While every effort is made to ensure a smooth and frequent service there may be delays, reduced frequency and route alternations due to traffic and road closures. During busy times guests may not be able to board the first bus and may need to wait for subsequent buses.

      Wayne Kates, United States, 06/Jun/2018
    • The website does not make it clear that the ticket is only valid for the day or days selected when purchasing. Other hop-on-hop-off service is good for a month after purchase. For example...A 2 day tour can be taken any 2 consecutive days for up to a month after date of ticket purchase

      Lewis Smotherman, United States, 14/Jul/2019
    • Great service very useful to see the sights
      Would have been good to have been given a map of the stops at time of booking as when we got off the train it took a while to find
      But excellant value for money
