I use these buses as my first orientation in a new city. First the compl. Round tour..then I choose the exits that I want to see in more detail. The service is very good, language selectable. I can only recommend. I buy the map for the first 72 hours. Have fun exploring new cities!

Magnifique visite, la plus belle vue de la ville avec des commentaires vraiment utiles et disponibles dans un grand nombre de langue. Nous recommandons vivement une visite en bateau qui, en 1h, permet de connaitre beaucoup sur la ville.

Well-successful exhibition and a lot of information via audio guide. Ride was fun. The visit will be remembered for a long time.
