Initially we were impressed with the bus. Our first guide was excellent. She gave clear directions plus additional info re places to hand. However from then on the staff were all downhill ! We saw guides asleep on the bus, continually using mobile phones, messing about with other members of staff at bus stops, failing to check tickets and finally... More

If you visit a city for the first time these trips are always a good way to get your bearings and this is no exception. You get two days on two routes, a hop on boat trip a night tour and a walking tour for just over £10 - only problem is its very busy so better starting early. If... More

Generally I'm not a big "get on the tour bus" guy. However, as I was taking my mother this trip I thought she would enjoy something a little more structured, so after visiting the Central Market, a spoke with a vendor and agreed to the "Hop On Hop Off" bus tour. And I have to say it was actually quite... More

Great value for money 2 days 2 routes and a bonus boat ride. OK the commentary is not the best and it can be a bit slow and oh that tinny music but we used the service for the first couple of days of our trip and it certainly gave us a grounding of what was what and where things... More

An almost great way to spend your first day. It got us to all the tourist related areas we were interested in visiting. During peak afternoon hours the bus filled up and you may end up standing for a stop or two. We caught an evening boat cruise which was noisy and crowded. While not a total waste of time... More

The Giraffe Hop on, Hop off city tour bus was excellent value, you get two days for the price of one, and the choice of 2 bus routes, a river boat and night tour. There are a few to chose from, but I could recommend this one. Recommendation is to go on the red route first, as this is more... More

Great option to see all the sites with me accompanied music and explanations throughout the whole trip in many different languages. Note that we had by one day get the next day free deal but it was not for 48 hours rather that whole day and the next so it's best to go and buy tickets in the morning.

We caught the Red Line bus and stayed on for the entire loop. We were able to get oriented and figure out which attractions we wanted to investigate more. The bus we were on had a cover over the open aired top deck so we didn't get sun burned. Great way to see the city when time is short.

The commentary is boring and so out of time with where we were on the tour. We found ourselves having to look around and ask where we were supposed to be looking and what we were looking at most of the time. It was cheap compared to other hop on-off tours but I think I would go with Big bus... More
