The recording was out of date. Having a real person would have been a better experience. Not great value for money.

Waiting at the "first stop " to see the bus the bus on the other side of the road. I had down loaded a map to indicate where the first stop was scheduled.After much investigation found out the first stop was elsewhere.The map was at least 5 months out if date.Not a good start to our holiday.

See my review from yesterday....was not impressed as hop on off was not available at noon as a group of people had fully booked the bus and there was no other bus. Not in Cardiff again so can not use the this was a waste of my money. I am disappointed as I like to do the open top bus when I am in different cities for a limited time.

Great way to see all the attractions through the city and love the idea that you can hop on and off when you wish.
Long wait for the bus
, Aug 2021
We waited over 3/4's of an hour,then the driver said he couldn't leave for another half n hour as there was only 2 drivers on that day,plus the traffic was heavy...not good.
Great way to see the city sights.

Great facility to hop off and on at different locations within the city. Good commentary with headphones provided. Friendly and helpful driver. Well recommended.

A nice and easy way to get a quick tour of Cardiff and it is cheap. The gentleman who greeted us was really funny and kept us entertained while waiting to depart. Nice audio tour guide as well.

Was brilliant as we got to use the ticket twice. The only downside was that we didn't get to visit the museum as you had to book in advance on a Wednesday. We arrived Friday and left Monday. We could've if we'd realised that was the procedure.
