There is a new player in the London open top tour market, megasightseeing.com. Services began on 23 April this year, operated by Stagecoach London from its Bow depot.

Four months into the operation, I tried out the tour for myself to see how it was running. Megasightseeing.com is unusual in the London open-top market in that it is not the traditional hop-on hop-off type of tour. It offers a two-hour non-stop tour of the city, taking in 50 tourist attractions with three joining points: the Tower of London, Park Lane and The London Eye.
