The bus never stopped at one of the stops listed to pick us up. It just drove on by. We waited for the next bus since I have a hip issue and cannot walk far or for long. After over an hour another bus just drove on by, not stopping. We only used the bus once that day. It was also filthy and none of the Covid precautions were there.

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 ticket...so 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.

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.

The bus driver was helpful and told me when the bus would be leaving, how long the tour would be and how to walk to the station afterwards. The bus tour itself was an hour long and the commentary was very informative and told so much history. The tour went past all the main sights in the city and also went out to Cardiff Bay-an excellent experience-would highly recommend it
