Lots of pick up and drop off points , easy to find and staff very helpful. We went all the way round and then stayed on until we got to the castle. Had a look round and caught next bus back to town. As we didn't start until 1pm we could use it the following day as well.

Was a good experience, we went all the way round on the first day , to give us an idea of what we wanted to see and the next day we did the castle, Picasso museum, motor museum and the boat ride which could have done with more info about the places we were passing, so that was a bit boring, the motor museum was really good and the castle would have been good if they had some English translation of what was written on the walls. The staff on all the services were brilliant.

Great , it goes all over the main attractions. The explanations provided by the audio commentary via headsets were extremely informative. Note: avoid the "green line". It is just a minibus, no panoramic views, no attractions, it solely transports people to a few museums that are further away. But the red line is great.
