A wonderful afternoon spent enjoying this wonderful trip. You can get off where you like and the ticket staff and drivers are very helpful. Just another thing the Isle of Wight can be proud of.

The Needles Breezer is a really lovely way to travel from Yarmouth to the Needles. It is also half price for National Trust members. The only downside is that there is a pre-recorded commentary playing on the bus telling you about the surroundings but when...More

The best thing I love about them is that they don’t give you the uncomfortable earphones but instead you can hear the commentary broadcasted throughout the bus. Also, the drivers are great, which makes the ride comfortable, and they are also always polite and pleasant....More

Quite time-consuming to get to where this tour starts if you arrive by ferry from Southampton. Have to take 2 different public buses, which takes quite a while, but is not difficult to do and you see more scenery on the island. Not much time...More

Started the tour from yarmouth harbour. Excellent driver on narrow roads. On board commentary of what your seeing from the bus. You can hop on and off. Needles tacky with cheap shops. Did not stop. The needles itself very interesting. Good round tour.

For most of the first 20 minutes or so we were vainly looking for red squirrels as we barrelled along the country lanes. There was a problem synching the recorded commentary with the geography - some of which felt like space filling anyway After the...More

We enjoyed getting the needles breezer. It took us past some interesting places such as the thatched church. We got the group ticket for up to 5 as it saved us a lot of money. It was well worth it. The commentary was interesting, and...More

it depends on what type of pass you are using. They will not accept the over 60's pass on these Breezers but you can get a discounted ticket for £6 which can be used on any of the Breezers for 24 hrs. I would recommend that... More
