The Hop-On Hop-Off Bus tour is a great way to explore Malta for a good price. There are audiobooks available in a lot of languages, that will tell you interesting facts about the environment. It is cool to have an open roof. Normally I get a headache if I am in the car for too long, but now I did not.

We did have difficulty getting the bus on the first day

The bus drivers did not recognise our printed voucher and advised us to use another bus service. On day two of our holiday after wasting the day trying to get on a bus waiting for buses that would not let us ride on them. We called the customer service number on the printed voucher and the man we spoke to was not very helpful saying the bus would arrive outside our hotel at 09.00 hrs and to call if this did not happen. We knew this information was incorrect from the start as the buses did not travel down the road that the hotel was located and as he hadn’t asked us which hotel I was staying in how would he have known this would work It was not until we spoke to the hotel travel concarg was the matter resolved after a phone call to confirm this voucher was correct and he advised us on bus location and timings he put his name and his bosses name on the form in case of any further difficulties.

Fun and pleasure... but

The ride was fun. Hop on-off feature is very useful but do plan it well as you will run out of time quickly and you don't want to find yourself on the opposite side of the island while the last bus just waved uoy goodbye. Not that it's any problem, Malta's public communication is very efficient and you'll get home quickly anyways. In the morning shuttle service will get you from your hotel (at least from the major ones) to the assembly point then take you back home. Shuttle buses are not wearing company colors, they are regular buses so be sure not to miss them out in the morning. Overall experience is very good, even though the Malta Sightseeing buses have seen many seasons.
