder feature and real-time bus tracking. We’ll even show you what’s around for when you hop off.

Bus tours are good value

When you book a Big Bus tour, you’re getting so much more than a transportation service. You’ll learn about the city you are exploring along the way, and will always have our expert guides on hand to help. As you board the bus, you will receive complimentary earphones to plug into the digital commentary and a brochure mapping out the city for you. Log into our free WiFi service and download the Big Bus mobile app for ideas on how to fill the rest of your time in this city. It’s your pocket-sized personal sightseeing guide.   

Bus tours have expert local guides

All our guides have the insider knowledge on the city you are visiting. So always feels free to ask them any questions you might have. Where to go for dinner? Which shows to catch? What activities there are for kids? They’ve got all the answers.

Bus tours offer a variety of routes

When we plan our routes at Big Bus HQ, we put ourselves in the shoes of the explorer. What would we want to see and where would we want to go? We understand that one route doesn’t suit all, so we split these out for your convenience. Want to check out the beaches in Sydney? Take the Bondi Tour. Got tickets to London’s most popular attractions? Hop on the Orange Route. Keen to explore the artistic enclave of Montmarte? You catch our drift…

Bus tours give your feet a rest

On a Big Bus tour, you’ll cover an entire city with very minimal effort. With our flexible sightseeing service, you’ll do as much walking as you choose. Or for a truly relaxing experience, you’re welcome to stay on the bus the entire circuit and let us take you for a scenic spin!
