This was the 2nd time that I have used the City Sightseeing Hop-on Hop-off Bus as it so easy to use and it is always a memorable experience. I highly recommend this type of activity if you want a short/detailed view of the city you are visiting. I loved that you could get off at any stop and visit museums/galleries and then catch the next bus and carry on with the tour. We only had a day in York and it was great to get a view of the whole city in an hour. The staff were very friendly and professional and I would definitely make use of this service again, especially as your ticket is valid for 24 hours.

Really enjoyed the experience of the bus route, had been on this hop on and hop off some years ago - the Tour Guide information varied from bus to bus. We were a little disappointed that the cats on roofs was no longer included. But overall the journey was very enjoyable.

The center of York is very small. We did the sightseeing on a later day in York. Because the center is very small, we had already seen a lot. Still the explanation in the bus was very nice. Especially when we had a bus with a lady who was going to explain everything instead of a tape.
