    • Great way to get around and see the sites

      Hop-on-Hop-off at the sites you want to see. Saves your time and your body from all the walking you would have to do. Makes for an enjoyable day or two....

      Astrid Douglas, Australia, 07/Aug/2015
    • We had a great time!

      Rose Catapang, Norway, 05/Aug/2015
    • The service was good, however there are 2 points which I would like to comment.
      1. The final service in the evening does not terminate at the starting point and this information is not given to the passangers most of them were seated thinking the bus will take the full loop and will terminate at auber. Pls inform the passangers the last stop of the bus where it will treminate.

      2. some times there were too many buses coming back to back and some times it was a long wait for the next bus. Pls try to maintain consistency in the timings between the busses.

      Rest the tour was good and the audio guide was very informative.
