Owner description: We run the City's bright red open top buses which offer a quality sightseeing service of Bristol. All our commentary is provided by real guides (not a headphone in sight!) who are local and have a passion for their city. Their commentary is a mix of information, entertainment and humour. The attractions and main places of interest in Bristol cover a good-sized geographical area, and our buses offer an easy, convenient and affordable way to get about.The Hop On, Hop off ticket is a major advantage for those who wish to get off and explore the city.

Tour lasted 75 minutes and cost £10, which was excellent value for money. Guide was very knowledgable of the city and all it's interesting history and gave everyone some great tips on different places of interest. Tour was done at a good pace and would defo recommend.

We arrived in Bristol on the Saturday and decided to do this trip on the Sunday morning,starting at stop 1 and intending to get off at stop15. To do some shopping.the whole trip was very informative by the guide.i was amazed when we got to the downs and the views of the Suspension bridge, stunning and having a sunny day made the trip (nov 18th) It has made me want to visit when they have the Balloon festival in August 2013.

although living in the city, we decided to task this tour to learn more about the city. We learned stuff we didn't even know and the guides are so knowledgeable yet still entertaining. I would honestly recommend to anyone, even if you live in the city, and fancy something to do on a nice day.the various stopping points are very handy too, especially if you don't live in through city.well worth the cost, and definitely not something to be missed! U will have a great time!

Brilliant guides with humour. Great way to see Bristol and Clifton.
Nothing to dislike here. Great way to explore Clifton where you hop off to see the bridge or have a meal . Georgian buildings was a real pleasure to look at.

We went on the sightseeing bus last weekend and had a great time, even though the bus was late due to an accident on the downs. Our guide was very knowledgable and had a good sense of humour. The only thing that I can suggest is that they somehow make the commentary louder as it was a little hard to hear at the back of the top floor. Great for young children and the info pack that they have for them is a nice touch. A good couple of hours and I definitely came away having learnt more about the city that I have lived in for over 29 years which was nice.

Thank you for your lovely comments!
We are looking into the microphone volume at the back of the top deck and hope to improve the quality of the audio.
Kind regards,
Nicola
