For a first overview and especially if you are not so good on foot, great way to explore the city. Super nice and competent bus driver and city guide. The processing via getyourguide is also highly recommended. Discounts available, good communication and information, super fast refund for another activity that couldn't take place due to the weather.

Riesen Spaß für groß und klein. Sehr zu empfehlen. Die kleine (5 Jahre) fuhr bei Papa mit. Dank der Schwimmweste (kostenfrei vom Veranstalter) fühlte sich unsere kleine Nichtschwimmerin trotzalledem sicher und stellte sich sogar in tiefem Wasser auf's Brett.

Everything worked out great, the booking was great and the tour guide was very refreshing with her knowledge.

Very good...you have to get off here and there to enjoy the ride...take your time

Great local tour guide. Get a great overview during the 1.5 hour tour.
