We have used these viatour hop on - hop off tours several times. They are always worth the money. A good overview of the destination which gives options if you have time to take advantage of the transport and some special inclusions they offer.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

We had time to go through the tour once and then go back and visit the places that were most interesting to us.

You can't go wrong with a Hop-on Hop-off bus tour in any city. This is a great way to get a feel for the city and decide where you want to concentrate your touring. The audio with the tour is very informative and you have a choice of 6 to 9 different languages to choose from. If you plan of taking pictures from the bus you will want to be on the top level open air, if it isn't raining. You will want to get in line early to get a good spot on the bus, as they fill up quickly. Cadiz if a beautiful city and the old town section is a great area to visit. The best way to see it is to take the bus around town first, then hop off where you want to start your walking tour. There are different colored lines painted on the walkways throughout the city that you can follow to do your own walking tour. Information kiosks have maps of the city for self-guided tours that you can take. We were told that Cadiz is the oldest city in Europe and was originally settled by the Phoenicians. It has many beautiful forts, cathedrals and buildings. There are many tours to Seville that your can take from Cadiz, if you have the time. Cadiz is worth a day to see all by itself.
