This hop on hop off service is fantastic fun and good value. There is always so much more than you imagine when you go on these sort of tours and the guide was very knowledgeable and good fun too. The other advantage is that you get right up to the main sights without the paid of trying to park which... More

Myself and partner decided to do this tour on Sunday. We went for the first tour of the day, which started at 10.30. The bus was there 15 minutes beforehand, so we decided to join early so we could sit down after climbing up Steep Hill. A few minutes later the guide, Ken, joined us at the top. He was... More

Thank you Leslie for a fascinating and humorous tour of Lincoln and to the driver Martin for holding the bus for us on a busy day. Leslie's knowledge of the city and general history was astounding and kept us all entertained in the heavy traffic. A thoroughly enjoyable snapshot of the city and excellent value for money.

We had time to kill in Lincoln and hopped on at the cathedral. We spent the next 50 minutes meandering down tiny little roads, seeing things we had never seen and learning heaps. Although you can hop on and off we stayed for the full circuit. Time well spent.

Used this tour to see the main points of the city . Excellent clean and polite staff. The only thing was the Finnish times 3.30 being the last bus from the castle/cathedral in the height of August makes it a bit tight to get it all in as we only had the one day . May be an hour or... More

We went on the bus tour and Lesley our tour guide was very interesting with local knowledge and kept out children entertained with some funny stories. Well worth going. We visited the castle grounds and saw the poppies from London makes you think of all those brave soldiers. Lincoln cathedral also well worth a visit. Would certainly recommend a day... More

Our tour guide was Lesley, she was... More

I took my young daughter along with my young Godchildren to the open top bus tour. It was fun and informative. Very reasonably priced with a ticket valid for two days and under 16's free! The children loved the open top experience and I enjoyed the facts. Well worth it.
