We were so pleasantly surprised by how much we liked this city. We walked over the tilting bridge and got to see the tilting bridge in action. Amazing. The hop on/hop off bus was a great way to get an overview of what and #39;s out there. The people are so nice!!

Quite comprehensive. Recommended for the first-timer.
Being a Geordie of 66 years obviously I am biased but I have to admit I couldn't think of a much nicer way to spend a glorious July Sunday afternoon
Have done many city tours including San Francisco London Rome and Paris and even though my beloved Toon is not of the same magnitude of those great capitals this tour is very rewarding in as much the information given on the recorded commentary is excellent and viewing everything from the top of a bus puts things into a different perspective and you realise how beautiful the city of Newcastle actually is
Special word of mention to our driver who was a lovely guy and who told us about the Victoria Tunnel from Hancocks Museum to the Ouseburn and the apparently famous Vampire Rabbits on Amen Corner
Ideal way to do a leisurely pub crawl as stops near many en route
Will definitely do again in the not too distant future
This city tour hop on off bus had a good speaker audio system in English so you didn't need the hard plastic ear pieces to hear the tour info. We didn't realize that there are three different hop on off tours in Edinbourgh. We booked the city tour in advance only to find it didn't go to our cruise port. For 4 pounds more each, we were able to add another hop on off bus that connected us. It was raining so with only half of the top of the bus was covered, many people were on the lower level. One bus passed me without stopping. I guess they were full. Otherwise, the tour was typical.
A good tour to get a feel for Newcastle. Details are not well publicised at the website. Tours start half-hourly from Bewick Street near Central Station from 1030, and a circuit take 55 minutes. Last tour is at 1500. There are 17 stops. Tours run 7 days a week. Seniors fares were listed as unavailable at the Viator website, so we paid 8 pounds each online through Viator for our one-day Adult tickets. Had we paid at the bus it would have been only 6 pounds each for Seniors tickets. The driver said there is never a problem with seating availability. Good commentary, but only available in English.
Brilliant way to see the sights. Beware that the last departure in Summer is around 2.45pm.
This is a good option to see the must important attractions.
Takes between 20 to 30 minutes for the bus to pass by.
The only downside is that the bus didn and #39;t have the option for headphones so that makes difficult to hear the explanation.
That and #39;s why I give 4 start
We have used Hop-on Hop-off buses in several European cities as a quick way to get orientated and see sites that you probably would not have bothered with otherwise. There was a stop a short walk from our hotel and easy enough to find. A bus arrived within a minute of the displayed time. The driver was able to quickly check our vouchers then hand us our tickets and maps. The view from the top deck was fine as we were near the front sheltered from any wind. The commentary was informative but I was surprised that no earphones were offered for alternative languages. Newcastle and Gateshead have some quite steep streets so the bus trip proved its worth in taking the strain. We stayed on the bus for the whole tour and did not do the hop-off, hop-on bit as anything we wanted to view proved to be within our walking range. The tour was value for money and we were satisfied that it fulfilled our wishes.
The tour was nice and commentary in English very clear. The stop at the Royal Mile was a bit crowded. The staff we very helpful.
Value for money - well worthwhile
