Very good way to find the lay of the land in a new city. Reasonable price for 48hr ticket. Hop on & off where you like, when you like plus running commentary.

This tour doesn't last for more than 50 minutes and misses out on a lot this beautiful town has to offer. Commentaries are short, stops as well, sights in the center not really touched. You don't get to see the areas by the sea at all. I was really disappointed in what was offered for money.

Better than what I expected. Can walk from the ship with no problem. Very beautiful city and fountains. Took the Sight Seeing tour bus to see everything. It's the best bang for your buck. Then went back into the city on foot to see certain things over again. I would return again.

It's a nice pleasant hour and a good way to acquaint yourself with Genova. Little tip, firstly it's cheaper to book via their Italian website and pay in € secondly this site also offers a discount if you have a valid code for Frecciabianca trains.

The big red bus is usually so great for familiarizing us with new cities---we use it the first day to see what else we need to visit. This time in Genoa, (Sunday 9-7) the bus driver let 2 guys get on who spent the entire trip standing up front with the female driver & blonde ticket seller. They laughed &... More

We ended our cruise in Genoa in mid-November and we had the pleasant surprise , when we exited the terminal, to find that the City Sightseeing Bus was still in operation ( schedule advertised is April-Oct) . We bought the ticket with a 10% rebate as we had kept our tickets from Palma de Mallorca and we did 4 complete... More

The recorded commentary was blessedly easy to hear and covered all the high points. My friends and I loved the easy on-and-off aspect, in fact one of my friends went around several times. Great way to save your feet if you've overdone it the day before.

We found this bus tour extremely helpful in showing us around. On day one we just went right around the 9 stops to see where everything was. Commentary, available in 6 languages, was excellent and tickets are valid for 48 hours. On day two we got off at a couple of different stops and looked around before getting back on... More

We stopped whilst on a cruise, and the bus goes from right outside the terminal. Good value and nice and quick with loads of information about a beautiful city. The buses are frequent and seem to cover the entire city in no time at all. Perfect for getting off the cruise and visiting before lunch.
