Always book this bus when we tour a new city. A great overview of what to look for.Beautiful city and enjoyed the commentary. The down time in mid afternoon is always difficult for North Americans.
An excellent tour round a lovely city. The bus driver was most helpful. Fortunately one of the bus stops was close to our hotel so we were able to use it as our form of transport across the city. Highly recommended!
We toured the Guggenheim Museum in the morning; hence, we only had the afternoon to take the hop on hop off bus. That was a big mistake. We wish we had spent more time with the bus route. It was very informational and convenient, and there were nice views from the bus. We will definitely do this again if we ever go back to Bilbao!
We enjoyed the ride. We were impressed by the city. We were lucky to catch the bus just before it was departing, since the bus only goes once an hour
Bilbao is a relatively new tourism destination since the opening of the Guggenheim so this tour gives a great overview of the city in a relatively short period of time. It's concise and interesting. There aren't very many actual buses doing the circuit, so plan your tour time.
A great way to see the main sights of a city. The driver stopped, when it rained, to slide the roof across, and then again, when the sun shone, to open it again. Therefore, we stayed dry and enjoyed fresh air ans sunshine, whilst viewing a very nice city.
Arrived in Lisbon on the Ruby Princess and the Hop on bus was already at the port as we docked. Very easy access and great tour routes on both the red and blue lines. Only problem was Lisbon traffic which turned the red tour into 2.5 hours. Be prepared for traffic and bring sun screen!
Great way to see the city. Only 1 hour long however didnt commit to the scheduled time.
As we were only in the city for a short time this tour gave us a comprehensive look at the city, All points of interest were shown to us and many historical facts given to us.
At the end of the tour we felt a flavour of Bilboa had been given to us and we would like to return for a longer spell to explore the city in more detail.
Good tour but the bus used is showing signs of wear. Also a bus every 30 minutes would be helpful. 11.00 is too late for a first departure.
This was more like a bus tour than a true hop-on hop-off bus. There was only one bus so if you got off, you had to wait an hour for it to return. Also, in other countries, they give you an ear phone for your language which was better than having to listen to the announcement in 3 different languages. Because of this, you didn't get as in depth commentary. Still, it did give a nice overview of the city.
Good sights and description on Bilbao history. The sad thing is that the description was not in sync with item described. Neither were any of the stops called out. When the bus stopped, the name of the stop and what was there should have been told by the driver. Ride took 1 hour-would have a longer ride with more sights.
On time for pick up but we found it very difficult to follow the narration and/or the bus travel and narration did not match so identifying specific buildings was often not possible. The hop on hop off in other cities has been a true bonus to our city visit but not so here.
OMG - the stops were SO hard to find and identify. Luckily we managed to spot the building in the background of the official photo otherwise we would have wasted our money.
We went to the first stop on the receipt of the ticket that I got at home, and no bus came. We walked to the second stop and waited, and still no bus came. Finally, we went to the Guggenheim stop, and a bus arrived. In the meantime, we had walked and asked locals about this bus service for about an hour in the summer heat. I would definitely guide your passengers better on how to meet up with the bus to best start the tour. Also, there were no earphones for tour, so the passenger conversations in the other languages around us were VERY distracting. The sites were great though.
