Your ticket gives you a tour on the open-topped bus and can also be used on the local buses so you can hop on and off as you please. The tour is highly informative, noting places and people of interest. The views on the west of the island are absolutely breath-taking, and the driver was happy to stop for us... More

Therer are concessions for the senior citizen and the ticket can be used for the rest of the day on local buses. Bit bracing on the open top bus (there is a sheltered section upstairs at front. Great views across the island. Takes over an hour and the driver was so informative. Look out for the wee Highland Terrier who... More

A leisurely bus ride around Bute, with recorded commentary which highlighted aspects of Bute from ancient history to the present day. Includes stops for photography from the bus and option of getting off and taking later bus. Very friendly and amenable driver.

Excellent trip on open top bus around the southern part of Bute, starting and finishing in the centre of Rothesay (just opposite the ferry port). Lasts just under 2 hours, giving you a real feel for the highlights of the island and the places to go back to under your own steam.

We went on a lovely tour of the Isle of Bute on the 13 August 2015 on an open Top Tour Bus. We had a lovely driver called Ian. He was very friendly and polite. He gave a great commentary and information about the whole Island. He was very good to other drivers and always pulled in to let other... More

Our driver on the day Ian was excellent with great knowledge. The tour was very informative whilst Ian answered passenger questions and provided further information not on the commenrary. He allowed passengers time to take pictures, whilst being considerate to other road users.

We booked this trip alongside our ferry ticket from Wemyss Bay. Paul the driver and guide was excellent with great local knowledge. I would really recommend this trip to anyone going to Bute. One thing I would say is that for a normal adult ticket the price was the same whether booking with the ferry ticket or direct with the... More

What a great tour and worth every penny. We loved every minute spent with the guide who is one of the best and most considerate drivers we have met. The Isle of Bute is a much bigger place than expected and it was made so special by all the information we were given. There are so many interesting little villages... More
