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

The best way to get around the top sightseeing point of the city. For 10 pounds for 24 hours it takes you to beachy head, Birling gap, The Tiger Inn and all the way back to the city! Very friendly and helpful staff! Not the best idea to sit on the top though on a windy day haha

Decided to go on this as wasn't sure how far apart the visiting areas were and it was the best thing we did. We had fantastic views from the top of this bus better than if we had drove ourselves. We stopped halfway at Beachy Head where we also had the chance to go in the pub/restaurant and have some... More

Great hop on hop off bus tour from Eastbourne pier through to beachy head and Burlington gap round trip. Cost £10 pp For two day ticket, most double decker open top buses so relive your childhood, there is audio commentary on the sights along the route. Also easier than finding and paying parking charges at points of interest

The 'Hop On Hop Off Tours' are a 'must do' in any town. This was no different and provides a perfect chance to see the town and attractions at a fair price. The ticket lasts two days so is great to backtrack if you need to. I would recommend this tour,
