We took the Hop On- Hop Off Bus in Monreale-Palermo Italy, it was so very disappointing! What time does the Monreal bus to Palermo come? 11:05... The Bus was a half an hour late from Monreale to Palermo, then we wanted to change lines. We hopped off, at the # 2 spot, which was the second stop from Monreal and the Blue Line Bus was scheduled come along in about four minutes we waited and waited and waited. We waited forty minutes, yes Four-Zero and it never came.
We finally walked around hoping to find the market we thought we would find off the Blue Line stop, we finally gave up and looked for any line and found one, it was the number 9 Red line, great, we can just ride it to the stop near the Blue Line, we think, nope... They thew us off at the very next stop!
We then have to wait another half hour for the next Blue line bus, we realize now, if we continue the Blue Line, we will miss our last bus to Monreal. We Hop off to catch our Red Line back to the Monreal pick up. after wasting one of our of two days in Palermo waiting for Hop On buses that never came or came late then only to be thrown off the Hop On bus at the next stop! What a RIP OFF!
In all, it cost my girlfriend an I 50 Euros to do what it cost my husband 2.60 Euros to do and we had all the frustration of dealing with no shows and waiting! Don't bother! Good concept but poorly run! Oh, by the way, when it was raining and against the traffic up to Monreal at rush hour it cost 25.00 Euros for two.
