Was nice but some feedback
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Was excellent very friendly staff lovely afternoon tea food and your was really good and loved that they stopped for toilet break aswell … my only feedback would be a package includes poster maybe on the bus at tables and maybe a drinks menu also … as we got this as a gift and didn’t know what drinks where included then ended up with a £16 bill at the end for drinks …. Needs communicated what’s included and not when you arrive if this is gift and defo needs a drinks menu … my husband asked what beers do you have and he hates bud and was told only bud and then said can I just have an Irish coffee and was told sorry we don’t do that so ended up with just a coffee … defo needs a drinks menu on the table so people at least know the choice but also what their total
Bill will be … no bill or receipt either just the lady saying £16 please …

My sister booked this for my mum's birthday and they both loved it. Helen the lady on the tour was brilliant and nothing was to much trouble. My sister would highly recommend the big red bus tour and she and my mum have been telling everyone about it. Thank you for making it so special. Audrey and Anne

I enjoyed the experience just one little fault I would have really liked a second cup of tea which I was sure we'd get when the bus stopped but nobody came near.. And it was a bit of a struggle to get out of the seat to find someone.

SIMPLY WONDERFUL
Oct. 2021 • Couples
From start to finish it was relaxed and entertaining. Staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Was a birthday treat for my wife and she just loved it. The food and prosecco are delightful. Coffee was good too. A great way to see the city without killing your feet.
