About The City Sightseeing Bournemouth Tour:

The City Sightseeing Bournemouth tour is a flexible hop-on hop-off bus service that lets you explore the sights of coastal Dorset at your own pace for either 24 or 48-hours. There's 21 stops to discover and tickets are valid from the moment they are first used. Tours run from April 8th until September 24th, 2017.

'Hop-on Hop-off' means that you're free to leave and rejoin the buses at any stop. If a particular landmark grabs your attention simply disembark at the closest point and explore up-close and on-foot.

While aboard the buses you can choose to sit on the open-top upper deck or on the sheltered lower deck. Regardless of where you're seated you'll be treated to on-board commentary about the landmarks and culture of Bournemouth via an English-language digital audio guide.
