From Our Suppliers: 6 Simple Reasons to Choose The Original Tour

You might have seen The Original Tour's proud Union Jack buses making their way around London's streets, but did you know that there's more to their tours than fabulous livery and amazing sights? Read on for six simple reasons why The Original Tour is one of the greatest London tour operators around and a great place to use your Leisure Vouchers or Leisure Vouchers Gift Card.


Getting an ordinary bus in London is an everyday affair, swiping your card on a little yellow circle then burying yourself in music, a newspaper or simply your own thoughts. You might take an occasional glance around, either to soak in a series of shops and grey buildings, or to work out how close you are to your next stop, but when was the last time you used a bus to see the sights?

On an open-topped Original Tour bus, sightseeing's the name of the game, and you can take in landmarks and sights with ease by simply taking your seat and looking around - no cramped tube trains required to get from A to B, and you can do it all with Leisure Vouchers rather than an Oyster Card. But there's more to an Original Tour ticket than you might think...

(Thanks to The Original Tour for the list!)
