I would not recommend this at all. I usually like a hop-on hop-off bus tour, but not this one. The buses run around every half hour but most of the stops do not have much to keep you interested for half an hour. There was no commentary whatsoever, not even an announcement when you got to each stop to tell you where you were. The main area of interest was around the cathedral area, and I could have got a local bus directly there for under 1.50 instead of paying nearly 18 for this ticket. There was the promise of a free walking tour, but this was very misleading - it was only when we got to the cathedral stop at 10:45am that the driver announced that the walking tour would take place at 1:15pm. Avoid.
This tour was like riding a city bus. The points of interest were not interesting, but that may be more the destination and viator was trying to make the best of it. If the weather is good, just hit the beach.
Great way to see the city and the sights.

Most of the audio equipment on our first bus was either not available or not working. On the second bus it was working but there was not enough sound definition to make it suitable for listening to while the bus was moving and the accent of the recorded voice was difficult for an English ear to understand. There isn't really enough to see around the town to make it worth while. Best get a bus straight to the old town and spend time there. Thought it was expensive for what it was.

The tour was great, but not that much to see. Just returned from the trip, and we would definitely go with Hop-on Hop off again.

Having been on various Hop-on Hop-off tours I would say this was not the most interesting! And the background music on the soundtrack nearly covers the commentary making it difficult to follow. Not the best value for money.
As we expected, Hop-on Hop-off tour was the best for our very short stay. We were able to learn the best this beautiful city can give to tourists. The price was reasonable. Thank you, Viator.

Enjoyed the Hop on Hop off tour. We travelled in late October, so there was no problem getting the seats we wanted on the bus. Needed a light jacket for the top of the bus. Fantastic

This was a wonderful experience with friendly drivers and staff. We were able to view this beautiful island and easily get on and off per our preferences. We especially enjoyed the Old Town area and your tour made that possible. There was a bus stop located conveniently close to the pier, which made access very easy, and the bus drove through some interesting parts of the city, giving us a nice bird's-eye view. Thanks very much.
