based on 30 reviews

The activation of the service was simple and intuitive, the paper material provided on site was useful and easy to consult. The pass for public transport should be considered as an alternative to day tickets. The conventions and discounts could be extended.

This was very interesting! We had a Dutch private tour. We were with 3 teenagers, the guide really took this into account. We had a drink together along the way. It was super cozy and very informal.

Super nice experience I was able to discover the city for the first time thanks to the transport access

The guide was amazing with lots of knowledge but it was very expensive for what was offered

Great experience! top pass with transport and tickets to 40 museums included
