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

Thanks for letting us know your thoughts on your trip with us around Norwich with your 4 year old and we’re sorry to hear it did not fully meet your expectations.

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

Husband and I have recently moved to Norfolk and thought it was time to start exploring Norwich and surrounding areas. We'd done The Castle on a rainy day, so, as the weather was nice, it was time to take the sight-seeing bus trip. I expected the usual stuff - poor commentary, bad sound system, tape out of sync with the... More
