The tour only goes along sea front then up into the South Downs, stopping off at several places, the two most popular being Beachy Head and Birling Gap. In truth, there seem to be few sights of interest in the town, though the commentary did its best. Beachy Head was great.

Enjoyed the tour, fantastic views and good commentary. The tour last about 40 minutes plus the ticket is valid for two days. Would recommend if visiting Eastbourne.

I've been on the open top bus tour about 3 times now and never been fortunate with the weather, it can be very windy! You can get on and off at any stop and your ticket is valid for 2 days. The tour is just of Eastbourne but it takes you up to beachy head and around the surrounding landscape.... More

I can remember my childhood holidays in Eastbourne when the open top buses were fantastic fun for kids. These modern bus tours really bring back the childhood memories. My wife and I love the views and have done this trip many times. We can probably recite the recorded commentary now. The fact that this is a hop on hop off... More

at £10 a throw this Hop on hop off bus represents poor value for money. it only covers the western end of the resort and lasts 45 minutes. it shoud be extended to cover the western part of the resort including the Marina

We thought this tour which was only 45 minute long at £10 a person was poor vale for money yes it did cover two days but thee was not enough to see for both days. It wold be better if they offered the option of a one day ticket for say £6. It was nice to see Beachy Head and... More

Used this for the first time today, tempted only by the £10 ticket basically lasting for 2 days. Was very pleasantly surprised though, and had a really good day out. The buses are old, with steep stairs to top deck, where you will get windswept, but that's part of the fun. Buses were clean and tidy. Good driving. Frendly drivers.... More

I don't drive but really wanted to go up to Beachy head and had seen there was a city trip bus. With the ticket being valid for basically two days this seemed like a good idea and the £10 price tag seemed pretty good too. As it happened I ended up going round four times in total! The half hourly... More
