A bus with an audio guide gave me an idea of the location of the city. I think it's a very convenient sightseeing bus. It was early January, but it wasn't that cold and most of the people were sightseeing on the second floor. If I have the opportunity, I would like to participate again.

It was good and complete enough. The only thing we didn't like is that they asked for the physical receipt every time you got on, and right now in this technological age it would be great if it was better by cell phone. For the rest, I would take it again.

It was fantastic! We had blue skies and sunshine in early November and spent the day majestically nacelling through this glorious city. If you sit on top of the "convertible deck", you don't notice the hustle and bustle of traffic on the street below and you can watch the extraordinarily beautiful, elegant house facades pass by. It's just a bit tricky to find the right stop at the transfer points (where you can transfer from Route 1 to Route 2 and vice versa). They are only marked very inconspicuously.
