What a great way to take in the whole city. The tour is very informative, the narrators are very good. The bus takes you all around so you can make plans where to go next. I would recommend this being your first tour when arriving so that you can plan the rest of your trip. That's typically what my husband... More

''I got that sunshine in my pocket Got that good soul in my feet I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops, ooh!'' That was my favorite line in ''Can't Stop This Feeling'' by Justin Timberlake. Because I can describe Chester City (during summer) as ''sunshine in my pocket'' I love this city.

We were lucky since we were the first passengers on the first bus bus of the day and had Jenny (the trip guide) to ourselves for about 75% of the trip at the very front of the bus! She was an absolute mine of information and we were even able to ask her questions. After we'd done the whole circuit... More

The thought of sitting on an open top bus for an hour did not seem to be a good idea, but some people who had been on the trip gave good report and so we paid and boarded the bus. Chester is a small city and an hour seemed a long time to go around, but it was quite educational... More

the city tour of Chester is well worth £8.50 for a concession ticket hop on and off all day, we got off at the river Dee where a cruise boat was ready on returning the bus had just pulled in for us to complete the tour.

Taking our granddaughter to see the sights on offer. This was a first class enjoyable informative tour. Seeing all interesting historic sights. Plenty to see without getting bored. At the end of the tour you can end up by the river where a boat trip can be taken. Much cheaper to purchase the two trips together. Again very enjoyable.

The hop on hop off bus tour in Chester is excellent in the morning you have an informative commentary by a person instead of the usual cd playing through headhones which is in the afternoon.our guide Jenny was wonderful in her explanation of medieval times gone by a great hour spent on this tour.
