Who are we?


City Sightseeing Worldwide

City Sightseeing Worldwide is the world’s leading operator of open-top, hop-on hop-off bus tours. Our brand is globally recognised, boasting tours in over 100 cities spanning over 35 countries and 6 continents.


The company began in 1999 as City Sightseeing launched a tour in Seville, Spain and has since gone from strength to strength. By 2000, the franchise model was introduced and tours began to operate in a number of UK cities including Glasgow, York, Edinburgh and Bath. Within two years, City Sightseeing acquired Guide Friday, one of it’s biggest competitors, and overnight had tours in nearly 70 locations! Today, City Sightseeing boasts an impressive number of tours that span over America, Europe, Africa, Oceania and Asia.


In recent years, we have also added to our ever-growing product portfolio by offering further sightseeing experiences, including boat tours, walking tours and entry to attractions in select tour locations. We also offer tours in over 40 port locations across the globe, encouraging customers to experience our bus tours as a shore excursion.


City Sightseeing strives to provide millions of customers worldwide with an extraordinary service. On average, 13.5 million customers use our bus tours every year and 99% of these would take a City Sightseeing tour again.


Our hop-on hop-off concept allows our passengers to experience a flexible and enjoyable service, where they’re able to explore key points of interest at their own leisure. All of our tours also include a tour commentary, either live or audio, providing passengers with fun and informative facts about the city. In many of our locations, we offer multilingual tour commentaries to accommodate customers from across the globe. ​
