BIRMINGHAM TOURS SCHOOLS EDUCATIONAL BUS TOUR
Chocolate, custard, cars, whistles and bangles to the best in the world for science, medicine, education, sport and art – Birmingham has it all.
The Big Brum Open Top Bus besides running as a fixed date sightseeing tour on a seasonal basis is available for hire all the year round offering themed educational tours of the city. We can provide tours on your own or hired double decker bus if more appropriate at any time - price on application.Tours last approximately one and a half to 2 hours with a professional qualified city guide experienced in working with children. The bus can pick up and drop off at your school and has a capacity of up to 75 people – 40 upstairs and 35 downstairs. In many cases we have started the day with two classes swopping over at half time and then following on with another tour for another two classes. Drawing and photography have been an option at half time in Victoria Square. Tours can be linked in with places of interest in Birmingham such as the BMAG, Back to Back Houses, Museum of the Jewellery Quarter, etc., combining transportation with a themed event. Risk assessment available.

General interest tours
Tours which develop pride, knowledge and identity with the city such as Brilliant Brum and Be Proud to be a Brummie, art and architecture in the city. This tour can be tailored to your school year and subject requirements. Developing the theme Be Proud to be a Brummie we can take a general look at the city including the major buildings of interest pitched at the right level for the age group concerned. Just riding on the Big Brum Open Top Buz is an exciting experience in its own right. We can explore the social and industrial history of the city and its geography comparing it with other regions of the country and our most recent theme has been studying the city as a tourist destination.
I would like to see all the schools in the city experience the Big Brum Open Top Buz as the tour develops pride in the city and unites the people of Birmingham. I would also like to show off Birmingham to all the schools in the UK!

Both in February when the weather was very cold two of my favourite things to date this year have been the school trips for Christ the King Catholic Primary School and Hodge Hill Primary School – below are two of the letters I received from the children.
A big "Thank you" for taking our 9-11 year old children on tours of Birmingham last week. The feedback from the children was excellent and they are now following up the stimulus provided by their Birmingham trip with work back in class. They are also putting together a dispaly using the photographs taken. I asked all the teachers what they thought and they all said that the guides were first rate and the trip served our purpose well and something the children will always remember.
I was going to email you today anyway as I wanted to tell you how fab I thought Ian was. He spoke amazing German (far better than mine!) which really helped, and the tour was interesting and he made it relevant to the school group which was great and then repeated some in German. Everyone said how good it was, and I'd certainly come back again.

Halesowen College hired the bus for a tour of Birmingham for their tourism students. The guide emphasised the points they had to cover on their syllabus. We looked at Birmingham's appeal to visitors with regard to location, natural features, built attractions, range of accommodation, eating out, where to go shopping, local transport, sport and leisure, famous people.... Birmingham has it all!
Yes, we had a fab day thank you! Exactly what we were after and the weather was kind to us too. The guide was fantastic and very accommodating, please pass on our regards.

For the second year running Highfield School in Saltley enjoyed two tours on the Big Brum Open Top Bus. When someone asks me why I run the bus, the answer is what could be better than seeing all the excited faces of the school children and hearing them scream when they went under Saltley Viaduct. I hope to have some photos shortly and the weather was amazing.

St Dunstans School enjoyed a school tour on the Big Brum Open Top Bus. When the MAC was reopened back in 2010 it was St Dunstans children who came on the bus singing all the way from Kings Heath to the MAC as part of the celebrations.
