I take these buses in every city to see as much as possible in a short time ... the buses always run at regular intervals ... it was a bit confusing (don't know if that's true) that there are 2 red lines that don't belong together. The green line that we took seems to be more of a shuttle service to the cruise terminal.

With our guide Patrick, we see a lot of beautiful landscape and had a really fun time kayaking! Patrick was very friendly and very helpful to learn how to use the kayak. It was really perfect, I recommend 10/10! Best guide!

The guide told us a lot of interesting details about the local animals. We were a very small group

The tour was very well organized and the guide was very nice! I would definitely book again :))

The bus is a great way to explore the city, I can only recommend it.
