Purchased platinum tickets directly from their website for London. Had a very frustrating experience to say the least. Buses were running well over 30 minute intervals and both the red and blue lines ran in the same direction, which makes no sense. The app tracking didn't work for some buses. Lots of time wasted! Over 2 days, I was only able to use this service for one partial bus ride. When in London, don't use this tour. Try the Golden Tours buses; they were all over London both directions.

Took a tour today and attempted to use this app. Live tracking didn't always work and, even when it looked like it was working, it wasn't accurate. A stop was wrong in comparison with the pamphlet we received on the bus. All of these issues caused us to waste a good hour and a half of our one day tour. Disappointed in the app and the tour.

Poorly designed app! Firstly, if you purchase tickets through the app, they do not appear on the app as a QR code to be used on the bus. You have to have an email account on your phone to get the QR codes! Secondly, the contact messager on the app is an exercise in frustration. The FAQ needs a complete overhaul.
