Amanda and I only ended up actually completing this goal during the last full day we had in London. We had a bit of trouble actually getting on the bus but we quickly made friends with the bus driver. We sat in the top half of the bus for our ride (obviously) and tried not to freak out too much being so tall in a bus. The view from up there is surprisingly lovely and there are way more windows than I ever thought there would be. Overall the best public transit experience I have ever had.

When I was a teenager I really wanted to live in London (I still kind of want to do that, and I've lived there twice so far).

When I turned 15, I didn't really want anything for my birthday, but my parents took me and my siblings to London.

As I live in the UK, more double decker buses are becoming more and more popular with Arriva introducing double decker buses for many routes as this means more people are able to use the buses when they're getting full to prevent more buses having to be added to the routes which would cause more pollution. I'm aware that there are more double decker buses in London although even though I live in the UK,  I've never actually been to London so the only time I've really been on a double decker bus in Chester which is an open top bus for sightseeing which I did when I was younger with my Grandma and the new Arriva double decker buses in my hometown.

Riding on a double-decker tour bus is just so, touristy!!!   However, I got some of the best photos of Paris when I was on my recent trip there.  The tour was designed as a hop on and off, so when you got to a point of interest you could get off and explore.  It is one way to see all of the city in a day or two, then decide where you want to spend more time.

While traveling to England for business, I had the opportunity to spend a day in London, so we took a double decker bus tour. It was incredible.

I loved it! It was SOOOO much fun! The bus stopped at all the sights we wanted to see and comes back around to pick you up! And the bus driver was very well educated about the sights on his course and even a couple that weren't, and was very funny, as well!

Great experience riding so high. The tube was closed in some areas so we had to ride the double deckers, many time.

My university bought a bunch of used double-decker buses from London and used them to set up the local bus system. They're a fond memory from my college days.

 It quite fascinating the first time you ride it, then it becomes normal. The view it's always great, though.

Sure, it wasn't England's double decker bus but was it fun? Heck yes! I didn't even know Las Vegas had double decker buses!

However I must say, they certainly aren't very pretty. The ugly brown is tear-streaking. And inside is very crowded. What's odd enough, is that no one sits upstairs??? Only tourist? Strange! 

Overall, the experience was not great seeing that the driver was continously swerving and braking near the middle of the street. I pray Britians Double Decker's are worth the ride!

 This is a regular occurrence in in England. But have been on a old double decker bus for a friends wedding.
