Very interesting and informative with a touch of humour and really nice to hear about Chester especially the history of some of the places that you have seen.The bus leaves from outside the Tourist Information Centre. Well worth the modest fee.

We came across the bus by chance. The tour guide was very informative and comical. A half-hour tour - good value for money. The views from the top deck were amazing and we learnt a lot about Chester. A must!

We love doing bus tours and we chose this one by chance. We had a lovely time, good chat (although it was a little over rehearsed and not natural) and we learned a great many things about Chester you do not get just walking about....More

Enjoyable and good value 30 minute trip on a fabulous bus. Great way to get a bit of Chester history and also learnt where a few of our old sayings came from. (Hence title of review).
