Tour started 20 mins late. Commentary inaudible upstairs. Nice to see the sights of Norwich from the open top, however. Suggest people with pre-booked tickets should be allowed to board first.

A good way to have an overview of Norwich and brief history

The commentary was good although a lot of history couldn't be adequately covered as it's a bus journey so would recommend also having a walking tour for a better coverage. Loved the view from Mousehold. Commentary going up the hill to the look out spot was drowned out by the bus engine noise as it travelled up hill but otherwise a lovely day. Only one bus, so each stop gives one hour between pick ups.

Fantastic experience for adults and children

What a great experience. I mainly booked the open top bus for a child I care for who is a massive bus enthusiast. He absolutely loved it. I also had a great time. It is only from high up that you can appreciate the amazing architecture we have in Norwich. Informative too and the driver was happy and helpful.. We will definitely be booking again. Thank you 😊

We thought is actually brilliant!,...I have a three-year-old and a seven-year-old they were highly entertained just looking out the window at every moving picture!,..... when I was listening to all the interesting facts ( Tour guide had a great sense of humour ) on Norwich, I thought actually how poor of me that I didn’t know half of the facts I was being told?!?,....and I live in Norwich!,..... Tickets seem initially a little bit pricey , bit equally you can do the whole tour as many times as you want , however you can use it to your advantage which is very good for sightseers to use it almost as a bus taxi. Fantastic to jump on, have a really good look about suss Norwich out and then figure out where you wanna sight see, jump off jump on a hour later!,... job done !,... I love our city and I would definitely recommend this to anybody near and far and I will be going on again soon as My son is absolutely loves buses!,.... The Only disappointing thing was is that we didn’t get to go on the open top one, The driver explained that he’d had problems with it, so it’s understandable, But equally when we next go on it I’d really hoped to go on the open top one just adds to the summer fun! Plus my sons dreams would be answered a convertible bus!,.....

The driver was friendly and cooperative. Even though the bus was running late due to roadworks he was still cheerful. A thoroughly enjoyable trip
