City Sightseeing tours are a really great way to quickly see a new city when you're only there for a limited amount of time. We really enjoyed the tour, lots of interesting facts and things to see. The only reason I didn't rate this as excellent is because one of the earphone sockets in the front seats at the top... More

We only had a half day in the city and found this tour bus to be informative and not long like the ones in London. The commentary was helpful and buses were hourly. Stops were in the centre and on the fringes. The driver also allowed us to buy punting boat tour tickets which we did as the perfect accompaniment... More

We were visiting for two days so it was ideal to get on a tour bus, we went round twice then decided where we wanted to get off

We've done many hop on, hop off tours and find they provide a basic introduction to get acquainted with a city. This one does just that, but often from afar as a lot of the downtown portion is not on the actual travel route. Also, we would have preferred a little more historical or local information rather than the abbreviated... More

On the down side, this by tour is fairly expensive and we had trouble with quite a few of the headphone sockets for the audio and had to move several times. On the plus side, this is probably the best way to see the sights of Cambridge, get your bearings and learn a bit about the cities history. The full... More

We have been on several other city sightseeing tours in various cities so decided to go on this one as a way of getting to know Cambridge and you can get off and back on later at stops. We got a reduction for a combined sightseeing and punting tour and lasts as the bus ticket is for 24 hours we... More

A "hop on, hop off" guided tour. Well organised. Each passenger is given their own set of earphones (no extra charge, included in the ticket price) to plug into the sockets next to the seat for a running commentary along the tour. Started off lovely weather but suddenly, part way round the city….POURING RAIN!!! DELUGE!! Was unexpected so all top... More

You can pick the bus up from so many locations and the bus takes you to 19 different stops. The bus does have the tour in 8 languages but I did feel sad that there wasn't an actual tour guide like Liverpool or other cities. It is head phones only. The ticket is valid for 24 hours so it is... More
