Did not get off to a good start as the driver was over 15 mins late and the phone number for the company only worked Mon-Fri. They need to work on their administration. No apologies for lateness. That said the tour was enjoyable and the...More

Nowhere on the City Sightseeing website did it give the exact start address or the timetable. The hop-on hop-off bus runs 7 days a week from Bewick street near Central Station. Open-top double-decker buses run from 1030 every half hour, with the last circuit starting...More

Driver was welcoming and suggested best place to get off and on to see the (new) "Millennium Bridge" at opening time. We enjoyed the tour and decided to do part of the tour again later, as the tickets were "all day". Unfortunately, the map that...More

Starts at the bus stop opposite the Central station. Takes about an hour and gives you a bit of history and an idea of what there is to see in Newcastle. We did this first, and it helped us get our bearings. The commentary is...More

A decent enough trip around the city, but not great value for money. Yes, it is less expensive than City Sightseeing in a lot of other cities, however this is a fairly limited service, operating one route only, and only running every 30 minutes during...More
