We got the 48 hour bus and boat ticket which was worth it. We got the 10am bus from Bournemouth with driver George who was very informative about which rich and famous people lived in which houses, the recorded information was also very informative. However on the way back with a different driver the bus had a fault with the doors, the driver didn’t let people stood waiting or those still on the bus know what’s was happening. When the bus did get going he drove quite fast and didn’t speak at all. The atmosphere was lightened by the awful ‘Bournemouth by the sea’ song playing 2 or three times in a row causing laughter among the passengers.

Our first driver 10.00am on 16th June was excellent. He chipped in extra details along the way, particularly when we got to the expensive Sandbanks houses. We got off the bus at stop 10 to have a wander and then caught the next bus at stop 8, so going around the nice houses again. The 2nd driver just drove around fairly fast which made the bus noisy and difficult to hear the recorded commentary, we were glad that we had seen it on the first run. We got off again at Poole quay and spent a couple of hours looking around and having lunch. We returned with our first driver from Poole at about 3pm and stayed on the bus until alighting back in Bournemouth

I travelled on the bus on Sunday for a day with the kids. As a local I found this very informative Dave the driver was very good. And rob who sold me the tickets was very passionate about his job. The whole experience was easy by the knowledge of your staff . Hope they get credit for this 🙂

If you want a round trip fine but be careful. My first driver drove so fast I felt unwell at the end. If you sit upstairs on the open deck you could hardly hear the commentary. I went on the lower deck and could hear some interesting facts. My biggest disappointment we sailed past the stop for Compton Acres without allowing guests to explore this attraction. Other hop on off trips do give you the opportunity to press the button to stop the bus. I sincerely hope these comments are constructive and helpful for both guests and management.
