£20 each was quite expensive compared with other "red bus" tours I have been on and there didn't seem to be much of interest to see. The tour wasn't helped by headphones that didn't work properly and some other people appeared to be having the same problem including my wife sat next to me. I wasn't able to try a... More

This has 10 stops on the loop around Las Palmas,but there are only 3 stops worth getting off for Las Palmas itself, the Shopping Arcade and Vegueta. This is the traditional part of Las Palmas.

This is a good way to find your way around the City. It allows you to orientate yourself and decide what it is you are interested in seeing more of. The day tour costs 25 Euro's per person but also includes a walking tour of the old part of Las Palmas, free entrance to the Cathedral Tower and Tapas and... More

We were in Gran Canaria for the day on a cruise ship and decided to do the HOHO bus. The bus stop is at the end of the cruise dock, so it is very handy and convenient if you are on a cruise ship. We had about a half hour wait to get on a bus as it was very... More

Boarded a local bus and took a ride from the south of the island up to Las Palmas, didn't really know what to expect, but in truth I thought it would be similar to other large towns on other Canaria islands I have visited in the past. How incorrect was I !! Very wrong. What a inspirational city, very cosmopolitan,... More

We stopped off at Gran Canaria during a cruise itinerary and as we had not booked an organised excursion, decided to see the city of Las Palmas by the hop on-hop off bus tour.

While on a cruise stop, we decided to take advantage of this conveniently located bus tour. We have taken some very good hop-on, hop-off bus tours that were well priced and informative. This was not one of them! For the tour they offer, £40 for 2 people is extremely overpriced. A drive through downtown with little to see of significance... More
