This is the worst red bus experience I have ever had and we have been using red bus in Lisbon, Barcelona, Valencia and a few other places. Do not waste your money on this company in Malta. They picked us up from our hotel, Westin, took us to a drop off point which was a bus station with no further... More

This is a terrible experience. Meaningless timetable, hopelessly overcrowded buses, headphones that don't work and quite often a wait of 90 minutes if the buses are very full. We witnessed many people being refused entry on the bus because it was full. In addition, the routes offered by this company are inferior to those offered by the other hop on... More

We went on the red route open top bus at a cost of 17 euro each. Very disappointing. On the first bus at Sliema and onwards to Valetta and beyond our headphones didn't work but we were unable to change seats because the bus was very full. I tried going downstairs to advise the driver of the problem but there... More

It was nice travelling round on the open top bus but the headphone sets didn't work on a couple of the buses and when they did the information was a bit limited. At €17 per person, I thought it was a bit pricey for what you got, especially as the local buses are so cheep.

We went on the Bus ride to see the South of Malta. I found it to be really informative and really interesting. Great way to see all the sights and Valetta was stunning. Few tips, take some ice cold drinks with you and also a beach towel to sit on. The seats are plastic and therefore make you sweat in... More

I waited at the correct stop and it was 20min late. Then it was a shuttle with no commentary. When on a route it didn't go many places , the history and information was awful. Instead it advertised shops. Then the busses stop at 16:15 at one end of the island. The attractions are still open and it stops. I... More

We got on the bus in the expectation that we would be offered some commentary on the fabulous city that is Malta but there was none. I looked around to see if other tourists had head phones, but nope, everyone was in the same boat. My family and I had paid inflated transport costs for no reason. Also they didn't... More

The only thing they did with any efficiency is collect the payment vouchers. Public buses go to all the same places, run more frequently and are far cheaper and much better organized driven by polite and helpful drivers who appear to like their job. The public bus system also has programmed announcements and matrix displays telling you where you are... More

Malta is an awesome place however, taking the Hop on Hop Off bus sucks! Some of the bus stop doesn't have information about the time. Also, buses are never on time as advertise in the brochures. The only good experience we had was after waiting for 2 hrs for the bus there was a guy driving a van with the... More

My husband and I stayed on the South route although our ticket enabled us to travel on the North also. We had opportunities to dis-embark at any of the stops. This tour took us through a fishing village, Vittoriosa waterfront and beautiful vineyards. The headphones gave us access to the history of all the places we passed trhough. Normal price... More
