Bath by bus
Mervyn_B, Jun 2022
Glad we did both tours and it was really interesting Drivers and your guide were really helpful Learnt a lot about Bath
Excellent Service
Anthony_C, Jun 2022
If I had to pick my favourite part of the tour it would be the Royal Crescent. However the whole tour was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful this started with my phone call to the office for information on how to collect our tickets. In today’s world it is not very often you can the the service was excellent.
Great Tours!
David_A, Jun 2022
We did both routes that were included with our tickets. We really enjoyed both tours. The city tour was amazing and the audio guide gives so much information on the city and the people who lived there. The second route was out of the city center. It gave some beautiful views of Bath and the surrounding area. The audio guide also gave a lot of interesting facts. The drivers and other employees were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
Fun, informative and friendly
Kate_B, Jun 2022
Our family loved hopping on and off the bus around Bath City. We even did the whole city tour twice as my daughter loved the audio tour
Worth the money
Jane_H, May 2022
The trip was really informative and was very good. Would highly recommend. Just a shame the bus couldn't drive on the Royal Crescent, but otherwise a lovely time and well worth the money.
Great experience
barstowvicki, May 2022
Create experience to get an over view of the city and all its beauty. Easy to get off and see something and then get back on.
Not really necessary - a walking tour would suffice
Beth_L, May 2022
The bus sped by too many of the places or the audio did not go with what we were looking at so the synchronization was off. The city tour took us to the Crescent Hotel but we could hardly see it in between the trees....
Fantastic time on the hop on bus
Gina_O, May 2022
We had a lovely time saw plenty of sites and the sky line tour bus was really interesting as well we would certainly recommend this tour bus
It’s the way to go around Bath!
Ronald_S, May 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed the Hop on-Hop off Tour, just enough background information, and a terrific way to get an overview of the city. All staff were friendly and very helpful. We could not have done this on our own!
Great tour with very good...
Michael_O, May 2022
Great tour with very good hosts and amazing driving around those little streets of Bath. Highly recommended
A must see experience in Bath
Amar_P, Apr 2022
On 27 th April, me and my wife reached Bath for one day tour. We had booked bath hop on hop off . Surprisingly both skyline tour and city tour were included. City tour is shorter one and m9st informative to highlight all the historical places whereas skyline tour moves around outskirt of city, which is full of grenery. I must recommend to take both the trips available in single ticket which can be completedwithin 3 hours. Coach driver cum guide was also very helping to us.
These ease of jumping on...
Jennifer_D, Apr 2022
These ease of jumping on and off and being able to use the ticket for two days was amazing! Giving two loops to explore was also very appreciated to see the different sides of Bath.
Claire_K, Apr 2022
100% recommend, You see so much more than you would walking around & learn more about the history! Bath is a lovely place to visit!
Best way to visit new places.
RE_M, Feb 2022
I always book through Viator whenever visiting somewhere new,as they have the best hop on and hop off bus service. We had a slight problem with our tickets. I telephoned and immediately someone came out from the office and sorted everything for us - nothing was too much trouble. Excellent service

Niall_F, Nov 2021
The staff most helpful we stayed at the McDonald Spar hotel. Sky line bus stopped by the entrance. Very sensible to use bus parking in Bath not practical. Enjoyed our stay.
Answer your bloody phone
Annemarie_S, Nov 2021
No buses - Bath in gridlock - waited over an hour. Not a bus in sight. Couldn't contact you. You didn't answer phone or text.
Highly disappointed, staff refused to refund me although I couldn’t use the ticket
Antoniya_D, Nov 2021
Standstill traffic, not very helpful staff/driver , after 1 hour and 40 minutes saw 1/5th of one trip
