5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Take advantage of the free transfer to La Laguna.

3 star rating: Worth doing February 2015

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.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2015
