Reviewed yesterday NEW

The driver was really friendly, the ticket was reasonably priced. The information was good that was provided through the earphones. The bus was a good way to find out about the city even though the route is easily walkable. I would recommend this bus tour if you are only in the city for a short time. It is not so... More

This bus was just ok. We knew getting on that it was not a hop on hop off bus. Friends who had been here before recommended it, but we didn't find that it really showed us much of interest. I agree with the other reviewers - save the money and go buy beer and tapas

Definitely not worth the money. The audio was not coordinated with the drive so we were looking at something completely different. I used these buses from Ireland down and this was just terrible.

We have used this type of transportation in many cities as a way of touring and learning more about the city so we thought this bus would be the same. This was a total waste of money with only one stop. We wanted to stay on to tour again up top (only seats below when we got on) after only... More

Friendly helpful bus driver made sure we got the best deal we were entitled to. Head sets & map provided. Great dialogue along the whole route. Highly recommend this to visitors.

Always find these bus tours a good way to get a feel for a place and check out where you would like to spend more time - actually most interest is in the main centre and shopping area so didn't find it as interesting as some

Very deceiving. Driver unfriendly and made us get off bus at end. We were told we could stay on to see the ALL sights that we missed the first go round. It is NOT worth the time or money!!

Always try to get on a city tour bus if new to the area. Gives a good view of what's where. This wasn't disappointing. Earphones were great and volume worked really well. Coming from someone hard of hearing that says enough. Gave really good information on different aspects and interests around the city. Would recommend

Having travelled on tour buses in other cities, I have found this a good way to learn about places quickly whilst visiting for a short break. The Cartagena tour bus was very disappointing, we would have been as well just catching a normal bus into town. My headphones didn't work so I had to share with my husband, the commentary... More

I couldn't hear the commentary very well over the noise of the engine, so I missed out on some of what we were looking at. You don't see any must-see sights, but good for a general look around the city.
