We always go on a city tour when we first arrive in any city and usually find it good value for money and also gives us ideas of where we would like to spend more time. It was difficult to actually find where the tour went from but managed it eventually. Overall we found the tour quite boring. Recorded voice... More

We only had the day in Norwich so wanted to do the bus trip to get a snapshot of what was on offer, get our bearings and decide where to go from there. We had a great trip and loved seeing the sites from the top deck. The best part - the driver! He was so friendly. He had a... More

We all loved it on the top deck. The driver was very helpful and polite when helping us with getting up and down the stairs and the tour was excellent.

I always take a city tour to get my bearings....but because Norwich is a small centre it does not compete with say York as a city tour. Having said that don't forget the ticket is valid 24 hours so you can use the next day.

A lovely bus driver welcomed us and when we explained we were from Norwich he told us how we could get the most from our ticket (valid 24 hours). We sat on top deck, it was difficult to hear the recorded guide messages which was disappointing but as a Norwich citizen was nice to see up above the streets and... More

I had a free child ticket and my son (aged 4) loves buses so I thought this might be fun for him. I've never been on an open top bus before, so I was surprised as I assumed you had an actual guide onboard so that was a little disappointing. It's just played through the speakers which were difficult to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour around Norwich and learnt a great deal about its history. The girls remembered many facts about their experience. Thank you.

We often like to take a city sightseeing bus tour when visiting somewhere new as we find it a good way to find out about the history of a place as well as 'get our bearings' and find out where are the attractions and restaurants etc that we may like to visit during our stay. We were disappointed and frustrated... More

Having lived in Norwich for the past 17 years or so, we feel almost "local." There was not much we didn't know about the city. How wrong can one be? With expected guests arriving for a few days, one who had not been to this "Fine City" before, we came up with the idea of a quick tour on the... More
