Of course, with all the choices available, it can become difficult to pick one, or even a few of the options. This is where we come in.

London plays host to the Olympics for a record third time (the first time in 1908, and the second in 1948) this 2012, and East London has been revitalized by the development of the Olympic Park. There are so many iconic landmarks to see, all packed into 2.5 square kilometers of reclaimed land turned into one of the biggest urban parks in Europe.
There are a few great ways to visit the Olympic Park. You can take one of several big bus tours that drive you around the Park, accompanied by an expert guide. The bus doesn't make any stops for you to hop off during the drive around the site, but it does move quite slowly, and brings you pretty close to the different Olympic venues, giving you many opportunities to view the sites and take photographs.
Other options include talking a walking tour that of the Olympic Park, or simply cycling, jogging, or simply walking along the paths surrounding the Park. They don't get you close to the venues, but they do allow you to move at your own pace.

Hop On Hop Off London Bus Tours can take you around the major attractions of the city in a matter of a few hours. A London open top takes you to the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, and several other attractions, while an expert guide entertains and educates you with a fun history lesson on the different sites.
Of course, there's a reason it's called a hop on hop off tour – you can get off the bus at the stops you want to explore, and get right back on another bus when you want to rejoin the tour. Don't worry about waiting either – with the buses following set routes around the city, you don't have to wait long for the next bus.
Take a walk
A big bus tour is a great way to see the city, but it's not the only way to see the sites. There are many different guided walking tours that can help you explore London. Some of them, like tours of Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, and other historical sites, are quite mainstream. Others, on the other hand, are quite off-beat. Some explore London's fashion, arts, architecture, and food scenes, while others seek out different sites for street art. Still others pit you against double tour guides, one of which shares facts while the other fibs. Many others let you see different facets of London.
