Once again City Sightseeing did not disappoint. Stops at all the must see places in Stratford. Has a stop at the Train Station too if travelling in from Birmingham as we did.

Like all the City Sightseeing Tours, you receive a great informative tour around major and minor sights in the city. In addition, our driver was helpful/friendly, the tour audio was informative and made us laugh and the bus stopped at all the major places.
