Overview

We run the City's bright red open top buses which offer a quality sightseeing service of Bristol. All our commentary is provided by real guides (not a headphone in sight!) who are local and have a passion for their city. Their commentary is a mix of information, entertainment and humour. The attractions and main places of interest in Bristol cover a good-sized geographical area, and our buses offer an easy, convenient and affordable way to get about.The Hop On, Hop off ticket is a major advantage for those who wish to get off and explore the city.

We thought the tour shows off the best highlights of Bristol. Our Tour guide Andy Murphy was extremely knowledgeable and we particularly liked the piece on the 'Old Dockers cottages' as my family history relates to this!. Thank you and keep up the good work!
