Olympics fans pleased with London Underground

The Underground was put to the test like never before during the 2012 Summer Games, and it's getting rave reviews from fans who depended on it.

There were a lot of fears about how the Underground was going to handle all of the Olympic tourists.

It was really going to be stressed by the numbers of people who would be riding it during the Summer Games.

The reality is that things have actually gone surprisingly well. It's tight at times, and there are usually a lot of people on board, but the trains have handled the extra people pretty well.

There have been a couple trains that have broken down, but overall the Tube has worked very reliably as Olympic transportation.

For American tourists not used to doing the public transportation thing, it has actually been a lot of fun.

"Actually, the way I see it, it's a free tour of the city of parts you're not going to see. It went smoothly, and all of the volunteers, they direct you. It's great," said American tourist Mike Chisari.

The Underground prepared for the Games by adding extra trains. It also ran constant announcements about the status of the trains.
