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.

it is a very extensive open air museum with zoo. We were there in the winter and then a lot is closed. Especially now and with Covid and at Christmas, where they also had a shortage of staff. So, if you go, go with nicer weather and not in winter.

only flaw that you have not found some stops because few reported so many stages made on foot ... and the schedule is very restricted

We had pre-booked an entrance ticket and went for the queue, which was long.

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