Excellent tour. Be careful to get the correct bus tour as 2 different company's. I waited in the queue for the city hopper so wasted 30 minutes. This bus stops the opposite side of the square. However this company seems to have smaller queues to get on the bus than the other.

There’s really nothing not to like about it. You get a solid lay of the land and ability to decide what you do or do not want to see. Good service and easy navigation.

Two days was just right. We also used the bus as a normal means of transport.

Great guided bus tour, visits all the necessary landmarks. Easy travel!

Minimal queues and we’ll managed access to the gondolas at each stop
