It would be so helpful if they gave a bit more info though. With work going on in St Catalina square, things weren't easy to find. I had to ask for a map and we didn't find out how to get the commentary until we'd missed half of it. Same for everyone - you could see them all fiddling for... More

Firstly the bus I was on looked to be at least 30 years old, most of the headphone sockets didn't work and the audio quality was shocking. The upholstery was damaged and the upper deck seats totally faded and perished by the sun. I doubt the bus would pass any safety inspections, the doors wouldn't open properly! The driver seemed...

We were in Gran Canaria with a cruise ship. This should be an easy way to see the city but there's not much to see. Just grab a taxi to the Colombus house and everything you want to see is in the neighbourhood. Big part of the tour is not interesting. Our bus was really old and half of the... More

Headphones were hopeless, we spent most of the time stuck in a traffic jam going through busy, boring streets. We had to wait 45 minutes to be picked up again in the old part of the city. We were charged 18 Euros each. Don't waste your time or money.

Apart from having a tour of the city, this was hopeless as the headphones were not working, and the sockets that you plugged into were loose. It wasn't only one set as we tried a number of seats, but having said that the commentary that we did get was less than informative anyway. If you do take this tour, avoid... More

This bus tour is fairly standard. Perhaps a tad expensive for what the city has to offer as you're unlikely to get off at many of the stops. The audio commentary in English is good and offers a history of the city/island.

Audio jacks failed to work and it appeared neither did anyone else's. Thought this was a very expensive bus ride to tour a place with relatively little historical interest. You need to pay attention on the top dec not to get swiped with a palm tree leaf. This type of service is aimed at the people coming off the cruise... More
