We spent 2 weeks on a narrowboat cruising the Severn River and then headed to Stratford for a couple days. We had been here 2 years ago, but didn't take the bus tour option. We did this time and it a great way to see the Shakespeare sites that are not right in the city. The buses run all day... More

Thoroughly enjoyable, a really lovely way to see this beautiful city and surrounding areas. The audio commentary was really interesting and we learned a lot. Would recommend this tour. Very good value for money.

We learned a great deal on our tour and enjoyed it that much we did it again the next day as the tickets were valid for 48 hours. The hop on hop off facility is useful for visiting the more distant attractions.

Buy your passes for the Shakespeare Houses at the Information Centre along with your bus tickets. Savings made! Also jeep your ticket after your visit to get 10% discount off future City Sightseeing tours. We did, saving ours from the Oxford trip! The bus stops at most attractions both in the city and the surrounding countryside. Great.

Stratford upon Avon is a small town. Pretty well all of the attractions covered by this tour can be done on foot, the notable exceptions being the Tudor Farm and Ann Hathway''s house. The first stop is literally two minutes up the road(!) but the best thing about being on a double decker is it does give you a different... More

Buy a guidebook and walk unless you want to reach Anne Hathaway's Cottage or Mary Arden's Farm and you have no other way of getting there !! All the main tourist attractions in Stratford are all within walking distance of each other so I'm my opinion an Hop on, Hop off bus is a bit pointless. I also thought that... More

*We had already done some sightseeing and didn’t listen to the commentary, just used it for transport, so this review and rating is only based on that.* The main downside is that it was expensive, and there are is no other bus option to reach the important sites outside the town centre; Anne Hathaway’s cottage (though if you are a...

A great way to bring to life the history of the town & its ´famous son. The tour bus is a hop-on/hop-off service so you could easily spend a whole day visiting the various points or use it to see all round the town in one go. The earphones provide commentary in many languages. I have now done this tour... More
