Poor visabilty..... Waste of time and money
, Aug 2022
Whilst the historical commentary was excellent in my opinion this your is not for the summer months when the trees are fully dressed in leaves. It was extremely difficult to see most of the buildings being referred to let alone taking any photos. At times the commentary repeated itself so you were not exactly sure what you were meant to be viewing.
Trip with grandchild from Morocco

Friendly driver. Good overview of trip. Comfortable ride. Sadly the website gave out incorrect instructions regarding purchase of tickets and we wasted time and money looking for The Redeption Office in Sidney St.
Good ride
, Jul 2022
We enjoyed the bus ride And narration, we did have some difficulty identifying the start point, And we were unable to access the on off feature because of that. We did have the 90 minute bus ride though which we enjoyed.
Good bus , loved the open...

Good bus , loved the open top . Driver was friendly . Would have preferred a person commentated as the radio commentary was a bit dry and uninteresting . Much preferred the punt journey and commentary from the punter , much more interesting and personal and you could ask questions .

Having to find Silver Street when it wasn't necessary. Then not being able to visit the place we came to see because we ran out of time.

Fabulous site seeing by bus.
, May 2022
Seeing most of the important sites was made easy by using the open top bus. You wouldn't see all the places if you travelled round in the car and it would be too far to see all if you were walking . We got of the bus halfway round for lunch then hopped back on again. It's so easy.

A very informative tour covering the city centre and a few outlying sights. An effective way to see Cambridge when time is limited.

Top-deck Cambridge
, May 2022
Seeing Cambridge from the upper deck of the very first bus of the day when the strrets were quiet enabled us to plan for our second broken circuit. Our eyes were backed up by the excellent and informative commentary. Subsequent high-lights were the American Cemetery, River Cam, King's College, University Botanic Garden and Fitzwilliam Museum. All four buses we used were relatively comfortable and the drivers very good to excellent.
Excellent for tourists.

Open top bus around the City, with interesting commentary. Just what we needed. Easy to hop on and off.
Informative bus tour

The best to do if you don't know the place! Great expetience Bus driver very accommodating Only I must say, I wish I knew that you can purchase these with punting tour at the same time which will be a lot cheaper.
An excellent way to see Cambridge
, Aug 2021
Excellent trip around Cambridge- our lady driver was most excellent- her driving skills were amazing negotiating all the tight turns etc. The commentary was again excellent and enhanced a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon of sightseeing- good value for money.
Good but not great
, Jul 2021
Sitting in traffic, not a problem, but it showed up how boring the music, and the commentary are. You seriously need to update these, and make them more relevant and exciting for younger people.

We walked to the place indicated to redeem the voucher only to find that it didn't exist. Fortunately, a tour bus arrived and we asked the helpful driver to point us to where we needed to go. She proceeded to issue the ticket valid for travel. If we had known this we could have boarded earlier and saved ourselves a 30 minute walk on a particularly hot day. We found the directions misleading but the driver needs to be commended for her assistance and for the tour.

american cemetary
, Feb 2020
This was the first open top bus tour that we had ever done,we got lucky as it was a sunny day for january. WE did the loop then decided where to get off, various points of interest for historic cambridge culminating in a visit to the american cemetary, which was very moving and the highlight. This tour is highly recommended. Allow at least four hours, do the loop, which takes you all around cambridge as the commentary is very informative, then do some stops which 'float your boat'
Excellent view!!

Best way to have a look around if you only have 1 day like us but really unless your a uni student there is not much to see or do in Cambridge.
