No existe mejor forma de ver York que en un autobús de dos pisos. Suba y baje cuando le apetezca en cualquiera de las 20 paradas por toda la capital de Yorkshire, incluyendo maravillosos lugares de interés como la Torre Clifford, Exhibition Square, York Minster, Jorvik Viking Centre y muchos más. Mientras viaja a través de York en el autobús, los pasajeros podrán disfrutar de vistas panorámicas de la ciudad, así como una guía informativa grabada disponible en varios idiomas.
I didn't realize how small York was when I booked hop-on hop-off tickets. We were able to easily walk around the city and see all of the sites we were interested in on our own. We rode the bus for about 10 minutes total, mostly because we had paid for it not because we needed to take a bus. We did learn a few things about York's history, but I wouldn't book hop-on hop-off tickets in York again.
This was a great way to get my bearings around York, its a beautiful city and looks big but its actually walkable. The bus was a good way of seeing the walls and there were lots of stops around the city.
The bus trip is good value and a good way to get an overview. There are audiotapes in different languages for commentary. Our first trip was spoiled by a live guide who got on and stood at the front of the bus up top right in front of us blocking our view, plugged his microphone in and began live commentary. His accent made his English hard to follow, he big-noted himself and mocked our Australian nationality which we found offensive. We stayed on to see the sights but later in the day we repeated the circuit without a live guide. It was much better.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We hopped on and off 3 times, and all the drivers were pleasant and helpful. The recording was very informative, although it would be helpful if there were short pauses to allow for thinking!
We were only in York for a day, and felt seeing the city on this hop-on, hop-off bus was the most efficient way to see the highlights. The live guide, and also the recorded tour, were very interesting. This was clearly very popular, and it was sometimes difficult to squeeze back on the bus if we had gotten off at big tourist site.
