alles in Ordnung

Die wichtigsten Stellen wurden angefahren, wie erwartet. Es scheint ein großer Konkurrenzkampf zwischen den Anbietern zu herrschen, schlägt sich jedoch nicht in der Sauberkeit der Busse nieder. Ein Bus war sehr verratzt, ansonsten okay. Informationen über Kopfhörer in den verschiedenen Bussen auf unterschiedlichem Niveau. Schifffahrt war - auch Dank des schönen Wetters - sehr angenehm und eine tolle Ergänzung.

Terrible Customer Service

We purchased tickets online but they would not accept a digital version. Employees were unhelpful and the team leader was rude and sarcastic. We arrived at around 12 pm at the first stop across from the Hard Rock Cafe.

Good overview of city but way too time consuming.

Disappointed at very short narration yet very lenghthy delays at most stops. First stop where you get voucher after booking online was a 45 min walk from central and there wasno info about alternatives. Reps at stops seemed very confused about which bus we booked. Required to print voucher—couldnt use mobile view.
