My husband and I walked to the marina and was quoted 25 euros for a ticket each. When I went to walk away I was told we could purchase tickets for 20 euros instead if we did not want the tapas and drink so we settled for this option. We were given ear-phones but were not told which channel would... More

Last palmas is not a beautiful city with lots of things to see but even not beautiful this service is very good and cover all of the interesting places in the city. The ride includes a guide walk in old town and also some museum visits and discount in some restaurants

Starting from the marina, the first part of the bus route covers some pretty unremarkable parts of town. Mind you, there’s nothing wrong with all those offices, shops and apartments along the roads that the bus meanders. I’m sure they are all perfectly practical and functional for the local populace. But for the tourist looking for some interesting architecture, unusual... More

£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

The cost was 20€ (or 25€ which included free drink & tapas in various establishments) and the tour lasted approx 50 minutes. A commentary via earplugs which was informative but could have been better. Being a hop on hop off tour there were 11 stops along the route.

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.
