We were fortunate to enjoy wall to wall sunshine during our visit to Brighton wary in June 2021. Our friendly driver was excellent during our 50 minute bus tour as he easily negotiated the narrow backstreets of Brighton to ensure that we didn’t miss any of the famous city landmarks. 10/10 also for realistic ticket pricing and the ‘on board’ commentary. So often on tours like this, it’s impossible to hear the narrator through headphones or speakers on board. The professionally recorded, male and female, narration provided a clear description of the places of interest as we passed by together with fascinating stories about the city, past and present. Indeed, we enjoyed the tour so much that we remained on board for a second trip around Brighton - in the sunshine. Dave & Barbara from Glasgow.

Enjoyable and interesting tour

Took all three tours and saw a lot of the local area. Interesting facts on the tour and if you hop off at a site you can catch the local bus back to the centre at no extra charge. Handy for the Blue and Green routes as these are every couple of hours between pick ups.

Great fun and really interesting!

Myself and my little boy had a great day. It was very hot and the wind in our hair was just what the doctor ordered! My little boy was in awe and enjoyed listening to all the interesting facts and history gems about our city. I’m sure he will be telling his friends at school all about it! The tour guide and driver were really friendly and helpful too! A great day!
