The thing about this hop on hop off bus tour is that it is very long and there is insufficient interest on the route to make it worthwhile. Most of the commentary time was silence as a result, which reflect that. I think the miles travelled should be greatly shortened. Only about 20% of the route was countryside the rest... More

Rather poor, you get on the bs, and if you are unlucky the driver neither hands you out earphones nor is he calling out the individual stops, unfortunately most of the stops do not have any signs giving an indication about the name of the stop. I have used countless hop on hop pff buses on my travels, but this... More

We had this included as the pickup for Malta sightseeing's Two harbours cruise. However the bus never arrived. The next day the company rep at our hotel told us that we'd gone to the wrong place! Strangely their rep, at one of their own huts, at the time had confirmed we at the right place as the location and time... More

We have just finished the North circuit having completed the South one yesterday. Unfortunately, a rainy day today did not help but this did mean sitting in the lower floor. Our double decker has adverts completely covering the windows - the type with a mesh base - which, on a sightseeing bus, was pretty disastrous as all we could see... More

Worth taking a sightseeing bus . You can visit all the places in just one day. You can spend as much time as you like in any of the stops. Very interesting

This review is for the big red open top bus. I think two companies run them with curiously similar names and buses. Despite all the warnings the buses all turned up very broadly when they should have done. We did the north tour one day and the south tour the next. The buses are quite tired and invariably the audio... More

Like previous reviewers, we found that few headset sockets worked. This wasn't a real disaster as the great views and a guidebook filled the gap. Leaving and rejoining the your at Mdina was a total shambles with people climbing over one another to board buses with unclear destinations. My advice is to walk 5-minutes to rejoin the your at Rabat... More

We were approached off the bus by a vendor. We were interested in a hop on hop off and the vendor from this company told us this bus was "the same" as the other company (being the REAL hop on hop off). We paid 7.50 euro each and that was the only reason I rated them 2 stars vs 1.... More
