Excellent experience for the money

My mom visited me from the States and we decided to do some "touristy" things. This was an excellent way to get around! We took advantage of the student and senior discounts and went to multiple places, saw lots of museums and sites, stepped off to get some lunch and when we were tired (she has a bad back and can only go for so long) we hopped off near my house and walked home. The drivers were good too! No swerving or harsh stops - was a really nice day out. I recommend booking through this site as well, we got our tickets cheaper than buying them somewhere else.

A good way to get your bearings around the city.

It was easy to obtain the tickets online and to download the app. The only fly in the ointment was that the buses did not yet have a QR code reader and so the driver was confused how to deal with the lack of a paper ticket receipt. Many visitors coming to use the tour will have a phone but no printer so that is a bit of a disadvantage. Our driver took the receipt number and reckoned he could sort it out later.
