Went on this quaint and unusual bus trip around Chester. Lovely guide and driver Barbara and Dave made the trip both interesting and informative. Learned a lot. Both were funny and friendly characters and made the trip fun even on a rainy day. Thank you both

Really loved this tour. The bus was decorated for Xmas and accompanied by lady in costume who narrated our tour. She was easy to hear and most informative and amusing.Good way to see the main sights when arriving in Chester and then choosing which to explore in more depth later.

Very cold but we couldn't go home without a trip on the tour bus Our guide Barbra was fantastic and inspiring us with history and old tales about the city she was so funny she made the trip enjoyable even though we were frozen to the bone. Would recommend you take this trip well worth the money and time.

Luckily the weather was pretty good for the time of the year so we were able to sit upstairs on the bus. Our guide/commentator gave us a very good commentary as we were driven around the sights of the city. Not only was heable to fill our heads with a vast amount of information about the various sites around the... More

A definite "must do" when visiting Chester. Make sure you sit upstairs, even if it rains! Brollies are provided!

It is basically the vintage bus which attracts you to it. Go around it. Admire it from a distance. Lovingly caress its gleaming exterior. Revel in its age. Salute its admirable existence. Celebrate its uniqueness. Finally, make your way up the narrow stairs to grab a seat before others can. Unluckily when we decided to board it, only 1 seat... More

We saw this old bus and had to get on it for the tour. £7/each which isn't bad for 1/2 hr. The lady who was giving us the information was very funny and communicated with the driver by banging on the floor. Learnt quite a bit about Chester. Sun was shining sat on top deck. Loved it.
