We had a 48 hour pass and started by doing the whole tour from the tourist info which helped us to get our bearings. We then had lunch and got back on to go to Mary Arden Farm as it is the furthest away. We spent two hours there and so used the bus again to visit Anne Hathaways Cottage the next day. We then used the bus to drop us back at the station when it was time to go home!
Great sight seeing and convenient dropoff points.
Brilliant tour - great audio guide, and perfect way to visit all the important properties - Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Mary Arden's Farm and then the properties in the centre of Stratford. Bought the tickets on line beforehand - and saved quite a bit. Drivers all very polite and friendly. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
We booked the 48 hour ticket in advance and made a great saving. As we were staying out in Wilmcote, a short walk from Mary Arden's Farm, the bus service was great for us as we left the car at the B and B and used the bus to get in and out of Sratford - that in mind, it may have been better, for us at least, if it carried on a bit later into the evening. The tour itself is very informative with each passenger given a set of headphones to listen to commentary if they choose.
this was the only way to get to the locations farther away--we were able to get to Anne Hathaway's house and Mary Arden's Farm with the bus. Very relaxing way to get around.
Bought a two day pass before we went,if we had bought on the day it would have been more expensive.The ticket proved to be invaluable as the weather was awful.Regular and on time buses meant it was a doddle to see all the sights and spend as much or little time at each one.Drivers were extremely helpful and courteous couldn't have wished for better service.The only regret is that we didn't do the town attractions early in the day as I think that they would be less busy than in an afternoon.Also Mary Ardens farm could have done with a longer visit as there was loads to see and do.Try to be there at midday as a Tudor meal is served to the staff who give a commentary and answer questions.All in all a great experience.
So glad we booked this tour. Great commentary - fun and informative. Lovely tour around the surrounding town. Recommend.
We loved this Viator experience! There was so much to see in Stratford upon Avon! The bus ride was smooth and the tour information was excellent ! The audio part of the tour worked great. What a historic city!! We love Viator!!
This worked out well for us...we used a cab only once while staying in Stratford. We were able to see the highlights of the city. Worth it!!
Hop on and Hop off is a very good way of seeing Stratford upon Avon, the bus stops at all the historic places!
