The tour was very interesting, although we had picked the hottest day of the year to do it and sat on the top open deck. Its worth checking where the bust stops are first as we took a Taxi into town only to find that the bus stopped about 50 yards from our Hotel so we could have got on there and save the taxi fare. Just beware that if you book online via GetYourGuide you must print the ticket as the buses cannot accept mobile phone emails. We didn't realise this until we caught the bus. Luckily for us the bus driver allowed us on but a more officious operative could have insisted on a printed ticket. Better warnings are required on the website as it is very much in the small print and several people catching the bus had a similar problem. A great tour though revealing lots of facts about Cambridge.
It was easy to obtain the tickets online and to download the app. The only fly in the ointment was that the buses did not yet have a QR code reader and so the driver was confused how to deal with the lack of a paper ticket receipt. Many visitors coming to use the tour will have a phone but no printer so that is a bit of a disadvantage. Our driver took the receipt number and reckoned he could sort it out later.
We arrived at the stop just as the bus was arriving. There was plenty of space up top to enjoy a great view. The kids were provided with crayons and a game paper.
Excellent service, good commentary, clean and well maintained bus. Was not quite a 20 minute wait at times, but basically we loved our tour
A really good way to see the city of Cambridge on a beautiful sunny Sunday. Very informative, I learnt some things I didn't know.
