Excellent day tour of Yorkshire Dales in comfortable (Covid-safe) minibus with friendly and knowledgable local guide Lee. Got to see so many places that would have been impossible without a car, lots of time to take photos, grab a coffee and have a walk at multiple stops. Great National Park, stone walls, tales of castles and abbeys. Very peaceful and tranquil stops, waterfalls galore! Even a stop at the Wensleydale Creamery to buy local cheese and have a relaxing bite to eat. We even managed a quick stop in the 3rd smallest city in the UK, Ripon, with its medieval cathedral. Breathtaking scenery and the highlight of our week's holiday in York.

I booked the full-day private tour of Haworth & the Yorkshire Dales, and I was lucky to have Mark as the tour guide. He was professional, knowledgeable and he would make sure you have the best experience and that you enjoy the trip. I never felt rushed or that I am missing on something. I applause BOBH for the measures they took to be COVID secure; I never felt that I was risking my health or being unsafe. I highly recommend booking with them, and I am sure you would have a great experience as did I.

We did this ultimate private tour with tour guide Tim. This tour is really worth the money and the convenience of being able to see around Lake district while enjoying our company with Tim. The tour itself was really nice and our tour guide was really knowledgable. He kept us awake throughout our trip and he even took good photos of us. He was friendly and all smiles. The covid restriction was kept in place and there were hand sanitisers inside the van. I have already recommended this to my friends. Well done!

I joined the North Wales Adventure with Busy Bus, on 26/9/2020. It was a fantastic day trip through N. Wales and the Snowdonia Park. The places we visited, the scenery we met, the organisation of the trip were brilliant. Frank, our driver and guide was amazing! He made our tour unforgettable! A wonderful man, who loves his job and made us a little Welsh too. I'm looking forward to joining more day trips with Busy Bus. Thank you.
