“Never again!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

We had the misfortune of trying this hop on - hop off bus this past Saturday. We have used this type of bus all over the world and have always enjoyed it. Unfortunately on this particular day we had a very grumpy driver who drove like a total maniac. We were jerked around corners, thrown forward from the slamming on of brakes, then backwards from quick acceleration. He did not stop at any of the stops, except the first/last stop. We were on the top, along with many others, and finally, after he blew right by several passenger's intended stops, we noticed a button near the steps that we guessed we were to push if we wanted to get off. The only problem was that it was dangerous to try and get up to walk to it due to his jerky driving. We finally got off and just walked. It seemed the safest option. Cannot recommend this bus. Sorry.

“Great tour of Inverness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

Super helpful lady driver and very informative commentary . Lots to see, and you see so much more being high up on the open top bus. Made use of the hop on & off facility to visit the castle and woolen mill. Nice cool breeze on the top deck on a scorching day.
