WAS OK BUT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN HELPFUL IF HEADPHONES OR MAP PROVIDED SO THAT ONE KNEW WHERE YOU WERE ON ROUTE.
Did the north route trip and 'hopped off'' at Mdina which really shouldn't be missed. Circular route took in all the main sights of the Valletta up towards the northern tip of the island. Just a quick tip the photo shown on the Viator web page is of the wrong bus company. The tour is run by City Sightseeing and they own the red buses, jump on one of these and not the white ones.
The tour itself was well done and well worth the price. The one major negative was the utter chaos at the stop near the cruise ship pier. The representatives there made no effort to maintain a queue; the seats went to those who pushed on most aggressively.
While the trip and itinerary were as advertized, the company giving the tours needs to organize the people into proper lines for entry onto the bus. People who had waited for 35 minutes and were second in line were not able to board because there was no organized queue. While it may be okay for younger people to push back into the masses to claim their seat, elderly people and people with children were out of luck. This disorganized chaotic entry ruined the day...
Very confusing as to what company we had booked with? Finally we got on one tour and when we got off we were told that the last bus was at 3.30pm, so had very little time to see the sights.
We were not handed any earphones on entering the bus so had no idea as to where we were and where to disembark, the worse thing about this tourist excursion was the buses finished running at 3.30 pm giving us very limited time at each stop. We only managed half of one route and none of the other.
Very disappointed in this service, have had better trips in other countries via the tourist bus. I think a revision of time table needs to be considered !!!
