Nice tour of Chester
, Oct 2020
There was a long wait for a bus, but once we were on it, it was good. The commentary was pre-recorded and very clear, and at one point the driver came and told us a bit more about some of the buildings we were looking at. The only negative was that it was a little pricey for what it was.

We always find the best way to see a city or town is with the hop on, hop off bus and this was no exception. The bus ride did some figure eights, so that you saw some of the buildings from different angles. This is a great way to get your bearings and decide where you want to go back and have a better look, or get off and get back on later. The narration was excellent and informative. Due to the fact that you went through areas twice, the narration described one side going one way and the other side on your return. The drive was very smooth and not rushed at all. The price was reasonable. I would highly recommend this trip.
