We loved our tour on the open topped bus. We were blessed with good weather on our trip which made things even better. The guide was great and had some quirky tales to tell on the way around.

Both of these destinations have been considered but neither are suitable at this moment in time for the regular tour. However we have run private hires to IBCC which you could do if you wanted.

Dogs are allowed on the tour bus at the driver's discretion - generally there is no problem! If your dog is a large breed it may have to stay on the bottom deck.
