5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Great tour. We definitely got to see more of the city than if we randomly walked around. I recommend going early as there are lots of great photography opportunities.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

There were no problems at all with this tour. I was impressed that there were staff positioned to greet us and point us in the direction of the stop where we alighted from the ship shuttle.

Nice way to see city on your own.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2014

We had trouble finding the starting point and had to walk quite far before we accidently found the stop. There should be better advertising as to where the stop was. The ear phone connections were not good. Someone needs to check the connections before accepting passengers... The drive around the city was good and I felt that we saw as much as we could. The bus was not busy as it had been in Gran Canaria and I felt that this was because of poor advertising.
