Wonderful experience because of the guides on the bus. I took the first bus out with a gentleman ( i didn't get his name) and he shared very interesting information about York. The second time i took the bus, it was with Flora and she's very delightful and funny. Great way to get a whole view of York first and choose what I want to spend time on visiting!

it's a been of a 'does exactly what is says on the tin' kind of experience, an open top bus, that shows you the best parts of the city of York! it moves around the outside walls, and the guide was interesting, but could have been a bit louder to hear it over the traffic.

An excellent way to explore the city. Very friendly & helpful drivers and knowledgeable tour guides whose narrative was informative & entertaining and slightly different facts on each bus which was great so worth hopping on a few different ones during the day.
