You can also buy tickets from the following places:
- From the Visit York's Information Centre at 1 Museum Street, YO1 7DT (credit/debit cards accepted).
- On any Coastliner service.
- From railway stations on the TransPennine Express route when you buy your rail ticket. Ask for a 'York Tour Bus' ticket. (Please note that this is not the same as a 'PlusBus' ticket, which is not valid on the sightseeing buses).
- In addition, some hotels in York also sell tickets for the CitySightseeing tour. Ask at Reception.
The famous red CitySightseeing buses are available for hire all year round.
Weddings, corporate events, birthdays, school proms, school field trips and other special occasions can be made more memorable by adding a double-decker bus! For weddings we can dress the bus appropriately with ribbons and bows.
Show your guests around York with a professional guide (or guide it yourself). Buses are also available for transport only (no tour).
We'll pick you up pretty much anywhere within the city boundaries, providing there is access for a double-decker, and set you down wherever you want to be afterwards.
Our buses carry 70+ passengers (about 40 under cover, if it's one of those days).

The novelty of seeing the city from the top deck of a sightseeing bus, and being captivated by our guides' stories of York, is a fun experience that thousands of school children from all over the UK, and beyond, have enjoyed with York CitySightseeing.
Our guides are masterful at catching young people's imaginations and entertain with anecdotes which are sometimes surprising, sometimes funny and sometimes grisly! If you require specific areas of the National Curriculum covering (Key Stages 1 and 2 are quite relevant) tell us in advance and your guide will endeavour to include this in appropriate areas of their commentary.
PRICES FOR SCHOOL HIRES ARE LOWER NOW - STARTING AT JUST £150
Hire your own bus
For an all-in price we will pick your party up from your point of arrival, accommodation or wherever the previous item on your itinerary took you, and with your own personal guide, take you on a fascinating trip around the sights.
Call or email for a no obligation quotation.
Tickets in advance
If you would like to take your children on a CitySightseeing tour but prefer to keep your arrangements flexible, buy your tickets in advance and then you can join any of the regular tours throughout the day. (If you have a large party you may need to split up and join two consecutive buses on busy days.)
Standard ticket prices are above. For parties of 10 or more Child tickets are £3.50, Students £6 and Adults £9. For a group of 20 or more the prices reduce to £3, £5 and £8.
If you would like to buy tickets in advance for your visit please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop us a line at
Transdev York, 23 Hospital Fields Road, Fulford, York, YO10 4EW.
We will send you an invoice if required.
During the day, one bus an hour has a recorded multilingual commentary, which also includes a Kids' track especially for school-age children.
A risk assessment is available. All our drivers are DBS (formerly CRB) checked.
