Sorry what couch? I presume you meant coach but I don't know who you presume you are posting this to but no-one knows anything about a coach? Did you book something?

Public Buses are wheelchair accessible (having a ramp and the buses “lower” themselves).

Bus stops are also raised to assist.

Not all bus stops are raised and not all buses lower themsleves but the older buses do have a ramp which the driver will put in place to allow access/egress.

Watched the driver of the bus I was on this morning do that very thing.

You should contact the tour provider to check. They probably have several coaches, all, none or only some of which may be fully accessible.

As suggested contact the tour operator, they will be able to give a better answer than a bunch of strangers on here.

"with rennies or something" If you don't even know which of the many possible coach companies you're going with, I'm not sure how we're supposed to know about access.

These “coach” companies tend to use vehicles that are not especially equipped with disabled access or Ramps!

As suggested, you really need to contact the operator to confirm.

This is my problem, it's on trip advisor and it doesn't say who unless you read the reviews and there's no way of contacting anyone 😑

So I'm lost as to what to do

Has the tour been booked? If so with whom? Ask them
