Had a very nice half hour as a passenger on this very old bus whilst it toured the city. Both the driver and our host Barbara were very pleasant and made the whole tour enjoyable. Lots of interesting information was passed on as we visited all the main sites of Chester. £7 was a little expensive but as we learnt... More

The bus trip lasts about 30 minutes and takes you around the city giving you the history of the various buildings and places,also stopping at a cemetery where the tour guide gives you some history of famous people that were buried there, then carries on the tour back to the town hall. A good trip if you want to see... More

We had a beautiful day in Chester; for late March the sun was shining and skies were blue! The heritage bus looked great sitting in the market square - so we decided to get on board. Am glad we did! The beautifully dressed guide took us on a very informative tour round and round Chester and filled us full of... More

If Chester is new to you, get on the 1910 antique double decker. If fine sit upstairs. If like me you can sit at the front next to the charming Edwardian costumed guide Barbara, you are in for a treat. Great way to see and learn about the ancient city before taking to the pavements and walk around properly.

Went on this quaint and unusual bus trip around Chester. Lovely guide and driver Barbara and Dave made the trip both interesting and informative. Learned a lot. Both were funny and friendly characters and made the trip fun even on a rainy day. Thank you both

Really loved this tour. The bus was decorated for Xmas and accompanied by lady in costume who narrated our tour. She was easy to hear and most informative and amusing.Good way to see the main sights when arriving in Chester and then choosing which to explore in more depth later.

Very cold but we couldn't go home without a trip on the tour bus Our guide Barbra was fantastic and inspiring us with history and old tales about the city she was so funny she made the trip enjoyable even though we were frozen to the bone. Would recommend you take this trip well worth the money and time.

Luckily the weather was pretty good for the time of the year so we were able to sit upstairs on the bus. Our guide/commentator gave us a very good commentary as we were driven around the sights of the city. Not only was heable to fill our heads with a vast amount of information about the various sites around the... More
