2015 London Tour bus prices (Big Bus Tour, The Original Tour, City Tour London & Golden Tours)

This is a follow up to my previous article which was titled ‘2015 prices for tour buses in London.
I decided to write another article on this subject because in the last article I left a tour bus out, which was the ‘City Tour London.’

I have updated the table below, which now includes the City Tour London prices and compares them with their competing tour companies in London. The ones I've included are the daytime tour bus services.

So then, London City Tour is operated by London City Tour Ltd., a subsidiary of the Julià Group. On their Company page it says “The Julià Group is a family business operating in the tourism and transport sectors. It is currently the third-largest tourist bus operator in the world. The Julià Group started operating City Tours over 15 years ago.” I may have helped the company with their publicity because when I did a web search (via Google) for their company name ‘London City Tour’, the first three results that appeared were 'The Original Tour', 'City Sightseeing London' and 'Big Bus tours'. This made it harder to find their website so I searched further and thankfully I managed to find the URL which is

It’s interesting that another Tour bus company has appeared in Central London and the day passes for all of the tour bus services look competitive, but pricey. Personally, I would have used the London Transport Bus services as I have a greater interest in just going from A to B.
