Just a brilliant tour/attraction. Touring an historic city, on an historic mode of transport, with a superb guide full of local knowledge and historical anecdotes. This is one of those "I'll never regret doing that" experiences. Wonderful.

A great way to pass half an hour on a 'vintage' bus. Amusing anecdotes & information from Barbara dressed in Georgian style. Good value for money
