worth the money, we took the canal and bus combined ticket and I feel it was worth it. The bus takes you around near all the major sights while giving time to also walk around the wonderful city. The host/hostesses were amazing and helpful

The bus part of this tour was very disappointing.
The bus went so fast you could not see any of the sights
However the canal cruise made up for it much more relaxing and enjoyable

Next tine skip the bus and just use the canal

Another excellent experience! I thoroughly enjoyed the tours of on the bus and canal boat. The tour operators are professionals, and the buses and boats are state-of-the art and spotless. My expectations were exceeded and I will be certain to book again on my next trip. Great job !
