Not the best as bus has a plastic roof that is so scratched you can barely see through it and as it was winter very cold if you sat outside the roof on top, saw more of the lights walking around afterwards.

This was good however it was absolutely freezing on top of the double decker bus, maybe if a blanket or something was offered. The lights were good although I thought it was going to be slightly different and see more lights but still a nice night.

I think the guide spent more time talking about himself than he did the Christmas lights. The tour was very focused around a couple of streets and you were lucky to see any of the windows because of buses and trucks parked on the road. I would have liked to see more displays.

Too cold and streets to busy. Once you're on you can't get off so was not to enjoyable

Time of year (December) on an open top bus made this trip less enoyable than it could of been but with that said, its pretty obvious it'll be cold so more an error on my part than the trip itself. Downside of the trip is that you are generally stuck in so much traffic and I personally felt that we saw more walking around the city than on the tour itself.

Other than changing the name, this was basically just the city tour and we expected to see more displays. We enjoyed our guide and am sure had it not been raining (thanks for the ponchos, by the way), it would have been more enjoyable. We were on a tour and already had most of the information, but the store fronts were new to us at least.

not so good in winter.. bus windows get steamed and you cannot see that much of the city.

Bitterly disappointing. There was no organisation, people jumped the queue. We waited an hour and a quarter just to board. One of the staff was very abusive when asked how much longer we would wait because I was freezing. It was a double-decker bus but perspex so scratched, couldn't see out. Rubbish

The trip we took on the 27th Dec at 6pm was a disaster.OK it was raining but the bus that arrived was completey open top and no cover, so everyone was downstairs. The host had bad English and didnt know his history.!! The tour was advertised as 2 hours, but it was over in 1hr 20 mins. No body was intrested when we made a comment !!!! Not value for money you can easliy do this on foot and see more
