Basically the route itself wasn't really bad - it does go around all the different attractions in Santander. However the staff didn't know were a tad rude - we stopped multiple times so the driver can go and have a cigarette. After we and another couple asked when we will be leaving the answer always was 5 more minutes, 5... More

We always choose a bus tour as a way to see a new city. This tour is shorter than many but still represents good value and shows you the highlights. These was a stop outside our hotel in Sardinero and the staff member on duty there was really friendly and helpful. We got off a couple of times but another... More

This is an ideal way to explore Santander and to get to know the area. Santander is quite a big city and therefore some of the areas are not in walking distance of the centre.

Well worth it to see the best of the city, it takes about an hour to complete the circuit, as the name suggests you can hop off and check an area out and hop back on after an hour or whenever you like. It's quite spread out the beach area is at the opposite side of the main city area.... More

Although we only had four hours here, before boarding the Britanny Ferry for the UK there is lots to see and explore, as we have had several nights here a few years ago. After a long drive from Santigo de Compestilla, we parked at the dock area and had a great very late lunch at the Hotel Bahia, which being... More

No morals. Plenty of people raking the bins. People begging on every corner. Inner corners smell of piss. Plenty of drug dealing and seediness.

Every attraction I visit I always take a trip on their sightseeing tour just to save the bother of wandering aimlessly about and then missing all the best parts. This tour showed me to places that I would never have found on my own and made my day !
