    The overall experience was nice. The red route is worthwhile but the yellow one certainly needs to be improved. Another comment: it was not clearly stated that the night bus tour was not included in the price. We thought that since we had bought the 48 hours ticket it would have been included. And we were never informed that the beer and the goulash dish were supposed to be offered in another place and not on board. So , try to be more specific in order to avoid misunderstandings
