"Tour buses." Tour buses Tip by planxty
Tour buses, London: 17 reviews and 15 photos
I suppose if you had extremely limited time in London (perhaps only one day) the tour buses which abound may offer a service. they follow set routes, and have a hop on / hop off policy so you can get off as and when you like. they do also offer either a live or recorded commentary.
At a typical priice of £20 per adult for a 24 hour ticket (Big Bus Company) it is certainly not a cheap option. A little research done before you come to London will net you the same experience for a fraction of the price on ordinary public transport.
Unique Suggestions: You don't have to do it. See my alternative suggestion.
Fun Alternatives: The alternative is to buy a travelcard for London Transport, either bus and / or tube. This has the advantage that you can also visit the numerous less visited attractions that are not on the standard bus tour route, so you also get to see a bit more of the city that way.
