We must have waited 50 mins for a bus on a busy petrol- fumed corner. We were staying in Triana -the old pedestrianized quarter and soon realized that the modern parts of Las Palmas are really not worth seeing -ugly high rise flats etc. We got off for coffee at Playa Canteras and were not impressed, so waited on another...

This open top bus tour is a good option if time is limited and you don't have the knowledge of local bus routes. Having now done the trip if I was to return I would wear stout footwear and take the extra time to walk to the places I wanted to visit. I found myself comparing it with other open... More

The most attractive area in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is definitely in Vegueta, the old colonial city centre around the cathedral and casa de Colón, where the City Sightseeing Bus has no access. So you'll have little to see of the old city when taking this tour. Also the Cantera Beach can be seen only briefly at bus stop... More

Not the best open top bus tour but as the distances are quite large in town it is probably better than a taxi and you will see parts you might miss. A good introduction to get your bearings so do it first. If you are on a ship there is a stop outside the port.

We took the bus as a way of getting an overview of the city. The guide material on the head phones was very brief but efficient. I thought the bus drove a bit fast but then again it was freezing so we were happy we were done fast? Usually I don't like these kinds of buses but as we were... More

This sightseeing "hop-on, hop-off" experience is a great way to familiarize yourself with the city. Goes to the major attractions for a reasonable price, though I'm sure regular city transport is much more affordable if you're willing to do your homework on the bus routes. The commentary is useful though, and the one or two day pass is very convenient.

We went ashore from a cruise ship and saw the open top bus tours at a point opposite El Muelle shopping centre. It was very busy but we decided to buy a couple of tickets and wait for a bus. The tour was very good, lots of good views of the city but a major disappointment with the commentary via... More

We got a Multi Bus ticket from the bus station in Puerto Rico 25 euro each. Return on no. 91 to Las Palmas (the direct bus) a guided walking tour and a City tour on an open top bus. The walking tour of the Old Quarter of town was very good, we were the only couple on it! but it... More
