“a breeze on the Breezers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

I have used the breezers before and wouldnt miss it for the world. Sit on the top deck if you want a little excitment as you whizz under overhanging trees, watch out for insects though ! A regular service and commentary make this a great experience. The drivers are very helpful, as are the majority of bus drivers on the island. The bus takes you to the Needles Park and other local attractions but you may need to change to other buses if going further afield. We purchased a weeks rover ticket to travel aroung the island all week on any bus for £24

“Don't miss this.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

An open-topped double decker bus ride in the rain. Not much fun ? Try this for size...... Better than any theme park ride. The bus winds it's way up above The Needles lighthouse after a journey through the most spectacular parts of West Wight. And all with the NICEST, most helpful and smilie at staff possible. Than you from the staff and children of Gosden House Special School. Even a forgotten ruck sack was waiting for us at Yarmouth on our return.

“What a rollercoaster of a ride.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We did this open top bus tour whilst visiting the Old Gaffers Festival in Yarmouth. The 1 hour, hop on, hop off tour goes via The Needles Park, up to the Old battery and past various local attractions. The views are spectacular and the ride itself is quite eventful with the wind in your face and ducking tree branches. It all adds to the fun!

“open top with a difference.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

open top bus ride with a difference, catch it in yarmouth and head off to freshwater bay, then off towards the highdown inn, finally heading to alum bay and onto the needles, the views are great, a bit breath taking if its windy up on the needles, and you can get on and off any where on the route, it then heads back to yarmouth via totland bay and colwell, well worth the journey.
