Easy to book on line. Allow time to cross the road to the booth to change on line booking for paper voucher, and then cross back again. The website lead me to believe I did this on the bus itself. I was grateful for the conical hat offered, although the string had been tied in a knot and I had to hold it on my head to stop it blowing off which made my arm ache. Interesting commentary, although lots of silences which could have been filled with further information. Accurate timings. Overall a superb way to get a flavour of the city. I remained on the bus the entire route, popping back to places on foot.

It is an excellent way to navigate the city in the early part of your visit. We first caught the bus at the start at 9 am and did the one hour lap. The next time we got off at a chosen stop and later used the bus to return to our hotel area. We were unable to use the bonus evening trip due to other plans. We were satisfied with the 24 hr ticket because we were happy to use taxis or walk to locations on our other days.

You can pass almost all relevant sights. The only drawback is that the buses only run every hour during the week. One round takes 1h 15min, so you have to wait 45min for the next bus to leave. Then we got a lot done. We had a 48-hour card. In our opinion, a 24-hour map is completely sufficient to get a good overview.

fast and complicated booking, good contact in advance with the organizer, tour guide. pleasant ride in a good modern minibus. Tour guide well prepared and informed. great experience. thx

Reallly enjoyed the trip the guide was very very good and he lead us really well. He was really articulate and friendly.
