Took the sightseeing tour from Tombland getting off at castle intending to do the rest of the tour later, unfortunately we did not know that the last tour was 3pm. This seems a bit early to finish and we therefore paid £24 for a small part of trip. Also we could not hear most of the commentary because of the noise of the engine, no headphones offered.

A really interesting tour of the city with interesting facts to match the sites. We couldn't do the whole tour as a crane was blocking part of the route (that the company had no control over) but still really enjoyed it. The view from upstairs was great but it could be difficult to hear the commentary so choose your seats carefully if you can.

Interesting tour. I would say it was quite expensive for the amount of time on the bus doing a round trip. But the ticket is valid for 24hrs. £12.00 for adults.

Did the tour on Sunday and the bus driver said several times we could use the ticket for 24 hours. Quite annoyed I paid £14 for less than 24hrs since they don't run on Mondays. I feel it should be reminded to the staff not to do false information as I was planning to use the service the next day.

After hearing about the hidden streets of Norwich my eyes lit up with delight. My instant reaction was I knew it.....had to be hidden streets under this fine city.

Anyway decided to travel down with my bestie who's a very keen historian like I who loves things like this coming to light after many hundreds of years being forgotten & not known about.

We proceeded to turn up to the venue to come across a very nice gentlemen named Max, beautifully passionate & knowledge exceptional ( Don't think he was local though as he had no r's when he said castle)

We then went downstairs to find the hidden street then after that continued to walk though the building then out the back door.

All in all, was quite disappointed with the tour itself, nevertheless the tour guide was great but I can't take away the fact that we both felt the hidden street wasn't much of a hidden street.

We paid £28 for two tickets. The tour wasn't running on the only day we were there, through no fault of their own, it was due to rain.

However, there is zero customer service. I have phoned several times for a refund as through no fault of my own we cannot use the tickets. I just keep getting cut off.

Very disappointed, as the confirmation said the tour was available on the day we were there, it wasn't, and it seems I just have to lose the £28.

I have emailed yourselves yesterday as the tour did not happen. The bus did not operate that afternoon. There was nothing on your site to say the tour was not operating and I have paid for four adults. I rang the sightseeing number and was told to contact yourselves for a refund. I still wait your reply and my refund.

Me and Twin visited Norwich as part of our Anglian adventure. The bus operates every 60 minutes and has a very good quality recorded commentary. The bus takes you around the beautiful city centre and then to finish off it is complimented by a stunning trip up to the Brittannia Cafe which offers some breath taking views of the city skyline. Tour was great value for money and the drivers are pleasant and friendly.

Visited Norwich and we love the city tours no matter where we are because you learn so much about the city and see it from a different level. We thought that the tour which lasted 45 minutes was great, we learnt so much about Norwich and saw things we would not ordinarily see, so thank you. We hopped on and off to do shopping and really enjoyed it. The driver was lovely and very helpful when we asked about the best stop to stop off for the shops. We were all on the top deck of the bus to enjoy the best view. Would highly recommend especially the fact you can get on and off at different points , great idea and I feel the price is good for what it is and the use you get from it.
