5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Excellent way to find your way around the city, old and new bits. Definitely worthwhile, especially being able to get to the top of the hill and walk around the Roman Ruins and awesome Cathedral. the veiws from the top are amazing so plan to spend at least an hour or so up there.

We wish they had included the Blue Lagoon, but the trip was very good. We especially appreciate that they stop at/very near the cruise port.

This was a great trip. We were able to get off in key places e.g., the Roman ruins, visit and take photos, then get back on the bus later in the day. I would gladly do this trip again.
