Easy to access and convenient seat. There was some trouble with QR code. The driver was unable to scan QR code voucher in Getyourguide apps. However, he still let us come into the bus after check others info from the voucher. So far everything are good. The bus brought us to many attractive places .

The hop-on hop-off bus tour was quite convenient for us. We started our travel with this and we got a picture what to visit later on. Our guide was friendly, nice and informative. Recommended!
