What people are saying about Bristol

This was a great activity to explore the heart of Bristol and learn a bit of history. HIGHLY RECOMMEND The clues a good difficulty level. You can also make this a pub crawl if you want. Did this by myself and still thought it was pretty fun. Took about 2.5hrs total.

We did one loop of the tour and enjoyed it so much we switched sides of the bus and stayed on for another tour. After travelling to Bristol it was lovely to be able to sit and relax while someone else did the driving

I loved the hop on hop off tour bus the driver was friendly and knowledgeable. A great way to see Bristol.
