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

First of all- there are really only 2 hop-on-hop-off companies in Malta and they have very similar names- one is CitySightseeing Malta and the other is Malta Sightseeing- they are both red, both use the same font and they are incredibly hard to tell a part- I will get back to this later! I pre-booked this before I left on... More

We have been on City Sightseeing tours all over Europe and never had any problems until this. So many problems and so little help from staff who were rude and disinterested. There were far too many tickets sold for the amount of buses available. We had to stand for 45 minutes on the way back on a bus that was... More

We hopped on this bus for the north tour and expected to see valetta, (which it went through) mdina (only one drop off point in the centre), rabat (completely missed altogether) and the golden beach (where it stopped for 20 minutes - dont know why). Busses do not run on time or stop at all places its meant to) just... More

The Hop On - Hop Off bus tour service as become a institution in may parts of the world and it is usually a good way to orientate oneself to the various sights on offer especially if there are time limitations. We opted for the North Route. The best place for viewing is to sit is on the open air... More

Had no problem at all as we took this company instead at Gozo. Don't ever use the Malta Sightseeing company. Look at my other review at the company's page in tripadvisor for more details.

I along with many others joined the blue tour to have a meal in Mdina and have a view of other places we had seen during past holidays. The bus took us to the glass blowers and shops instead on Mdina and then went to Mostar. It was only after I had remonstrated with the driver that he agreed to... More
