Did the old bus tour around Marine Drive. Relaxing hour journey with a great commentary from John. Sit on the right for the best views.

On a very wet and windy day we toured the Great Orme in a vintage coach - no demisters & small wipers. Our driver was very interesting and knowledgable, Despite the bad weather, it was worth the experience.

Bus lovely and clean. Bus driver really nice and made the bus trip really interesting and he was very well informed. It was good value for money at £6 and the trip lasted an hour long. Really glad we went on it.

What better way to experience a tour of the Great Orme than in a vintage coach. The coach looks fabulous and has been lovingly restored. Wonderful.

In winter you get your tickets from the driver. On popular days would you get a seat if you turned up just in time? The bus and driver are there for about an hour before starting time.

No. It's a 1950s coach with steep steps and a narrow aisle. No wheelchair access.
