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

Was on the island whilst on a cruise ship. As we had never been to Gran Canaria before we decided to get an open top bus. Something we regularly do. We were very disappointed overall. We had to wait a good 30 minutes for a bus, despite being advertised as every 15 minutes. It cost 18 Euro each. The round... More

Bought a combined bus and open top tour ticket from Maspalomas to Las Pamas for 25 euros each. Commentary nothing special. Many places to plug in your head phones not working. Timing of buses unreliable. Meant to be every 20 minutes but waited 45 at one stop late in the day!

Fabulous place to visit. So very different to the south of the island. Lovely beach and beachfront walk with lots of cafes and restaurants. Loved it here. Cooler in Las Palmas than the South but more authentic. Disabled and families with push chairs will have no problems as streets level and ramps to get onto beach. I would have loved... More

We had a day visit to Las Palmas as part of a cruise. We were so impressed (especially with the beach facilities for disabled) that we decided our holiday next year should be a two week visit to this very accessible town. As we only had about 8 hours, and wanted to spend time on the beach, we didn't really... More

Arrived by bus from the Porto Rico and did a complete circuit from bus station and back. During this time noted what I would like to see. First stop was the shopping centre for a coffee and toilet break. From here you can see the port area. Then hoped on the bus again to the central beach. Walked some distance... More
