Thank you for the 5* review. We agree that our drivers do a fantastic job navigating their way around the streets of Bath. The Skyline Tour does also have a live guide- but this is currently one an hour.

After visiting the Roman Baths, we spotted the City Sightseeing bus nearby (around the back of the church) and decided to take a tour of Bath. We sat upstairs in the sun, where we plugged in the head phones that were given to us and...More

The tour is pre-recorded and this looses something of the interest. Nothing particularly relevatory or particularly interesting in the tour. Roads are perpetually jammed so felt really tedious and slowMore

I have been to Bath countless times, but on my last visit we gave the Tourist bus a try as it was a lovely, if chilly, morning. I saw so many things you just don't see walking around the city. Bath has beautiful architecture and...More

While the tour was nice and the Big Bus group are very consistent in their quality of tours and tourguide information, I felt like there was not that much substance for it to be a tour in itself. Bath is a small enough town that...More

The bus is a good way to get around the city and find out about the history of Bath. When we were there, the commentary was recorded, and the volume was too loud, but could not be adjusted. That was rather annoying.
