Last year we used this company that franchises the name and bus design in Cape Town and it was perfect. Unfortunately in Malta it was spoilt be the audio system not working at some seats and almost all the seat belts rusted up and inoperable. The driver just said move to another seat. On trying to return one bus driver... More

We bought tickets for two days because we wanted to do the North and South routes. On the first day the pick-up driver went by the hotel without stopping, so we had to wait an hour for the next bus to come. The buses are quite dirty and some of the seats are broken. The information you get over the... More

We bought two day tickets from an SMS travel rep. for the City Sightseeing Hop-on Hop-off buses. We had heard that the War Museum was closed but the rep. assured us that it was open. The first tour we took was the North one. The shuttle bus that picked us up at Sliema had its bottom floor awash with water... More

I've been on the City Sightseeing tour buses all over the world and enjoyed them but the Malta one was the worst experience ever. Firstly before the tour even started, we were collected from our hotel and travelled for 70 minutes to where the tour began. Our hotel was only 30 minutes away from the starting point. We were handed... More

I enjoyed my previous hop on hop off experiences in other locations and was looking forward to the commentary that usually accompany these trips. I was extremely disappointed that there was very little information given to you regarding the history of malta or even the location that the buses were stopping at. At times the stop wasn't even announced. I... More

Apart from being overpriced, the city sightseeing brand was one I thought I could trust. Though, it seems that when compared to the public transport this tour is simply awful. Some of the drivers were unfriendly and on one occasion, the driver had his wife with him who stood next to him and blocked the only clean window in the... More

We used this service only yesterday and spent most of our time waiting for the bus, travelling on the bus & rushing through sites to catch the bus. The first scheduled bus for the day didn't even turn up. The drivers are not particularly friendly or helpful. The buses are dirty. One of the buses had logo stickers on the... More

Due to shorter days it is difficult to get off at all the stops one wants to so took public transport on days we were not booked on a tour

Chose the City Sightseeing Tour Bus via Oasis Travel at Preluna Hotel, Sliema. The 10.55am shuttle bus to Valletta Terminus did not turn up at all. Had to wait for the 11.25am bus. The rep was sat outside the Preluna Hotel to confirm this. We did the North tour. Whilst shopping at the Craft Village, we saw the bus arrive... More
