Our fixed itinerary "Timebus Tourer" sightseeing package returned for 2017. This package is now over, but look out for future announcements as it is likely to return for 2018.
A Traditional London Routemaster bus will be provided, with the familiar, friendly radiator grille and half width cab, restored to Timebus' exceptionally high standard. It will normally be our Open Topper with Doors - a 60 seater, with 24 downstairs and 36 on the top deck. If prolonged rain is likely on the day of the tour, however, we will switch to a 57 seater covered top Routemaster Express instead.
Timebus Tourer reservations are being taken for weekdays (Monday to Friday) only, from April to October 2017 inclusive, subject to availability (Bespoke Packages are, of course, available at any time).
We can collect your guests from almost any hotel, office or mainline railway station in Central London, and return them after the tour.
Your Blue Badge guide will also show you around or inside buildings and attractions on foot; breaking the journey and providing a more personal experience of the sights.

†To enjoy a walking tour inside a building (such as Westminster Abbey or St. Paul's), or for the London Eye, additional charges may apply for admission and other factors.
Advance booking and payment is needed. This can be made by bank transfer, or with any of the cards below by telephone.
We only book complete, organized groups (we do not sell individual tour tickets or provide 'hop-on/hop-off' services). We regret that on the Timebus Tourer, decoration is not available and alcohol is not allowed.
