The easiest way to get around in Bath and make certain you see all the sights there are to see. Good value for the money.

Brilliant I used it to get around Bath for the whole weekend after I had taken both tours as although it says 24 hours it is in fact valid for 2 days.


October 2012

We caught the train to Bath ( the only way to travel there) and were straight on the Hop on Hop off Bus which enabled us to have a good look around Bath and decide which sights we wished to explore further.

We would highly recommend a trip to Bath and the Hop on Hop off Bus as part of the trip.

This was my second time using this pass and it comes with a Bath city scenic tour pass so make sure you realize your getting about two tours for the price of one! Truly gorgeous city with the funniest tour guides!

Enjoyed both the City and Skyline Tours with this one ticket. We used the hop-on hop-off several times which allowed us to get off and see the sights then back on to the next one - very convenient and saved us walking up a few steep hills. The Drivers and Guides were all very professional and friendly. Would definitely recommend. Bath is a lovely place to visit.

I would still book with Viator for my next tour. Everything was simple, fast, and hassle-free.

Very enjoyable.

This was a good hop-on hop-off bus tour of the city. Your ticket includes both the inner and outer city bus tour and both were worthwhile. It was a good way to see the city in a relatively short period of time.

We enjoy the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus tours! This was no exception. They had two routes and both were informative and fun. The only suggestion I would have is to include public bus transportation with it. Our bed and breakfast was a little ways out and it would have been nice to be able to use the public buses as well.

Great way of seeing the city and getting your bearings. Very useful to be able to come back to places you want to spend more time seeing. Commentary interesting and helpful.

Bath is the most beautiful city, bus stop in from of Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths. They have 2 routes, the city line and the skyline. The skyline route is great for pictures

Commentary very informative. We have used the hop on hop off buses for a few of our trips and have always enjoyed them.

Rode a couple of segments. Both live commentary and recorded were informative.

This is a small city but the tour enabled you to see both the inner city and another bus that visited the outskirts.

Great tour - very good way of getting to know Bath in 50 minutes!

Excellent way to see Bath when you first arrive. The only fault with the tour was the bus driver drove too fast for you to take photos of those tourist attractions you'd come to see.

great time

Bath is not as big as you would think. We easily walked around the city from one attraction to another. We did however go on both tours available on the Hop on Hop off ticket and they were very informative and enjoyable. Thanks

The service was fine...once I was allowed on the bus. When I presented the printed out documents to the driver he was clearly reluctant to accept them. In the end he did accept the papers and allowed me to board. The driver had not received the necessary training he needed for this matter.

An excellent introduction to Bath with good audio guide. Unfortunately amount of traffic slows tour but it's not their fault!
