Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

I really enjoyed this hop-on hop-off tour. It helped me get the layout of the city before I went and explored on my own.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2013

We enjoyed the bus in Cambridge. The stops were easy to find and the audio was clear. It was a very chilly day so the tour made it easier to deal with the weather.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2012

A woinderful overview of Cambridge. Make the loop first and decide which things you would like to "Hop Off" and see the second time around. Lots of informative commentary. Definately priced right.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2010

A great way to see the city in a limited amount of time. This hop-on hop-off was better than most as it used a recorded commentary that was easy to understand and complete. An excellent value.

Very interesting.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2014

The tour information was excellent and the trip around Cambridge was fun and enjoyable. Would definitely recommend. Only downside was that our tickets stated that the buses stop running around 4.30pm, which was really early for the hop on hop off experience as we were doing a day trip. So do check!

4 star rating: Recommended May 2012

Tour was great, very informative. There was a problem with one of the buses - one side of the bus could not be used as the plugs for the commentery were not working.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2010

Construction near the train station made finding the bus stop difficult. Trip itself was VERY informative. The website I signed up from described numerous items related to Isaac Newton that would be seen on the tour. Problem was that there was not ONE mention of Newton during the entire tour. Honestly, that was my only reason for visiting Cambridge. As a general tour though, it was very good.
