Always seemed to keep to the advertised stopping times and the commentary was both interesting and at a good volume. Great experience. Ticket is valid for 24hrs which is good. Only downside was that... More

We didn't book an advance ticket although the website page was still offering this option for November. We caught the Park and Ride into the city which is a good service and then did a dash in the...

We've taken numerous hop-on, hop-off tours in the UK and Europe and this one in Norwich is a favourite because it included a wonderful, welcoming driver, a comprehensive tour of the city with enjoyable, informative commentary.
