They check the tickets almost every stop (stopping at less scenic locations), so it takes forever on the route. Frustrating when time is a premium on vacation. They could compensate a little with the long stops if they had more information on the headset. It...More

I have done these tours in many countries and usually been happy but this was disapointing. I took the first bus from valletta center, there are no stops in most places first of all and you just need to know the stop. Got off on...More

We knew going in it wasn’t going to be good after reading all the reviews of other travelers. But the schedule timing is actually terrible. You cannot do both routes in 1 day unless you catch the first bus at 8:30am.....which is before you can...More

For a start there are different reps charging different prices. The drivers are rude and don't stop at the designated stops the headphones / commentary doesn't work the seats are uncomfortable and the bus goes too fast! Spend your money doing something else!

definitely use the public transport, it's cheaper, there's plenty of buses. I just wished we'd use them instead of paying a fortune for city sightseeing. What a waste of money and time. Don't waste your holiday and time... More

It seems you have had a tour with this company aligned with a cruise ship. I went with City Sightseeing booked through accommodation and it was excellent. While walking around attractions, however, I did see people... More
