Can only recommend. You can get off the bus along the route and get back on the next one. You can use them for 24 or 48 hours depending on the ticket. This way you get a good overview and then explore everything.

The best thing was that the hop-on hop-off bus was right at the cruise terminal and you could save yourself the expensive transfer of the cruise company!

It was perfect! It met us at ship and we love the simplicity of getting on with vouchers for 48 hours ! Great staff clean buses and great Wi-Fi!

Excursion en combi para pocas personas excelente. Lugares excepcionales y guia ( Jonas) excepcional también. De alto profesionalismo

Not cheap though. But reliable. A bit more about the country and people should have been.
