As always in a new place we use the hop on hop off buses. However, this one didn't turn up. We waited in St Swithin's Square stop 1 for the 10.30 bus and it didn't come. We were there for about 45 minutes. We paid £5.50 for a day's parking too. We were booked into the Magna Carta Vault at 11. 40 so we had to drive up and find parking at the castle which cost us another £5. We were very disappointed. I'm afraid I can recommend this. Several phone calls throughout the day illicited no response whatsoever. I know we're living in difficult times but if it wasn't available they should have made it clear before they took our money.

Fun concept but the whole 4 hour ride was really just a collection of emailed stories that really were not fascinating or extraordinary. Actually the stories were boring. However. The owners are extremely nice, funny and just great people.

Yet another tourist attraction that benefits from having a real person as a tour guide rather than a prerecorded track. These guides are passionate about what they do and are a mine of information. Our guide took questions and never stopped taking all the way around. This 50 minute round tour by bus gives you all the information you need to know to go and explore Lincoln. Don't miss it

A very enjoyable hour, that showed us areas we'd missed in our two days in lincoln, and made us decide to visit again. Explained various landmarks, roman history, medieval etc. A knowledgeable, warm, witty guide, a lovely lady, ex teacher, whose name escapes me (she said she can do Irish dancing at parties... Hope this helps her recognise herself!) Buy ticket when you arrive as it lasts for two days. Do the whole trip first, then use it as hop on and off.

This is an excellent way to view the city, we had an great guide who really knew his stuff and made it funny as well. We went all the way around in about an hour and went round again and got off and on where we wanted to explore.
