Your standard headphones hop on bus, it was an ok tour through the city of Palermo, not a place I would recommend to visit on a Sunday, as the streets were jammed with a flea market. We took the bus loop twice, then got off an had great cannoli before heading back to our cruise ship.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2016

A bit cold at this time of year for an open topped bus but it did cover the sights we wanted to go to see.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

Enjoyable. A shame that the tour bus was not stopping at a marked stop outside the Teatro Massimo, which we discovered after nearly an hour of waiting.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2015

There were street vendors selling discounted tickets which made a line of hundreds just to get on the bus. We waited for hours!
