Bought combined bus and boat ticket and it was value for money. You could get off the bus anytime and re-join after sightseeing. The bus tour guides were excellent, giving many details about the history and the buildings. On our last part of the trip...More

A good way to see parts of Chester you don't get to see on a shopping trip. Well informed guide and lots of information about the history of Chester. The route takes in places you may not have thought of visiting
