Last week on visting York we used the open top bus. Excellent way to get your bearings if new to the city. Among other places it goes to Railway Museum, Minster and Dick Turpins grave. Warning; watch out for the GEESE!!!!!!!

This is a great way to see the city, especially if you are time limited. There is a boat tour included which is great value. We use City Sightseeing tours whenever we can as they explain the history of the city and allow you to hop on and off where you need to. A great way to get around.

The bus tour round the city was excellent. We saw far more of York than we could have ever done on foot. We didn't hop off and on but remained on the bus for the whole circuit. It was very informative and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

we visited York last week and as it was raining, typical British weather. we thought a bus trip would be a nice way to see the city. the tour guide promised a wonderful trip full of historical info with lovely scenery. what we got was a dull hour long trip. once you have stopped for ten minutes at each bus stop you get to move on. yes it stops at the railway station, museum, minster and Cliffords tower the rest of the journey is pointless. the fact that it follows the city walls is lost once you have gone through a housing estate and gone past Sainsbury's. the latter part could quite easily be missed. the best part is that you can get on and off as many times as you wish in the twenty four hours your ticket is valid. the stupid thing is it only runs in one direction so if you want to go anywhere that is back down the line on the schedule you have to spend an hour on the bus. twelve pound per adult too expensive. we will not ever use this service again. complete rip off
