“Good way to see City”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

We enjoyed our tour and some of the commentary, but could have done without the Daily Mail type slurs on the public sector, which seem de riguer these days. Mostly it was very informative and good fun. It was a lovely day so we didn't get wet, though umbrellas were provided in the event of rain. Yes we get cold, but warmed up later.

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

We did the tour on a Tuesday morning. The driver and guide are both knowledgeable about Chester and have a good sense of humor. The tour lasts about an hour and gives you information while outlining the city and what it has to offer. We completely enjoyed this tour. Price was fair. As the guide says - be prepared for folks to be taking pictures of the bus (and you while on the bus).

“A must-do whilst in Chester!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Saw this little bus going round Chester on the first day of our stay and couldn't wait to go on it! The tour itself was interesting and informative, with the little things you would look twice at normally pointed out to be key points of history. The bus ride was lovely, and not even the cold detracted from how pleasant it was. You get a decent time on the trip too. Would recommend everyone to go on this whilst in Chester.

“Enjoyable 40 mins”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

Good trip for the family. Sense of humour from the guide. £15 for a family of 4 seemed worth it. Got a bit chilly but what would you expect!

“If you only do one thing in Chester it has to be this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

Having been on tourist buses before we know they are an excellent way to learn about the city, however we have never been on a tour that has been so much fun. None of the pre recorded commentary usually to be played on these type of buses, instead a knowledgable guide who obviously cared about his city and wanted to share this information with his customers.
The 1914 style open top bus is an attraction in itself. You will find it parked outside the Tourist Office. The tour takes about an hour and well worth the money. The tickets doubled as book marks which impressed my husband.
