I am a lover of the Hop-on-Hop- off buses. Capetown, Buenos Aires, Amsterdam, Madrid, London, Las Palmas, so I bought it in Osaka. The worst by far. The schedule, the long stops, the very very bad information and the more or less ininteligible english.

Had a free morning in Osaka and wanted to get quick overview of city. From traveling world hop on, hop off buses are a great way to learn about a city. For the equivalent of $25 we got a non-narrated bus run of the city....More

My wife and I did the food tour a few hours ago. To begin, you go pick up your vouchers at a shopping mall near Namba (a big shopping center). From what I had read before, I thought we would get to pick which restaurants...More
