    'Bonjour à tous' sounds perfectly fine to me.

    Bonjour tout le monde est une phase courante. C'est plutôt du langage familier.

    So "Bonjour a tous" is the better of the two phrases to say?

    And the "s" is pronounced in this instance, right?

    that depend how well you know the peoples you are talking to: familly, friends, colleague, etc.

    bonjour à tous is more formal and I would use it for example in a mail.
    bonjour tout le monde is more colloquial and spoken language. if you know very well the peoples you are talking to you may even say salut tout le monde (very colloquial)

    yes, the "s" is pronounced.
