Plymouth Discovery tours offers you a unique and exciting way of seeing the historical city of Plymouth on board Beryl the bus. Once on board you will be entertained by Liz our live guide trapped in the 1940s and Charlie who has been designed by the wonders of technology to help recreate some of Plymouths historical architecture sadly no longer with us either because of the blitz or the ravages of time.

I agree with Paul-TA8 and Jannerbloke. This is amateurish and poorly thought through. It needs to be more polished and marketed. Greater numbers and a more skillfully produced video and commentary would make for a much more reliable informative and entertaining experience. The bus is...More

The actual tour itself was OK. BUT there are so many things wrong with this operation. 1. Needs somebody on the pavement actually selling the tours - they wont be in business for long at their current rate as our tour and the one prior...More

We took a large group of 10-year olds. Children and adults alike would class themselves as locals and, amazingly, this tour opened our eyes to so many aspects of Plymouth that we didn't know! Beryl the Bus comes with a knowledgable guide and is equipped...More

The tour offers good value and takes in the seaviews of Plymouth Hoe, some history and some of the sights so easily missed, particularly if your stay in Plymouth is only brief. The informative commentary talks about Plymouth's Naval and industrial history as well as...More

A repainted old single decker bus. A questionable running commentary at just under middle brow pitch, trying to make a lot out of a little. There is potential for careful authoritative and fascinating histories of Plymouth linked to a small residue of surviving features and...More
